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.

The Flaming Lips - King's Mouth: Music and Songs - HOPELESS RECORDS
King’s Mouth contains twelve new original Flaming Lips compositions as well as album narration by Mick Jones (The Clash). The record is based on Wayne Coyne’s immersive art installation of the same name - which has seen its psychedelic visuals and soundscapes exhibited in museums all around the U.S.

Los Angeles Alternative band Grizfolk's new album Rarest Of Birds is an ode to Southern California classic rock with a 2019 spin. Dynamic, upbeat, and dreamy, "Believing" may be the best representation of the album.

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.

New Release Round-Up 07-12-19

 

New Releases 12 July 2019

Ed Sheeran - No. 6 Collaborations Project -  ATLANTIC
Ed Sheeran celebrates the release of his No. 6 Collaborations Project – which is out this week. This new collaboration follows the release of “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber, which shot straight to #1 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart and #2 overall on the Hot 100. All 184 Top 40 radio stations added the track, making it only the fifth song in the modern era to win support from the full panel of Mediabase-monitored pop stations. Likewise, all 97 adult radio stations in the country added the song. An instant worldwide phenomenon, “I Don’t Care” hit #1 in the UK, Australia, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, and more.

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 Gig

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.

RECORD STORE DAY 2019 STOCK LIST!

RECORD STORE DAY 2019 STOCK LIST!

It's that time again, folks. All shipments have been received, the store's laid out, and we're already mainlining black coffee. There are a million things we're excited about for this year's RSD, and I'm gonna try to lay it all out as simple as possible. Read on for details and policies! 

First off, we'll be opening doors at 7am sharp. We'll have coffee from Oddly Correct and donuts from Hana's for fuel. Scroll down to see our full stock-list going into Saturday. Be sure to take note of a few unofficial/European RSD titles that came through, as well!

For used record hounds (or late sleepers), we'll be dropping 750 used new arrivals at both 10 am and 5 pm, for a total of 1,500 records fresh on the floor throughout the day on Saturday. Then, to keep the party rolling, we'll drop 500 more on Sunday at 10 am. All killer, no filler this year. No matter what you're into, there's a reason to come dig. In case you hate math, that's 2,000 fresh used in 24 hours. 

We always do the best we can to bring you a hard-hitting slate of live music on RSD, and this year has got to be one of the most exciting and diverse lineups yet. We're going to be running live music from 2 pm until the end of the day. We'll be running two stages--an acoustic singer-songwriter showcase in the "courtyard" space next to the shop, as well as an indoor stage with full bands. Here's the schedule!

Courtyard Stage
2 PM - Iris Elke
4 PM - sex ed (of Mess)
6 PM - Addie Sartino (of the Greeting Committee)

Mills Stage
3 PM - The Freedom Affair (featured on the Soul Slabs Vol. 2 compilation!)
5 PM - Brandon Phillips and The Condition
7 PM - Bill MacKay

Here are a few other highlights for the weekend:

  • RSD goodie bags while supplies last! 
  • Swag bags loaded with promo merch and other prizes
  • TWO chances to win $250 in store credit (exclusions apply, see full details in store)
  • Loads of new ticket giveaways for upcoming KC shows including MGMT, Interpol/Foals, Neko Case, Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson, Jason Isbell/Brandi Carlile and way more!

It's never too late to follow our Facebook event page for this Saturday. We'll use it to post updates on used records, performers, and giveaways. Check it out here!

Just so you're aware, there will also be a small film crew here in the morning shooting footage for an upcoming documentary. Smile, you're on camera. 

ALSO, we're planning to make a BIG EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT this weekend; get yourself ready for a new adventure.

Now, for the RSD store policies:

First, you can have as many individual exclusive titles you want on Saturday, but you will be limited to one copy of each title. No doubles, triples, etc. This goes for RSD exclusives only. You can buy as many copies of Dan Fogelberg'sNether Lands as your heart desires.  Judy says she will ask you to please exit the building if you even pull more than one title at the time.  She made me type that. 

Secondly, a note on gift cards: we truly appreciate your loyalty and continued support of the store. Since Record Store Day is such a busy day, we are not able to redeem gift cards on Saturday. Thanks for your support, and we look forward to seeing see you when you cash-in those GC’s in the future. 

Alright, I won't keep you any longer because we all need our rest. We'll see you bright and early. 

All our best,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

3/15/19 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

3/15/19 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

First things first: a huge thank you to everyone who came out, donated, or contributed in any other way to our fundraiser event for the SEK Humane Society last night. We were able to raise money and supplies for a great shelter. Overall, a huge success!

Plenty of great new music out this week, headlined by a couple notable hip-hop new releases. Atlanta rapper FUTURE's newest effort The Wizrd is out, and west coast heavyweight YG is issuing his critically acclaimed 2014 debut My Krazy Life, on vinyl for the first time! 

Other highlights this week include Stephen Malkmus's Groove Denied, a previously unreleased solo album that Malkmus recorded entirely himself. We've also got Angel Du$t's much-anticipated full-length Pretty Buff, out on Roadrunner Records. Catchy as heck!

A personal pick of the week is the new album from The Comet Is Coming. This electro-psych-jazz outfit from the UK has been putting out wild recordings for a few years now, and Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery is their first on the iconic Impulse! label. Check out "Summon the Fire" here. I think you'll be into it.

As far as reissues go, we've got the first US release of David Byrne's great 2004 solo record Grown Backwards, along with a killer Velvet Underground box set that brings together the band's first three proper studio records alongside Nico's Chelsea Girl and definitive recordings from the band's scrapped fourth album. Check out the list below for info on all this week's new releases. 

Again, thanks to everyone who made the SEK Humane Society benefit a success. If you're still wanting to get out here to see live music, there are a lot more opportunities ahead. Check it:

This Tuesday, March 19th we'll have singer-songwriter INGS in from Seattle here to perform. All the info is here.

March 30th, it's Greg Wheeler & the Polygamist Mall Cops with Ebony Tusks. 6 pm. More here. 

And then, yeah, April 13th--Record Store Day. Orders have been placed and we're all in for a good time this year. We'll have all the exclusive releases, tons of used new arrivals, food and drink, and a wicked day of live music prepared. Here's a look at the schedule as it stands now:

Courtyard Stage
2 PM - Iris Elke
4 PM - sex ed
6 PM - Addie Sartino

Mills Stage
3 PM - The Freedom Affair
5 PM - Brandon Phillips and The Condition
7 PM - Bill McKay (!!! - check out "Pre-California" from his upcoming Drag City release Fountain Fire).

Keep in mind that we're still running a bunch of ticket giveaways. We're your hookup for tons of great shows coming through town, including Catfish and the Bottlemen, Interpol, Metric, Laura Jane Grace, and more!

See you soon,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

1/11/19 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List: Go Chiefs! Edition

1/11/19 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List: Go Chiefs! Edition

Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out our new year survey last week! We really appreciate your feedback and are excited for more opportunities to improve and grow in the coming year. We're going to leave it open for another week, so if you haven't gotten the chance to fill it out, go ahead and do so here. If you include your name and phone number, you'll be entered to win $20 in store credit! We'll announce the winner a week from today.

Now that we're starting to settle into the new year, the new releases are picking up a bit. There's plenty of stuff to be excited about this week, especially for metal fans. Legendary Norwegian black metal band MAYHEM is releasing a loaded 4xLP/3x10" box-set featuring tons of previously out-of-print and unreleased material. We've also got single reissues of the Ordo Ad Chao (2007) and Chimera (2004) LP's. There's also a chunk of recent Immortal reissues hitting the floor this week, too. 

The kind folks at Polyvinyl records have decided to issue Kero Kero Bonito's 2018 art pop excursion Time 'n' Place on wax, and we'll have that along with fresh reissues of Bonito Generation and the Totep EP available for sale. New music from Matt & Kim and Magic Sword sweetens the deal. Check out the full list below!

This week also brought tons of great new arrivals. We've got great restocks in new and used vinyl, of course, but also a particularly juicy selection of books and new CD's to peruse. Seriously, we've got multiple boxes of great new CD titles all priced $7.99 and under. Stock up for that new Walkman you got for Xmas!

One goal we have for 2019 is to bring you even more killer in-store events than we have in the past, and I gotta say, we're off to a pretty good start. We've actually got three in-stores lined up for the the next week or so. It starts with local teen rockers Quite Frankly on Friday at 6 pm. Next Thursday (Jan 17th), we'll be hosting poet Shayla Lawson for a reading and conversation. Her 2018 collection, I Think I'm Ready to See Frank Ocean is quite fantastic and I think you should buy it. Local poet Jermaine Thompson will also read! Reading starts at 6 pm.

Then, next Saturday (Jan 19th), local singer-songwriter Chloe Jacobson will be here to celebrate the release of her new record Frozen Fruit (out via Manor Records!) Chloe will be joined by Daniel Gum and Budget Motel. Music kicks off at 6. All events free and all ages, as always!

Lastly, a reminder that we're always looking to buy your old records, tapes, CDs, and band shirts. Really, if it's got to do with music, we're interested. Bring us your stuff and let's make a deal! Can always offer cash and/or store credit.

Go Chiefs,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round-Up 12/21 @ Mills Record Company

New Releases 21 December 2018 

mewithoutyou - Untitled L.P. - Run For Cover

mewithoutYou’s seventh album will be released this fall on Run For Cover Records. For eighteen years, the Philadelphia band has been a banner name for fans across genres because of their kinetic and truly original style. On their latest [Untitled] Album, the band continues to create the same intensity that has captivated fans for almost two decades. The album was produced by Will Yip at nearby Studio 4, the same place where 2015’s epic Pale Horses was tracked. The intense two year writing process included a stay at a 150 year old barn in Western Pennsylvania. This process has proven to create some of the band’s finest work to date - while elements of the band’s signature sound still remain, there are new aspects at work. Lead single “Julia (or, ‘Holy To the LORD’ on the Bells of Horses)” is an explosive slow-burner. Marked by a soaring guitar refrain that echoes throughout the first verse, vocalist Aaron Weiss’ other-worldly lyrics are sung rather than shouted through his renown spoken-word style. As a whole the record moves like seasons - songs shift between chaos and intimacy, frailty and strength, cacophony and harmony with expert navigation.

 Mariah Carey - Caution - Epic

Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2018 release from the pop/R& superstar. Features the tracks "GTFO" and "The Distance" (featuring Ty Dolla Sign). Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles, more than any solo artist in history. Mariah is recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, numerous American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award, the World Music Award for "World's Best-Selling Female Artist of the Millennium," and BMI's "Icon Award" for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few - with her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah is truly the template of the modern pop performance. Mariah's ongoing impact has transcended the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large.

Siouxsie & the Banshees - Peepshow - Geffen Records

Peepshow is the ninth studio album by English alternative rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees, released in September 1988. It was their first record as a quintet. With the arrival of multi-instrumentalist Martin McCarrick, the group recorded a multifaceted album including the singles "Peek-a-Boo" and "The Last Beat of My Heart". The record was a commercial success, peaking at No. 68 on the Billboard 200 chart in December, 1988. It spent a total of 20 weeks on that chart. Pressed on 180G vinyl.

12/21 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

Impossible to believe that it’s the week of Christmas, but here we are. Since you subscribe to this mailing list, I’m going to guess that you’ve got some wax and/or gift cards waiting under the tree for you. If you’re still needing to get some shopping done before the holiday, we’ve got you covered. From records to shirts to books and games, we’re proud to be your one stop last-minute shop. 

There are a few new releases of note hitting the floor just in the nick of time, including two releases from mewithoutYou, Untitled EP and Untitled LP. We’ve also got the new Mariah Carey, Caution, on wax (which pairs perfectly, we suspect, with her iconic Xmas record--also available!) 

Experimental pop producer Sophie’s acclaimed 2018 release Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides finally gets a vinyl treatment this week, and to round it out we’ve got four new reissues from Siouxsie & the Banshees and Queen’s The Game back on wax. Check out the full list of new releases below!

We’ve also done our part in stocking up on all of our consistent best sellers, so it’s fair to say that the store is loaded right now. There’s a good chance we’ve got what you’re looking for. And hey, if not there are always GIFT CARDS.

In the spirit of giving, we’ve decided to run a drawing for $150 in store credit! The ballot box will be open tomorrow, 12/21 through 12/31. We’ll draw the winner on January 1st. Happy New Year. Get yourself here and enter.

Everybody’s crazy for year-end lists, and we were sad to have to leave out a ton of great stuff from our lists last week, so we decided to throw out some more favorites from 2018 to make sure that we cover all the stuff we loved this year.

As far as events go, we’re super excited to announce that poet Shayla Lawson will be in the shop on Thursday, January 17th for a reading and discussion. Her new book, I Think I’m Ready to See Frank Ocean (Saturnalia Press, 2018) explores the poet’s personal connections to Ocean’s work, and in doing so, intricately comments on our emotional interactions with music and pop culture. She’ll be reading from the book and discussing her work. Local Kansas City poet Jermaine Thompson will also read, and we’ll have live music to finish up the night. Mark your calendars, and pick up Shayla’s book in-store!

New Release Round-Up 12/14 @ Mills Record Company

New Releases 14 December 2018

Primus - Antipop - Interscope

Double vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Vinyl LP pressing. Antipop is the sixth studio album by alt-rock band Primus, originally released on October 19, 1999. It was the band's final release before their hiatus from 2000 to 2003. It was also the last album with drummer Bryan Mantia. The album features several well-known guest musicians and producers, including Tom Waits, James Hetfield (of Metallica), Jim Martin (former member of Faith No More), Fred Durst (of Limp Bizkit) and Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine). The band has regarded the album's production as tense and uncomfortable, with the members of the band not getting along well with each other during recording. After the release of the album the band went on a three-year hiatus from 2000 to 2003. Claypool said "We went on a hiatus, which is a fancy way of saying we just didn't like being around each other and we wanted to break up but we didn't have the balls to actually break up. I think we stopped before we totally shit our pants, but I think the closest we came was doing the Antipop record, " While producing the song "Lacquer Head", Durst encouraged Primus to return to the more aggressive metal sound of their earlier albums Sailing the Seas of Cheese and Frizzle Fry for Antipop.

BROCKHAMPTON - Iridescence - RCA

Double vinyl LP pressing. Iridescence is the fourth studio album by collective Brockhampton. The album is their major-label debut and the first installment of their The Best Years of Our Lives trilogy. The self-produced album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, as well as the group's own studio in Hawaii. Iridescence debuted at #1 on the US Billboard200 albums chart, becoming the group's first chart-topping album.

Killers - Day & Age - Island

Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Deluxe 10th Anniversary pressing including three bonus tracks. Day & Age is the third studio album by American rock band The Killers. It was released on November 18, 2008, by Island Records. Frontman and lead vocalist Brandon Flowers stated that it is the band's "most playful record." As of May 2015, Day & Age has sold three million copies worldwide. Following the release of the album, the band embarked on the Day & Age World Tour.

Atmosphere - When Life Gives You A Lemon You Paint That Shit Go - RHYMESAYERS

Limited double colored vinyl LP pressing with two bonus tracks and lemon scented LP labels. Includes digital download. Originally released in April 2008, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold was met with critical acclaim, debuting at No. 5 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. By this time, Atmosphere had already grown into one of the most accomplished MC/producer duos in independent hip-hop, with a half-dozen official full-length albums under their belt, along with a dozen more limited tour albums, EPs, and various side projects. While Ant's ASR-born beats had grown increasingly melodic and musical, Slug's name had become synonymous with introspective raps, and together, they'd galvanized a faithful following. However, the thing that set When Life Gives You Lemons apart from previous releases was that it reflected a pivotal shift in Atmosphere's songwriting processes, where they transitioned from self-reflective to broadly narrative. Rather than expressing stories from their own POV, Lemons... was based entirely on fictional stories and characters, addressing societal issues at large, some of which revolved around themes of parenthood - perhaps foretelling of their future founding of "Dad Rap."


The Decemberists - Traveling On EP - Capitol
With over 20M streams of their 8th studio recording I’ll Be Your Girl, The Decemberists release their acclaimed B-sides EP, Traveling On. The EP consists of 4 tracks from the IBYG boxset “Exploded Edition” now released for first time along with a full band version of “Traveling On” from I’ll Be your Girl. For over 17 years The Decemberists have reigned highly acclaimed, with more than 200M streams and 1.8M adjusted albums spanning worldwide. The Decemberists continue a tradition of releasing a post LP B-sides EP, with Traveling on, previous releases include Picaresqueties (2005), Connect Sets (2006), Long Live The King (2011) & Florasongs (2015).



Lady Gaga - The Fame: 10th Anniversary [Limited Edition USB Stick] - Interscope Records
In celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Lady Gaga's explosive 2008 debut album, ‘The Fame,’ a special collectible product offering is being released this week. This limited-edition character USB, packaged in a custom display box, contains the original album, ‘The Fame,’ along with three bonus tracks, ‘The Fame Monster’ original album, both digital booklets, eight music videos, and an early EPK, filmed at the start of Lady Gaga's rapid ascent to stardom.

12/7 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

12/7 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

This week's been a hard one around here. You may know by now, but we lost our beloved shop-dog and top saleswoman, Loretta, on Tuesday. We've felt super loved and cared for with all the condolences and memories you all have shared. Those are seriously appreciated. 

Also wanted to give a huge thanks to JHS Pedals and everyone who came out Saturday for the Off the Record event. It was a huge success, and we were honored to be a part of it. If you're buying guitar pedals this holiday season, think of JHS first. Check out their offerings here. 

We've got a pretty stellar new release lineup this week, headlined by some killer reissues you'll want to check out. I'm personally very excited to see the Hold Steady's 2008 rock and roll celebration Stay Positive reissued on a 10th anniversary deluxe edition. This 3xLP set features a slick die-cut cover, the full album remastered for 45 RPM, and eight b-sides. If you haven't heard the record, listen to the first five Kiss records and then listen to it. We've also got some new Paul McCartney remasters, as well as a beautiful box-set comprising ALL John Coltrane recordings from his remarkably prolific 1963 sessions. 

We've also got some releases of classic hip-hop records with re-imagined covers from the folks at Marvel. Liquid Swords, LL Cool J, and 50 Cent are all in the house.

The holiday records are still dropping in full force, too. This week brings Chrissy Teigen's husband's 2018 collection of seasonal songs, A Legendary Christmas. Make sure to cruise our holiday-themed display for more titles!

Of course, we've also got the limited new Sufjan Stevens 7", "Lonely Man of Winter," to keep you warm as the temperature drops. Check the full list of new titles below!

As far as giveaways go, we're still running a giveaway for the new Jeff Tweedy memoir (which should also be back available for sale by this weekend!), as well as a signed Fleet Foxes flier and all kinds of tickets. We've got chances to see Trampled By Turtles, Kurt Vile, Peter Murphy, Hippo Campus. Chvrches, Post Animal, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise! Pop in to give yourself a shot at 'em. 

Lastly, keep in mind that our GIFT CARDS make the perfect gift for anyone who's into music. Also, don't forget that if you live outside KC or can't make it into see us, you can shop us online at millsrecordcompany.com.

Take care,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round-Up 12/7 @ Mills Record Company

New Release Round-Up 12/7 @ Mills Record Company

New Releases 07 December 2018 

The Struts - Young & Dangerous - Interscope

British glam-rockers The Struts return with their sophomore album, Young & Dangerous, four years after the release of their debut. Having recently wrapped up a tour with the Foo Fighters and announced their own headlining tour, the band now releases an album that proves it has no intention of slowing down. Pulling from influences like Queen, The Killers and The Strokes, Young & Dangerous showcases how The Struts have developed as a band and begun to carve out their own place.

The Hold Steady - Stay Positive - Vagrant

Vinyl LP pressing. The Hold Steady's fourth album Stay Positive (2008) served as an excellent progression for the best bar band in indie rock and featured a much more adventurous sound to which the group credits producer John Agnello who also helmed their 2006 breakthrough release, Boys And Girls In America. The album sees the band include more diverse instrumentation alongside their bar-room rock, including mandolin, harpsichord, strings and horns. SingerCraig Finn defined Stay Positive as an album, musically and lyrically, about the attempt to age gracefully. The band's gift for literate, anthemic songwriting finds a new focus Finn calls more musical, more dynamic, different instrumentation, more complex arrangements and not always hiding behind raw volume.


LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out - Def Jam

Artist and illustrator Tim Bradstreet reimagines The Punisher on the cover of this Marvel variant hip-hop cover, paying homage to LL Cool J’s fan-favorite, Mama Said Knock You Out. The record, released in 1990 via Def Jam Records, was mostly produced by Marley Marl and eventually was certified double Platinum by the RIAA. Its title song nabbed LL the Best Rap Solo Performance at the 1992 Grammy Awards. Released on opaque red vinyl.

Paul McCartney & Wings - Wild Life: Remastered

Paul McCartney & Wings - Wild Life: RemasteredPaul McCartney & Wings - Wild Life: RemasteredPaul McCartney & Wings - Wild Life: Remastered - Capitol
Wild Life’s limited deluxe edition treatment features the full album remastered at Abbey Road plus 25 bonus audio tracks including rough mixes of the album, original single edits, B-sides, home recordings and other previously unreleased material across three CDs.

The Wild Life deluxe package includes a 128-page book written by David Fricke telling the story behind the album, 48-page scrapbook of tour diaries + more.  Also available on 2LP and 2CD.

As far as this week's new releases, we've got the 1975's newest, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, for sale on Indie Exclusive white vinyl (CD too!). To celebrate the release, we'll be holding a listening party from 4-6 pm on Friday. We'll spin the record from front to back, and have limited posters to give away to attendees. Of course, you'll be able to pick up the record and take it home for another few spins!

We're also excited about Jeff Tweedy's latest solo effort, Warm, which comprises eleven brand new tracks from the songwriter of Wilco fame. 

To top it off, we've got the next round of Kate Bush reissues in, including TWO more box sets featuring the remainder of her studio albums and a set of rarities, demos, and unreleased material.  Check the full list below for info on the rest of this week's new releases.

THIS SATURDAY, we're extremely excited to have KC's own JHS Pedals in the shop demoing their pedals. This isn't just your average gear demo though. Owner and guitar pedal-whiz Josh Scott will be playing and re-creating classic guitar sounds from some of the most recognizable guitar tracks in music history. Whether you're a guitar player or not, this will be a highly educational and cool experience! Click the "Events" tab below for more info.

Lastly, we've still got plenty of great used new arrivals hanging around from the last week! Still plenty of digging left to do.

See you this weekend,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round-Up 11/23/18 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round-Up 11/23/18 at Mills Record Company

New Releases 23 November 2018

Mac Miller - Swimming
The fifth full-length release for the Pittsburgh rapper features guest appearances from Dām-Funk, Dicaprio, Dev Hynes, Snoop Dogg, Syd, and Thundercat.

Beach Fossils - Clash The Truth
With a full time drummer (and co-writer of two tracks on the LP) Beach Fossils entered the studio in the fall of 2012 with producer Ben Greenberg of The Men. Instead of merely going from a "bedroom DiY" project to a "better fidelity studio project" the deliberate decision to work with Ben was determined to capture, if not in style, the spirit and enthusiasm of punk and aggressive music in general.

Brittney Spears - One More Time (Picture DIsc)
The greatest pop record of the 20th century (1998 y'all whacthu know about it?!). Now on coveted picture disc format, where it looks good on the wall but probably sounds mediocre on the player. Screw it, "it's Brittney bitch". You need this anyway.



Songs: Ohia - Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions
The Lioness is the first Jason Molina project to fully turn away from the battlefield folk and deconstructed Americana of earlier Songs: Ohia recordings. At the dawn of the 21st century, the album felt modern. It aligned Molina with a new set of peers - Low, Gastr del Sol, Red House Painters and, most importantly, the influential Scottish band Arab Strap, whose producer and members were crucial in the creation of The Lioness. The avant-garde tones and arrangements of Arab Strap are absorbed here into Molina's songwriting to create what would become, for many acolytes, the archetypal Songs: Ohia sound. Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions, the box set reissue, will serve as the seminal log of the era, complete with lost songs, photos, drawings, and essays from those who knew Molina best.



B12 - Time Tourist
Limited colored vinyl LP pressing, includes digital download. New edition of the second B12 album, originally released by Warp in 1996. It continues the sleek, Detroit-inspired sci-fi techno moves of their Electro-Soma era, but ties the tracks to a playful concept in which the tracks are presented as an educational soundtrack designed by the 22nd-century company B12 Systems. Housed in an evocative Designer's Republic sleeve based on a Trevor Webb airbrush painting, the sleevenotes riff on a dystopian future society looking back at the primitive past and includes references to such genre touchstones as Blade Runner, Philip K. Dick and Star Wars. For the new vinyl edition the original B12 technology times sleevenote has been re-designed as a standalone booklet insert, and there is an A5 sticker sheet of future corporate logos from the Time Tourist universe.

Laibach - The Sound Of Music 
The genre-breaking Slovenian collective have re-recorded the soundtrack for the beloved Julie Andrews film, The Sound Of Music. In 2015, Laibach famously performed much of The Sound of Music's soundtrack in Pyongyang, North Korea. Included on this album are Laibach's industrial-leaning takes on favorites such as the musical's title track, "Favorite Things" and "Do-Re-Mi." Also featured are the band's renditions of "Arirang," the unofficial national anthem of Korea, and "The Sound of Gayageum," a drum-heavy composition highlighting the traditional Korean instrument.



Calexico - The Black Light: 20th Anniversary Edition
An album about crossing physical and metaphorical borders that has never been timelier: Calexico's classic album “The Black Light“ turns 20 this year! This limited edition celebratory anniversary edition includes all new artwork by Victor Gastelum, extensive liner notes, and 11 bonus tracks. What was surprising about The Black Light (and what set its architects apart from their indie rock peers) was the album’s unusual willingness to wade into the rapids of American and Mexican culture, fully immersing itself midstream. From the outset, with ‘Gypsy’s Curse’, the record combines guitar twang and flamenco flourishes; and by its end, almost an hour later, it’s contrived a skillful and instinctive union of smoky bar room jazz, arthouse indie rock, and compelling mariachi brass in ‘Frontera’. If Calexico falls short as a name, it’s only in the fact that ‐ along‐ side their mining of Mexico’s fertile musical past ‐ Joey Burns and John Convertino weren’t just digging into California’s songbook... they were unearthing America’s too.

Saturday will of course be Small Business Saturday and there will be FOUR special limited edition singles will be available ONLY AT INDIE RECORD STORES:

Kid Doe (Particle Kid & John Doe) - Lucky Wheel [Indie Exclusive Small Business Saturday]

KID DOE Lucky Wheel 12" gold single 
X founder John Doe and musician Micah Nelson (AKA Particle Kid) have shared stages together (big ones at Willie Nelson's Luck Music Festival, small ones like the iconic Pappy & Harriet's in Joshua Tree) and now they're sharing a single! Each musician covers a song from the other here, plus another cover of a tune close to their heart.


Ben Folds - Mister Peepers [Indie Exclusive Small Business Saturday]

BEN FOLDS - Mr. Peepers 7" single
Written and recorded for a project in conjunction with the Washington Post Sunday Magazine, who approached Ben to write a song that spotlighted the art of storytelling. Ben chose to focus, with research assistance from a Post political writer, on a character currently in the news.


Tony Bennett & Diana Krall - Fascinating Rhythm [Indie Exclusive Small Business Saturday]

TONY BENNETT with DIANA KRALL - Fascinating Rhythm 10" single
"Fascinating Rhythm" was Tony Bennett's first physical recording in 1949, made under his stage name Joe Bari, and he revisits that for his latest project, a duet with his friend Diana Krall, showcasing their shared love of the music of George and Ira Gershwin! Both versions of that song are brought together for this special 10" single.


Ingrid Michaelson - Songs For The Season B-Sides [Indie Exclusive Small Business Saturday]

INGRID MICHAELSON Songs for The Season B-Sides 7" picture disc 
Professional singer-songwriter? Running your own label? Guess what!? That's being a small business owner! So it makes sense that Ingrid Michaelson is celebrating this festive time of year by releasing a 7" picture disc on Small Business Saturday! This indie record store-exclusive single has B-sides from her holiday album Songs Of The Season. 

For more information on these and other releases out this week, check out our New Releases charts by week section.

11/23/18 Weekly Newsletter: Black Friday, New Releases, and THANKS

11/23/18 Weekly Newsletter: Black Friday, New Releases, and THANKS

Hope everyone's holiday week has gotten off to an especially thankful start. We'll be taking the day off tomorrow, so we're getting things in line for Friday now. All the shipments that are gonna get here before Friday are in, so we can officially post our full stock list of Black Friday exclusives. You can see the full list of titles we received HERE. You can also find the list as well as 11/23 standard new releases below.

Doors open at 7 am on Friday, so we'll be here bright and early with all the coffee and donuts you need to work off your literal and/or figurative Thanksgiving hangover. 

Here are the full details for Friday (and Saturday!):
  • All the Record Store Day exclusives you want starting at 7 am. 
  • Oddly Correct coffee and Hana's Donuts until they're gone!
  • Swag bags stuffed with promo copies, promo merch, and other goodies to the first 100 customers. 
  • $250 Store Credit Enter-to-Win (!)
  • Ticket giveaways and enter to win for other deluxe prizes
  • Loads of used vinyl rarities and classics. Fresh used out at noon on Friday, another drop of 500 at 5 pm on Friday and fresh batch of 500 on Shop Small Saturday at 10 am.
That's right, you'll have a chance to enter to win $250 (yep, two-fifty) in store credit. The ballot box will be open Friday through Sunday, so make sure to stop in at the very least and enter! Free money!

We've also got tons of new prize packs put together with all kinds of great promo goodies. You'll be able to enter to win those in store all weekend. Additionally, we've got loads of new ticket giveaways, including chances to see Chvrches, Kurt Vile, Trampled By Turtles, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and MORE. You know we always got the ticket hookup. 

While the RSD Black Friday exclusives alone are enough reason to get out of bed, it's also a traditional new release Friday, with plenty of cool non-exclusive releases to peruse. For starters, we'll have Mac Miller's anticipated final album Swimming available on wax, as well as new music from Hippo Campus. The expanded soundtrack to the 1984 David Byrne film True Stories (different and more loaded than the Heads' studio album of the same name) and the New Kids on the Block Christmas album top it all off. These releases will be in their usual spots on the browsers and back wall!

Of course, after Black Friday comes Shop Small Saturday, and there are a couple cool special releases out that day only, as well, including limited records from the likes of Ben Folds and Ingrid Michaelson (not to mention tote bags and other great giveaways with purchase!)

Now, for a few store policies for Black Friday: 

First, you can have as many individual exclusive titles you want on Friday morning, but you will be limited to one copy of each title. No doubles, triples, etc. This goes for RSD exclusives only.

Secondly, a note on gift cards: we truly appreciate your loyalty and continued support of the store. Since Black Friday is such a busy day, we are not able to redeem gift cards on Black Friday Thanks for your support, and we look forward to seeing see you when you cash-in those GC’s in the future. 

Now, take another look over the list and make a game plan. We'll see you bright and early Friday!

Thanks and thanks and thanks,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round Up 11/16 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round Up 11/16 at Mills Record Company

New Releases 16 November 2018 

The Good, The Bad & The Queen - Merrie Land - Studio 13
This week sees the release of Merrie Land, the second album from The Good, The Bad & The Queen, a band comprising of Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen and Simon Tong. The album sees the band’s focus move beyond London with a beautiful and hopeful paean to the Britain of today - an inclusive Britain - and the possibilities of the future. In the band’s own words, Merrie Land is a ten song lament of Anglo-Saxosentialism marking the reluctant end of a relationship, and about picking up the pieces and seeing what can be salvaged. The band set a beautifully muted palette and lustrous finish to bring out a mood that is bruised yet unapologetically defiant and optimistic, and carries the underlying message: we will survive. In times of metaphysical trauma, the people need to forge ahead and wear armour. Here it is, set to the mood music of a nation about to be broken yet undefeated.

Mumford & Sons - Delta - Glassnote
Mumford & Sons emphatic return is spearheaded with the inspiring new single, "Guiding Light".  Their fourth album, Delta, was produced by Paul Epworth.

Smashing Pumpkins - Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / No Past. No Future. No Sun. - Napalm
In June of 2018, The Smashing Pumpkins released their new single “Solara” ahead of their monumental Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour. The track was the first song in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin, alongside longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder and offered the first glimpse of music from the newly reformed lineup. In September of 2018, the band formally announced their forthcoming 10th studio album Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / No Past. No Future. No Sun. and shared its second single “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)”. Recorded at Shangri La Studios with legendary producer Rick Rubin, LP is out this week via Martha’s Music under license to Napalm Records. With over 30 million albums sold to date, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains one of the most influential bands in history.

Chris Cornell - Chris Cornell

Chris Cornell - Chris CornellChris Cornell - Chris CornellChris Cornell - Chris Cornell - UME
First ever complete retrospective of Chris Cornell’s career covering Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and his solo works. The centerpiece to the collection is the newly discovered, unreleased track “When Bad Does Good” found in Chris’ personal audio archive which was performed, recorded and mixed by Chris himself.  Creative Director for the project is Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog) who oversaw the project design including the 32-page booklet with unreleased photos. Liner note contributions by Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, Tom Morello, Mike McCready and Brendan O’Brien.  A limited edition, custom die-cut o-card features Seattle’s tree-line graphics on the front and other various cities Chris lived in throughout his life on the back.  Additional highlights of tracks include the unreleased performance from SiriusXM of the Prince classic “Nothing Compares 2 U,” Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” Audioslave’s “Like A Stone” and the theme song to the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale “You Know My Name.”

Anderson .Paak - Oxnard - 12 Tone Music
Anderson .Paak's new album, Oxnard, is a nod to the Southern California city where Anderson grew up. It is the Grammy-nominated artist’s 3rd studio album and the first to be released on Dr. Dre’s label Aftermath Entertainment. Oxnard will include his latest single, “Tints” featuring Kendrick Lamar along with album features from J. Cole, Pusha T and many more. Earlier this year, Anderson .Paak shared with Rolling Stone that "… this is the album [he] dreamed of making in high school, when [he] was listening to [Jay-Z]'s The Blueprint, The Game's The Documentary, and [Kanye West's] The College Dropout."

Chris Robinson Brotherhood - Betty's Midwestern Magick Blends - Silver Arrow Records
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood is indisputably one of the hardest working bands in rock ’n’ roll. 2018 marks the fourth year in a row that they’ll play over 200 shows across the U.S. and Europe. Through that prolific touring schedule, the band has emerged a razor sharp, riveting live unit. Each evening The CRB plays two sets of music with a dynamic, ever-changing setlist. Presenting original material stretching across six studio albums, plus a repertoire of covers that runs from Slim Harpo to Bob Dylan and beyond, it’s only fitting that the band would document this output. They’ve done exactly that through a series of live recordings dubbed, ‘Betty’s Blends’—taking its moniker from legendary Grateful Dead archivist and recording engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson who is called upon to capture The CRB’s performances in multi-dimensional, audio-verite. ‘Betty's Midwestern Magick Blends’ is the fourth volume from the acclaimed series, gathering highlights from three shows in Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago in October 2016. Available as a vinyl exclusive, 3-LP set with only 3500 copies released, the collection finds The CRB in peak form delivering highlights like “New Cannonball Rag,” “Forever As The Moon” and “Shadow Cosmos,” as well as adapting two from The Rolling Stones: “Down Home Girl” and “Let It Bleed” and the seldom played fan favorite, Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride.” If the past is any indication, this will sell out fast, while quickly becoming much sought-after, so fans are advised to grab one quick. 

Brian Newman - Showboat

Brian Newman - ShowboatBrian Newman - ShowboatBrian Newman - Showboat - Verve
Brian Newman, trumpeter, crooner and long-time bandleader for superstar Lady Gaga, has signed to Verve Records and will be releasing his debut solo album, Showboat, this week. A true talent on trumpet, this release incorporates creative takes on rock classics as well as jazz standards. Brian has toured with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga and has collaborated with Jose Feliciano and Dierks Bentley. He's performed on Boardwalk Empire, NBC's Christmas in Rockefeller Center, MTV's Video Music Awards, The Tonight Show, Watch What Happens Live, Marc Jacobs fashion shows and in a national H&M commercial.

Glen Campbell - Glen Sings For The King

Glen Campbell - Glen Sings For The KingGlen Campbell - Glen Sings For The KingGlen Campbell - Glen Sings For The King - Capitol
The lost album from Glen Campbell, Glen Sings For The King contains eighteen recently unearthed and restored studio recordings from 1965-1967 that casts new light on the influence that Campbell had on America’s greatest rock and roll star, Elvis Presley. Before his breakthrough single “Gentle On My Mind” Campbell was recording songs for legendary songwriter Ben Weisman, who wrote an unmatched 57 songs recorded by Elvis Presley. Campbell had an uncanny knack to sings in Elvis’s key and thirteen of these tracks went on to be recorded and released by Presley. The collection highlights Campbell’s incredible musicianship and contains “We Call on Him” a previously unreleased duet fused from the voices of Presley and Campbell.

11/16 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

We've been busy this week unpacking a ton of records for Black Friday (which, by the way, is NEXT FRIDAY). I'll lay out all the specifics for that day below, but first we got plenty of exciting new releases out this week to talk about. 

It's a big week for reissues, starting with some can't-miss Kate Bush remasters. Her first seven albums will be available, and you've got multiple options for snatching em up. We've got individual pressings as well as two box sets. Two more box sets still to come! There's also a grip of Brian Eno reissues dropping this week,, with emphasis on his transition to primarily ambient work. Discreet Music, Ambient 1: Music for Airports, and Ambient 4: On Land  are all back on remastered vinyl for the first time in forever. Bet you can't pick just one. 

We'll also have a career-spanning Chris Cornell set, featuring work ranging from early Soundgarden days through his later solo releases. To top it off, Primus is reissuing classics Pork Soda and Brown Album. 

We'll also have new music from Mumford & Sons, Smashing Pumpkins, and the vinyl pressing of Drake's 2018 release Scorpio. There's plenty of heat to keep you warm through Thanksgiving and hold you over until Black Friday. Check the full list below!

Speaking of Black Friday, here are the the full details, in user-friendly bullet-point format:

  • We open at 7 AM. Exclusives are first come, first served.
  • Coffee and donuts provided for the early birds.
  • Swag bags full of bonus goodies while supplies last.
  • All the RSD exclusives you can handle
  • FRESH used new arrivals put out throughout the day. (Follow us on social media for reveals!)
  • Pop-up sales! (Really, social media is the only way you'll know about these)

I'm sure you've had a chance to check out the list by now, but here's the link anyway. Study up.

Looking ahead to a post-Black Friday world, we're super excited to welcome JHS Pedals into the shop on Saturday, December 1st at 4 pm, for a workshop on recreating classic guitar tones. Guitar nerds rejoice, but this is also for music lovers in general. Messenger will be serving up coffee. Don't miss it! 

We've still got plenty of killer giveaways going on in the shop right now, too, including prize packs from Captured Tracks Records, Metallica, Fleet Foxes, and more. Drop your name in for a chance at some limited edition swag.

Look out later this week for a special edition newsletter with even more info on Black Friday festivities and a final stock list! 

Forever thankful,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round-Up 11/9 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round-Up 11/9 at Mills Record Company

New Releases 09 November 2018


boygenius - EP

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus formed boygenius after booking a tour together, but the trio had subconsciously been in the works for longer than that. Through a series of tours and performances together, and chance encounters that led to friendships – including Bridgers’ and Dacus’ first in-person meeting backstage at a Philadelphia festival, greenroom hangouts that felt instantly comfortable and compatible, a couple of long email chains and even a secret handshake between Baker and Dacus – the lyrically and musically arresting singer-songwriters and kindred spirits got to know each other on their own terms. 


Cult Leader - A Patient Man (Indie Exclusive Colored Vinyl)

Cult Leader is a chaotic band from Salt Lake City, Utah. “A Patient Man” was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge, Nails, High On Fire). From the first hits of opener “I Am Healed” Cult Leader take listeners on a sonic rollercoaster ride. Much of the album follows this blueprint. Songs like “Curse of Satisfaction”, “Craft of Mourning”, and “Share My Pain” are driven by a weave work of unorthodox metallic riffing and fueled by hyper-aggressive percussion. While the tech- nical proficiency is impressive, it’s in their use of dynamics where they truly shine. The album contains four beautifully brooding epics; “To: Achlys”, “A World of Joy”, title track “A Patient Man”, and “The Broken Right Hand of God”. Each one of them carries a maturation and sense of melody that few “extreme” bands have within their arsenal. Proving that aggressive music still has much to offer the world in terms of originality, creativity, and emotion.


Stereolab - The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music (Clear Vinyl)

Stereolab formed in London in 1990, and released 13 studio albums, 15 eps and numerous singles. Simon Reynolds commented in Rolling Stone that the group’s early records form “an endlessly seductive body of work that sounds always the same, always different.” Their sound was a mix of new and old...dubbed “post-rock”, they used vintage keyboards, and the vocals were in English and French. They are often noted as being one of the most influential and original bands of the 90s. Theirs is a rich, overflowing palette, readily able to blur the gulf between Os Mutantes and the BBC Radiophonic Orchestra; merge Krzysztof Komeda with the Velvet Underground, Francoise Hardy with Neu! and Burt Bacharach with Esquivel. A deluxe blend, in other words, with ingredients plucked assiduously from pop’s coolest outposts: 50’s lounge, Rive Gauche chanson, Brazilian tropicalia, North American art rock, East European film music, Krautrock. hi-fi test recordings, mood music and more. Somehow they distill these apparently incongruent components into an ageless exotica that is all their own.

Muse - Simulation Theory 
Simulation Theory was produced by Muse, along with producers Rich Costey, Mike Elizondo, Shellback and Timbaland. Each of the album's songs will be accompanied by a video.


The Beatles - The Beatles (The White Album): Anniversary Edition

The Beatles - The Beatles (The White Album): Anniversary EditionThe Beatles - The Beatles (The White Album): Anniversary EditionThe Beatles - The Beatles (The White Album): Anniversary Edition 
In November 1968, millions of double LPs were shipped to record stores worldwide ahead of that tumultuous year’s most anticipated music event: the November 22nd release of The Beatles (soon to be better known as ‘The White Album’). With their ninth studio album, The Beatles took the world on a whole new trip, side one blasting off with the exhilarating rush of a screaming jet escorting Paul McCartney’s punchy, exuberant vocals on “Back In The U.S.S.R.” “Dear Prudence” came next, John Lennon warmly beckoning his friend and all of us to “look around.” George Harrison imparted timeless wisdom in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” singing, “With every mistake we must surely be learning.” Ringo Starr’s “Don’t Pass Me By” marked his first solo songwriting credit on a Beatles album. For 50 years, ‘The White Album’ has invited its listeners to venture forth and explore the breadth and ambition of its music, delighting and inspiring each new generation in turn. This week, The Beatles release a suite of lavishly presented ‘White Album’ packages (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe). The album’s 30 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio, joined by 27 early acoustic demos and 50 session takes, most of which are previously unreleased in any form.

The Revivalists - Take Good CareThe Revivalists - Take Good CareThe Revivalists - Take Good Care 
The Revivalists' fourth LP 'Take Good Care' is previewed with the first single 'All My Friends,' a song brimming with confidence that unleashes the bands next chapter. The track which is already Top 3 at AAA and Top 10 at Modern Rock. 'All my Friends' will cross over to Hot AC in early October followed by Top 40. This is just the start! 'You Said it All', 'Oh No' and 'Some People Say' are just a few of the potential chart-toppers in this collection, which was co-produced with Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton) and Andrew Dawson (Kanye, Fun) it's a project showcasing new found depth and craft that mark a band bent on proving they are far more than a band synonymous with a single song.

J Mascis - Elastic Days

J Mascis - Elastic DaysJ Mascis - Elastic DaysJ Mascis - Elastic Days 
Near the end of Reagan's first term, the Western Massachusetts Hardcore scene coughed up an insanely shaped chunk called Dinosaur. Comprised of WMHC vets, the trio was a miasmic tornado of guitar noise, bad attitude and near-subliminal pop-based-shape-shifting. Through their existence, Dinosaur (amended to Dinosaur Jr. for legal reasons) defined a very specific, very aggressive set of oblique song-based responses to what was going on. Their one constant was the scalp-fryingly loud guitar and deeply buried vocals of J Mascis. A couple of years before they ended their reign, J cut a solo album called Martin + Me. Recorded live and acoustic, the record allowed the bones of J's songs to be totally visible for the first time. Fans were surprised to hear how melodically elegant these compositions were, even if J still seemed interested in swallowing some of the words that most folks would have sung. Since then, through the reformation of the original Dinosaur Jr lineup in 2005, J has recorded solo albums now and then. And those album, Sings + Chant for AMMA (2005), Several Shades of Why (2011) and Tied to a Star (2014) had all delivered incredible sets of songs presented with a minimum of bombast and a surfeit of cool. Like its predecessors, Elastic Days was recorded at J's own Bisquiteen studio. Mascis does almost all his own stunts, although Ken Miauri (who also appeared on Tied to a Star) plays keyboards and there are a few guest vocal spots. These include old mates Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion, etc.), as well as the newly added voice of Zoë Randell (Luluc) among others. But the show is mostly J's and J's alone. --Byron Coley

Architects UK - Holy Hell

Architects UK - Holy HellArchitects UK - Holy HellArchitects UK - Holy Hell
Architects UK are a band who’ve never shied away from challenging the world around them. After suffering the loss of co-founder/guitarist Tom Searle to cancer in 2016, the band returned to the road and the studio in 2017 releasing the hit track “Doomsday”, which climbed the Active Rock Radio charts and went on to be one the bands most successful songs. Long lauded as some of modern metal’s most progressive-thinking minds, for the past decade, the quintet have pushed boundaries, redefined genres, and never feared having to question themselves in order for their art to leave its mark on this Earth. ARCHITECTS UK, are a band like few others; The quintet all practice a vegan lifestyle, tour with a consciousness about their footprint on the world, and devote time and energies to environmental causes. Their 8th studio album, Holy Hell is the return to the studio for a band that have come through the grieving process with more drive and determination than ever before. Drummer Dan Searle- Desbiens takes on the helm as lyricist and writes music with his bandmates vocalist Sam Carter, guitarist Adam Christianson, bassist Alex Dean and new guitarist Josh Middleton. For the follow-up to their 2016 album All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us , ARCHITECTS UK recorded at Middle Farm Studios in Devon, UK with bandmates Dan Searle Desbiens and Josh Middleton behind the board as producers.

11/9 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

11/9 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

Whether we like it or not, looks like KC is gearing up for the first snow of the season. Instead of scrambling for bread and milk, we suggest a record store run to prep. We've got a heavy dose of new music to check out this week. 

The highlight this week has to be a posthumous release from the great Charles Bradley, who passed away just over a year ago. Black Velvetcompiles previously unheard tracks from Charles' recording career, including crucial covers of Nirvana and Neil Young classics. No one sang like Charles. If you need an introduction, go here now.

If you're the kind of person who's already diving headlong into the Christmas spirit, you'll be happy to know that Sufjan Stevens is releasing a box set of Christmas songs. The box collects all five of his Songs for Christmas EPs on vinyl for the first time! Spread the cheer.

We've also got the debut release from supergroup BOYGENIUS. This band brings together Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, and Lucy Dacus, making for a collaboration between three of the craftiest and smartest songwriters of the day. If you thought they wrote heart-wrenching songs on their own, wait'll you hear em together!

New music from J. Mascis, Muse, and the ever-terrifying Cult Leader top off a stellar slate of releases, but there's even more! Check out the full list below and come get what you need. 

Of course, it wouldn't be a November newsletter if we didn't mention BLACK FRIDAY, which is now a mere THREE WEEKS out. Have you studied the list? Do you know what you're after? Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on that Sweetheart of the Rodeo legacy edition set.

We JUST put out a new ticket giveaway for a chance to see Oliver Coates and Thom Yorke this December. Also, still got chances to win tix for both All Them Witches and Underoath, as well as various prize packs featuring Metallica, Suspiria, and David Bowie. 

THIS SATURDAY we're excited to be hosting a free, all-ages release party for High Dive Records artists THOSE FAR OUT ARROWS. You can buy their new record in store now (on LP and cassette), or pick it up this weekend. Arc Flash will be kicking off the night. Music starts at six. Hope to see you there.

Keep warm,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round-Up 11/2 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round-Up 11/2 at Mills Record Company

New Releases 02 November 2018

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Oddments + 3 Other Limited Reissues (Eyes Like The Sky, 12 Bar Bruise & Float Along)

The 4th studio album by KG&TLW released in 2014 featuring a collection of odd songs recorded between 2007-2014. Originally limited to 500 copies. Pyschedelic rock/pop.
Re-designed Gatefold of Original Art by Jason Galea. Grimace Purple-Colored Vinyl


Metallica - ...And Justice For All: Remastered - Blackened Recordings
Remastered edition of ...And Justice For All: Remastered.  Remastered by Reuben Cohen at Lurssen Mastering, Los Angeles, CA. Available on CD, 3CD, 2LP and Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set.


The Prodigy - No Tourists - BMG
The original electronic music trailblazers -The Prodigy- are back with some of their fiercest ever tunes. ‘No Tourists’, has been written, produced and mixed over the last year by Liam Howlett in his studio in London’s Kings Cross. Though this is – Liam notes – “very much a band album”. Maxim and Keef Flint are very much present and correct, each supplying their legendary vocal skills on this, the Essex machine’s seventh studio record. Yes, there are one or two collaborators, but fundamentally this is the sound of the central Prodigy three, bringing their riotous sound to audiences old and new, two decades since they changed the face and sound of electronic music with epochal album ‘The Fat Of The Land’. Expanding on the general shape of the project, Liam says: “this album is equally aggressive as the last records – but in a different way." A musician, songwriter and studio maestro, Howlett is as rigorous and righteously Up For It as he was when he formed his 28-years-young band. He explains that, as ever, the new songs “are built to play live. That’s the one thing that brings everything together. I couldn’t write this music unless it has that outlet on stage. That helps write the music. This is what I do it for: the live thing. And until we feel like we can’t do it, or the buzz goes, we won’t stop." It’s that sense of do-or-die commitment that is reflected in the album title. “To us, ‘No Tourists’ is ultimately about escapism and the want and need to be derailed. Don’t be a tourist - there is always more danger and excitement to be found if you stray from the set path.”


Opeth - Garden of the Titans (Opeth Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre) - Nuclear Blast America
Since the early 90s Sweden’s Opeth have stretched the boundaries of heavy music. From the progressive death metal the band began with on classics like “Orchid” and “My Arms, Your Hearse” to the records like “Blackwater Park” and the band’s recent record, 2016’s “Sorceress”, Opeth has continually invited their growing audience along with them as they grew into the musically respected band they are today. Filmed and recorded in 2017 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside of Denver, “Garden of the Titans (Opeth Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre)” is a 2-CD/BLU-RAY + DVD release (along with several vinyl color formats) consisting of tracks spanning the band’s nearly 30 year career.

JD McPherson - Socks

JD McPherson - SocksJD McPherson - SocksJD McPherson - Socks - New West Records
JD McPherson presents A Christmas Album, Socks. Featuring 11 original tracks written by JD McPherson and his friends. SOCKS is an album of Holidays songs sure to be standards while you are decorating the tree. Come get warm by the fire with songs such as , "All The Gifts I Need" and "Every Single Christmas." Or, burn the cookies to "SOCKS" and "Ugly Christmas Sweater." There is something for everyone on this record to enjoy whether you are in the Christmas spirit or if you just wanna say, "Bah Humbug".

Rodney Crowell - Christmas Everywhere

Rodney Crowell - Christmas EverywhereRodney Crowell - Christmas EverywhereRodney Crowell - Christmas Everywhere - New West Records
My childhood memories of Christmas aren't warm and fuzzy. The holidays were more of a nuisance for my parents than cause for celebration. This is not to say that on behalf of their only child they didn't give the season a halfhearted try. There were Christmases when I found under the tree an electric football set, a Daisy pump air-rifle and a basketball goal that never got nailed up. But, there were also mornings when apples, oranges, hickory nuts and a hammer signified that year's bounty. Which is to say that Christmas in our household was mostly a wait-and-see proposition. I was finally ready to record an album of original Christmas songs. With Dan Knobler producing and some very gifted musicians and vocalists lending their talents, the making of the album Christmas Everywhere ranks as some of the most enjoyable recording sessions I've ever experienced. The record was close to being finished when it occurred to me that to set the tone for the albums mostly irreverent subtext, I needed to compose a lyrical prelude. In honor of Clement Moore, who wrote the poem we all know as, 'The Night Before Christmas,' I came up with a short piece called 'Clement's Lament (We'll See You in The Mall)'. Tania Hancheroff and Kim Keyes stopped by the studio and performed the tune with Jordan Lehning's orchestral backing and the album was pronounced complete. Seasons Cheer, Rodney Crowell

New Release Round-Up 10/26 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round-Up 10/26 at Mills Record Company

New Releases 26 October 2018

Thom Yorke - Suspiria (Music For The Luca Guadagnino Film) Pink Vinyl

Original score music from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, including 5 original songs, soundtracking the forthcoming remake of Dario Argento’s cult classic “Suspiria.” The Luca Guadagnino directed film stars Dakota Johnson & Tilda Swinton. A beautiful haunting soundtrack to accompany your halloween weekend!

Ariana Grande - Sweetner 

"Sweetener, Grande’s first album since the 2017 bombing at her Manchester concert, feels more honest and distinct than any of her past work. Perhaps because tragedy has a way of revealing our true selves, the 25-year-old star finally allows herself to just take things as they come. She doesn’t force the heart-wrenching emotion of it all into tearful ballads and message-heavy anthems, but instead lets the low-key joy of the title track radiate across the album. The best parts of Sweetener have her looking for hope and stumbling upon the glow of new love." - Pitchfork

Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want (Fog Colored Vinyl)

Some bands love having very ironic names. When a band is called Daughters, listeners might expect: (1) a female-dominated or female-fronted lineup, and (2) an introspective folk-rock or adult alternative approach along the lines of the Indigo Girls, the October Project, or 10,000 Maniacs. But those who have been following Daughters since their official formation in 2001 (or before that when they were As the Sun Sets) know that they aren't a female act and that they don't sound anything like the Indigo Girls, the October Project, or 10,000 Maniacs. Daughters are guys, and they're guys who provide a jagged, dense, highly abrasive dose of noise rock on this self-titled 2010 release. Daughters have been described as everything from mathcore or math metal to alternative metal to grindcore (although this album doesn't sound like Cannibal Corpse or Carcass), but noise rock is the term that best captures Daughters in 2010 -- and make no mistake: this is an extremely noisy album. Daughters thrive on being as noisy as possible, and they love to be as frantic and as nervous as possible. A lot of that nervousness comes from a healthy appreciation of punk; they clearly appreciate punk's high-speed aggression as much as they appreciate metal's heaviness. Combine that frantic, nervous, punk-minded tension with a lot of metallic heaviness, and you have an album that leaves a trail of destruction in its wake.

Spirit Of The Beehive - Hypnic Jerks (Patt's Pick Of The Week!)

As the spirit of the beehive front man Zack Schwartz puts it, Hypnic Jerks sounds like the state between wakefulness and sleep. The Philly quintet's third full length is named after the involuntary muscle spasms that can happen right as someone begins dozing off ... a perfect feeling to compare the album's drowsy-yet- restless character to. Unlike the spiraling momentum of the band's sophomore LP, pleasure suck, the spirit of the beehive takes a more grounded approach here, though the ground it's standing on is equally otherworldly. Dreamy is a fitting adjective, but the ten tracks on Hypnic Jerks never fully slip into the peaceful character of dream-pop. Hypnic Jerks has the quality of an indescribable dream fading from memory as you slowly begin to regain consciousness. Its warped guitar tones, transcendental synths and smattering of eerie audio samples conjure this purgatorial space between reverie and reality. It's an arena where the songs unexpectedly contort themselves and take on different textures, morphing in and out of one another. Once the celestial harmonies, balmy keys and creeping false climax of album closer it's gonna find you roll past, it's clear that the spirit of the beehive has secured a seat at this decade's table of musical visionaries.

Super Unison - Stella (Indie Exclusive Colored Vinyl)

Oakland, CA trio Super Unison features Meghan O’Neil (formerly of PUNCH) on bass and vocals, Kevin DeFranco on guitar, and Justin Renninger (formerly of Snowing) on drums. Formed in 2014, the band released their acclaimed album "Auto" on Deathwish in 2017. Their new album "Stella" was recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Jawbreaker), produced by Don Devore (Ink & Dagger), and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). It is an aggressive and sonically dynamic outpouring of post punk emotion. Though they tackle dark and personal subject matter, they ultimately find a light that cuts through the dark, and a way to get through the loss and loneliness we all face.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - IC-01

While recording Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s latest release, Sex & Food, Ruban Nielson, his longtime collaborator Jacob Portrait and his brother Kody Nielson, found themselves in the Vietnamese city of Hanoi playing and recording with local musicians at Phu Sa Studios. The studio, normally used for traditional Vietnamese music, found the band jamming on sessions dubbed IC-01 Hanoi: exploring the outer edges of the band’s influences in Jazz, Fusion and the avant-garde. The musicians, along with Ruban and Kody’s father, a Jazz musician in his own right, helped lay down the unique textures heard throughout Hanoi. At its core Hanoi is a record of exploration, finding its closest antecedent in Miles Davis’ experimental On The Corner – itself a record full of nods toward avant-garde composers and Jazz outsiders alike. Hanoi finds Ruban amplifying and stretching out on lead guitar, with a blown-out and wandering fuzz tone that slinks throughout the sessions. Kody and Jacob match Ruban’s melodic diversions with aplomb, mining their talents to finding as easy a role in the fusion of funk as they do in the more ambient and abstract tangents on Hanoi.

NOFX - The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us)

'The Greatest Songs Ever Written (by us)' is a chunk of NOFX's impressive career, lopped off into 2 LPs , including a brand-new song specifically written and recorded for this release. NOFX is one of the best loved punk rock bands of all time because they never soul doubt...continually making their legions of fans laugh and think. Twenty years of recording, touring, and being the most successful and sarcastic punk rock band in the independent world have resulted in a twenty-seven song LP that every NOFX fan must have.

Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN Theme (Limited Edition Orange Vinyl)

To celebrate the release of the new Halloween movie scored by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network, Nine Inch Nails) are releasing their reworked version of Carpenter’s iconic Halloween theme as a limited edition 12", alongside Carpenter’s version from his 2017 Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 album. Reznor explains: “I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.” Speaking about the new version, John Carpenter states, “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ version of Halloween does amazing justice to the original. I’m impressed.” The limited edition 12" that brings these two recordings together for the first time is available on black vinyl and indie store-exclusive orange vinyl. It comes out October 19, the same day as the new Halloween film and soundtrack

Happy Halloween week, creeps! We're in the spirit around here, which means we hung up some spooky stuff and have a lot of candy to share. We've also got a lot of cool records coming out. Candy and records, what more could you ask for?

This week, we've got Thom Yorke's new Suspiria soundtrack hitting the shelves. It comes on limited pink vinyl, and sounds as good as it looks. We've also got some big, beautiful posters to giveaway with purchase, while supplies last, so don't wait around.

Other new release highlights this week include new music from artists as diverse as mathcore kings DAUGHTERS and Swedish pop icon ROBYN. as well as reissues from The Kinks and Bauhaus (just in time for Halloween!) Check out the full list of new releases below, and be sure to check out our website for more info on each title!

Speaking of soundtracks, big thanks to everyone who came out to our Halloween party on Friday! Carpenter's updated soundtrack brings the classic score into the 21st century and is the record you need to be playing at any and all Halloween festivities. We've still got a few of those indie exclusive orange vinyl copies in stock, so make sure you get yours before Wednesday! 

It may be sort of short noticed, but we're excited to have the UMKC Improvisational/Media Performance Ensemble here TONIGHT (Thursday) at 7:30. Then, next Friday, we'll be hosting Apocalypse Meow 11, which you can find more info on here.

It's the LAST weekend to enter for a chance to win multiple killer prize packs featuring goods from David Bowie, Rick & Morty, and Deathwish Records. We've also still got a pair of tickets to see Kamasi Washington and Victory on Monday, but Friday will be the LAST day to enter for those. We've also still got tickets to see Jeremy Messersmith (11/10), All Them Witches (11/23), and Underoath (11/27). Drop your name in the box for all of em!

We're still running a BOGO sale on our $4.99 CDs (which is most of em!). There's seriously a ton of good stuff still left over there, and we're putting more out all the time. On TOP of that, we're dragging out about ten boxes of used new arrivals this weekend, most of it priced UNDER $10. Clear some time in your schedule to come dig!

10/19 Newsletter & New Release List: Trick Or Treat Edition

10/19 Newsletter & New Release List: Trick Or Treat Edition

We're in the thick of the Halloween season, which means horror movies and, more importantly. horror movie soundtracks. We've got all the spooky sounds you need to give yourself a scare, but there's one we're particularly excited about.

TOMORROW from 6-8 pm we're hosting a scary-as-hell release party for John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN soundtrack. We'll have goody bags with stickers and buttons courtesy of Sacred Bones records, as well as a store-wide trick-or-treat setup. Not only that, but we'll be giving away a copy of the soundtrack on pumpkin orange vinyl (limited to 1,000) as well as the re-imagined version done by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (also on orange vinyl!). Of course, we'll be listening to the record to get in the spirit, and you can certainly purchase your very own on the limited orange wax! We'll have beer for those with a 21+ ID, a photobooth, AND if you wear a costume, we'll get you double-entry on giveaways. Only 25 stores across the country were chosen to participate in this celebration, so we're super lucky to be one of them. More info here!
This week, we've got new releases from rockers Greta Van Fleet, as well as brand new tunes from Alkaline Trio, Cloud Nothings, and the final release from indie rock stalwarts Minus the Bear. We'll also have Jason Isbell's highly anticipated Live from the Ryman LP.

As far as reissues go, the Cranberries' Everybody Else is Doing It, So Why Can't We is getting a 25th anniversary treatment, and local emo icons The Get Up Kids will be re-upping some of their classic records including 2002's On a Wire and their fantastic covers record, Eudora. Check out the fill list below and on our website for info on all the great releases hitting the floor this week!

Keep in mind that, on Saturday, we'll have Oklahoman indie-folk act Desi and Cody here to serenade us. Music will start around six, and as always, the show will be free and all ages! More info on that event here

You've also still got a chance to win killer prize packs featuring goods from David Bowie, Rick & Morty, Deathwish Records, and Disturbed. We've got tickets to see Jeremy Messersmith (Riot Room 11/10) and Kamasi Washington (with Visions, the Truman 10/29), so don't pass up the opportunity to win those, either!

See you then,
Dylan, Judy, and the Team

New Release Round Up 10/19/18 at Mills Record Company

Halloween - O.S.T (Pumpkin Orange Vinyl)

When the new Halloween movie hits theaters in October 2018, it will have the distinction of being the first film in the series with creator John Carpenter’s direct involvement since 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Carpenter serves on the new David Gordon Green-directed installment as an executive producer, a creative consultant, and, thrillingly, as a soundtrack composer, alongside his collaborators from his three recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978, when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green’s film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape’s knife. The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter’s famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved.

“We wanted to honor the original Halloween soundtrack in terms of the sounds we used,” Davies explained. “We used a lot of the Dave Smith OB-6, bowed guitar, Roland Juno, Korg, Roli, Moog, Roland System 1, Roland System 8, different guitar pedals, mellotron, and piano.”

Unlike the Lost Themes albums, where the composers wrote the soundtracks for imaginary movies, Halloween saw the Carpenters and Davies collaborating on music set to images for the first time. Though it marked a significant change from their previous creative process, the trio thrived under the constraints and tight deadlines that film scoring work demands.

“Being limited by the length of time in scoring the sequence, we focused on the director’s tempo, timing, and vision,” Davies said. “He would tell us what he had in mind, how long the cue should be, what emotion he wanted, and we would take it from there. It’s only the three of us, there is no elaborate system. We wrote, performed, and orchestrated everything.

For John Carpenter, who reunited on the new film with original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis, composing the score felt like a homecoming. Not only had he not worked on a Halloween movie in 35 years, he hadn’t composed a soundtrack since his 2001 sci-fi thriller Ghosts of Mars.

“It was great,” Carpenter said of the experience. “It was transforming. It was not a movie I directed, so I had a lot of freedom in creating the score and getting into the director's head. I was proud to serve David Gordon Green’s vision.”

For Cody Carpenter, John’s son, and Davies, his godson, it was surreal to work on something that means so much to generations of fans, and that they grew up around.

“It was an honor for us to be involved, and we are really happy to be a part of something that so many people are anticipating and excited about,” Davies said. “Working together with both the director of the new Halloween and the creator of the original Halloween was really a fantastic experience.”

Minus The Bear - Fair Enough (Baby Pink Vinyl & Coke Bottle Green both available!)

Minus the Bear is a product of the first two decades of this century. From their first show in 2001 to their impending dissolution at the end of 2018, the Seattle band thrived on the musical awakening in the era of the mp3, the internet, poptimism, and the crosspollinations generated from an expanded consciousness of new music forms. With their final EP, Fair Enough, Minus the Bear closes the book on their hybrid of art-rock, indie pop, and warehouse party appeal. The opening track “Fair Enough” went through a variety of permutations before the band found new meaning in its lyrical lament of lost passions and finding “the exact moment we turned it off”. The other songs of Fair Enough are a continuation and culmination of Minus the Bear’s diverse sounds. The up-tempo drumbeats, lush electronics, and nimble guitar work that initially set them apart are on full display during “Viaduct”. “Dinosaur” has the groove of early hits of “Fine + 2 PTS”, but crafted with the understated Steely Dan-eque delivery of their more current slow jams. The EP closes with a nod to their ongoing remix collaborations, this time with a rave-up reinvention of “Invisible” by Sombear.

Buxton - Stay Out Late

Buxton - Stay Out LateBuxton - Stay Out LateBuxton - Stay Out Late - New West Records
Stay Out Late is ultimately, the end result of understanding who we are, and more importantly, who we are not. This will be our 15th year as a band, and our 5th record overall. In the years preceding the making of this record, we all had to define what it meant for us to be happy making music. There are certain mechanisms and tropes we all fall into as a result. And as hard as we may try to emulate what we consider to be higher art, or rather, classic music; we always end up with a Buxton record. Sergio couldn't write for almost 2 years after 'Half A Native'. The answers to "why" had run dry. We all saw each other, hung out and everything was like normal. I can't really pinpoint the moment it all made sense again. The question had suddenly changed to "why not" and we were back in the studio making demos. There was a lurking sense that nobody would ever hear these songs, and that lead to a sort of creativity I'm not sure we'd really experienced before. All ideas were on the table, and more importantly they stayed on the table. There are a handful of truly great masterpieces and the attempt of achieving that is one of the most daunting and exhausting pursuits any artist can take on. In the van we're constantly educating ourselves and finding new and in many cases old points of inspiration. Whether it be Mark Hollis, HC McEntire, Mickey Newbury or rediscovering the genius of Bette Midler, we find ourselves at the mercy of our own limitations of expression. Yet somehow in our most vulnerable project, we're simultaneously the most comfortable in our skin as we've ever been. The core of this record is about being in it for the long haul, looking back, and being able to accept it all.  We can only hope that the listener can in some way share and make tangible the joy that went into making this record.

New Release Round Up 10/12/18 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round Up 10/12/18 at Mills Record Company



New Releases 12 October 2018


Kurt Vile - Bottle It In (Indie Exclusive)

Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying Bottle It In, which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips. Every song, whether it’s a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos. If Vile has become something of a rock guitar god—a mantle he would dismiss out of humility but also out of a desire to keep getting better, to continue absorbing new music, new sounds, new ideas—it’s due to his precise, witty playing style, which turns every riff and rhythm into points on a map and takes the scenic route from one to the next. Using past albums as points of departure, Bottle It In heads off in new directions, pushing at the edges of the map into unexplored territory: Here be monster jams. These songs show an artist who is still evolving and growing: a songwriter who, like his hero John Prine, can make you laugh and break your heart, often in the same line, as well as a vocalist who essentially rewrites those songs whenever he sings them in his wise, laconic jive-talkin’ drawl. He revels in the minutiae of the music—not simply incorporating new instruments but emphasizing how they interact with his guitar and voice, how the glockenspiel evokes cirrocumulus clouds on “Hysteria,” how Kim Gordon’s “acoustic guitar distortion” (her term) engulfs everything at the end of “Mutinies,” how the banjo curls around his guitar lines and backing vocals from Lucius to lend a high-lonesome aura to “Come Again.” These journeys took Vile more than two years to navigate, during which time he toured behind his breakout 2015 album b’lieve I’m goin’ down, recorded a duets album with Australian singer-songwriter-guitarist Courtney Barnett, opened for Neil Young in front of 90,000 people in Quebec, famously became a clue on Jeopardy, hung out with friends, took vacations with his wife and daughters. “I’ve been bouncing around a lot and recording all over. My family would meet me in the middle of America, and we’d go on a road trip somewhere. I would record in between all that stuff.” As Vile prepares for another round of lengthy tours and countless shows, these songs should prove good company, reminders of the love and responsibility he has toward those he leaves at home and those he meets along the way. That makes the sentiments resonate more strongly and lends Bottle It In an emotional weight. “It’s like that moment on the airplane,” Vile says, “when you’re on your way somewhere and you have that burst of panic. When you’re terrified of dying, that’s when you want people to know you love them.” “Impeccably recorded and mixed songs that shuffle bits of folk, new wave, or country in the mix but are always squarely down-the-middle rock.” Mark Richardson, Pitchfork “Vile’s self-awareness is as appealing as his melodies, and he’s stoked a reputation as a bit of a slacker maharishi—at the very least, a look inside Vile’s head might make you think a bit more deeply about what’s going on in your own.” The New Yorker

St. Vincent - MassEducation

David Bowie - Loving The Alien (1983-1988)

David Bowie: 4. Loving The Alien (1983-1988) is the fourth boxed set spanning his career from 1969 and the follow-up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed David Bowie: 1. Five Years (1969 – 1973), David Bowie: 2. Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) and David Bowie: 3. A New Career In A New Town (1977 – 1982). David Bowie: 4. Loving The Alien (1983-1988) features material officially released by David Bowie between 1983 and 1988 including newly remastered studio albums ‘Let’s Dance’ (remaster overseen by Nile Rodgers), ‘Tonight’ (remaster overseen by Hugh Padgham) and ‘Never Let Me Down’, the live albums ‘Serious Moonlight’ from 1983 (previously unreleased) and ‘Glass Spider’ from 1987, and the exclusive new compilation ‘RE:CALL 4’ featuring single versions and edits, soundtrack music and non-album B-sides. Also included exclusively is a brand 2018 version of the 1987 album ‘Never Let Me Down’ co-produced and mixed by Mario McNulty. David had already discussed this in 2008 with Mario McNulty so ‘Never Let Me Down (2018)’ is a much darker album with additional production by Mario and new live drums by Sterling Campbell, new guitars by Reeve Gabrels and David Torn plus a string quartet. The album will also feature new artwork with photography from the original session by Greg Gorman. The album ‘Dance’ was scheduled for 1985 but was never released and never will be, however we have used the artwork for ‘Dance’ for this set for an album which contains 12 original extended remixes from across the three studio albums plus ‘Underground’.



Tom Morello - The Atlas Underground

Tom Morello is living proof of the transformative power of rock’n’roll. As the co-founder of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and Prophets Of Rage, and through collaborations with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Johnny Cash, he has continually pushed the limits of what one man can do with six strings. But on his latest album The Atlas Underground, he’s transformed his sound into something even he could not have anticipated, blending Marshall stack riff-rock with the digital wizardry of EDM and hip-hop to create the most ambitious artistic effort of his storied career. The Atlas Underground includes collaborations with Marcus Mumford, Portugal. The Man, the Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and GZA, Vic Mensa, K.Flay, Big Boi, Gary Clark Jr., Pretty Lights, Killer Mike and Whethan among others. “The riffs and the beats led the way, but the extraordinary talents of the collaborators set my creativity into uncharted territory,” says Morello of the project, which will be released by Mom + Pop Music.



Elvis Costello & The Imposters - Look Now

Recorded in Hollywood, New York City and Vancouver, British Columbia, 'Look Now' is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. It's the first album Costello has made with The Imposters since the 2008 release of 'Momofuku' and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 Roots collaboration, 'Wise Up Ghost'. 'Look Now' is an outstanding 12-strong addition to his song catalogue. Most of the titles were written solely by Elvis Costello although, 'Don't Look Now' and 'Photographs Can Lie' were co-written with Burt Bacharach, who makes a guest appearance, leading The Imposters from the piano for those two ballads. The album was co-produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys - the Latin Grammy Producer of the Year for 2007 and 2015, whose love and understanding of music spans both hemispheres.

 

The Steeldrivers - Reckless

Available for the first time on vinyl, the SteelDrivers’ GRAMMY-nominated sophomore record, Reckless, picks up where their eponymous debut left off. Originally released in 2010, it’s the Nashville group’s last album with singer/songwriter Chris Stapleton at the helm, who left the band later that same year to pursue his solo career. With Reckless, the SteelDrivers continue to push the boundaries of bluegrass incorporating experimental aspects from other genres, including blues and Southern soul.

Atreyu - In Our Wake

After a 2 year tour cycle for Long Live, Atreyu regrouped in Southern California for what would become offering number seven, In Our Wakereuniting with producer John Feldmann who famously helmed Lead Sails Paper Anchor.

New Release Round Up 10/5/18 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round Up 10/5/18 at Mills Record Company



New Releases 05 October 2018

Blood Orange - Negro Swan

Producer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and vocalist Devonte Hynes returns with his fourth album as Blood Orange, Negro Swan. Raised in England, Hynes started out as a teenage punk in the UK band Test Icicles before releasing two orchestral acoustic pop records as Lightspeed Champion. In 2011, he released Coastal Grooves, the first of three solo albums under the moniker Blood Orange. His last album, Freetown Sound, was released to critical acclaim in 2016, and saw Hynes defined as one of the foremost musical voices of his time, receiving comparisons to the likes of Kendrick Lamar and D’Angelo for his own searing and soothing personal document of life as a black man in America. He has collaborated with Solange Knowles, FKA Twigs, and many other artists, and was recently one of four artists invited to the Kennedy Center to perform alongside Philip Glass. In addition to his production work, he scored the film Palo Alto, directed by Gia Coppola and starring James Franco. Hynes’ newest album, Negro Swan, was written and produced by Hynes. Says Hynes: “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.”

Twenty One Pilots - Trench

Twenty One Pilots shook the world with the release of their 2015 LP BLURRYFACE, an album that would go on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide and earn the band their first ever GRAMMY® Award as they shattered longstanding chart records, and captivated audiences worldwide on sold-out arena runs and at international festivals. Now three years later, the duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have returned to write the next chapter of their story with TRENCH, the band's highly anticipated new studio album. TRENCH finds Twenty One Pilots fearlessly reimagining the possibilities of their music through the same candid expression and genuine identity that helped to cement their place as one of the largest bands in the world.

Coheed & Cambria - The Unheavenly Creatures

Coheed and Cambria have distinguished themselves as among the most gifted storytellers in rock. While the most conceptually abstruse Coheed records have always had a foundation in reality,The Color Before the Sunmarks the first time Sanchez is exposing his raw feelings, narrated from his own perspective. His own story is told through big, bright, driving, colorful songs that beam like power-pop, crunch like vintage '90s emocore and float with the expansive feel of space-rock.

Molly Burch - First Flower

Molly Burch burst onto the music scene in 2017 with her debut Please Be Mine – a ten-track ode to unrequited romance written after studying Jazz Vocal Performance in Asheville, NC – and earned immediate praise from critics for her smoky, effortless vocals and bleeding-heart lyrics. Following a year of touring all over North America, Europe and the UK alongside the likes of Ought, Alex Cameron, Grizzly Bear and Courtney Barnett amongst others, Burch then returned to Texas to decompress. Finding herself suddenly devoid of stimulation and with nothing but time on her hands, she began anew, bouncing ideas off her bandmate and boyfriend Dailey Toliver – who contributed guitar parts and orchestration suggestions – and, slowly, an album took shape; soon after, First Flower became real.

A walk-through Burch’s most intimate thoughts – broken friendships, sibling relationships, and overwhelming anxiety – First Flower is a bright, beautiful album peppered with moments of triumph with Burch’s voice as strong and dexterous as ever. Opening track “Candy” is a swinging, playful hit, while “Wild” deals with pushing away fear. Title track “First Flower” is classic Burch, a simple love song that makes your skin raise with goosebumps when she breaks into the chorus. But the album’s true stand-out is “To The Boys”, a courageous, sassy fuck-you to her own self-deprecation where she learns to love all the things she hated about herself. “I don’t need to scream to get my point across/I don’t need to yell to know that I’m the boss,” she coos over a sparse guitar riff.

First Flower is a shapely sonic stage to let Burch shine on. The composition and production carefully constructed to compliment and not over power.

Tricky - Maxinquaye 

180g vinyl re-press of Tricky’s debut solo record – Maxinquaye. After signing a contract with 4th & Broadway Tricky collaborated with his newly discovered vocalist Martina Topley-Bird who would deliver a new depth and dimension to Tricky’s lyrics. Maxinquaye also features guest vocalists Allison Goldfrapp, Ragga and Mark Stewart. Featuring original artwork.

Cursive - Vitriola

For the first time since Happy Hollow, the new Cursive album reunites Tim Kasher, guitarist/singer Ted Stevens and bassist Matt Maginn with founding drummer Clint Schnase, as well as co-producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Jenny Lewis) at ARC Studios in Omaha. They’re joined by Patrick Newbery on keys and touring mainstay Megan Siebe on cello. Press pickup from album announcement included Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, NPR, SPIN, COS and more. US tour dates 10/18-11/18.

Ron Gallo - Stardust Birthday Party

Ron Gallo - Stardust Birthday PartyRon Gallo - Stardust Birthday PartyRon Gallo - Stardust Birthday Party - New West Records
Stardust Birthday Party is about human evolution. Specifically, one humans evolution: mine, Ron Gallo. That’s the name my parents gave me. Hi. At one point, I was a very lost mid-twenties person living in Philadelphia, in a relationship with someone struggling with mental health issues and crippling heroin addiction. I was asleep. I didn’t know how to handle my life. I was also writing songs for HEAVY META - my “frustrated with humanity” album. I laugh about it all now, but at the time it all felt like an absolute nightmare. It was the perfect doorway to look inside the place I’d been avoiding forever: myself. Stardust Birthday Party is about what is happening underneath all of this life stuff. My path inward. The details of my path are pointless because everyone’s path is different. It is about me sitting with myself for the first time and confronting the big question “WHAT AM I, REALLY?” It’s about the love and compassion for all things that enters when you find out you are nothing and everything. I think at one point I wanted to change the world, but now I know I can only change myself, or rather just strip away everything that is not me to reveal the only thing that’s ever been there. And that’s what this album is about, it’s me dancing while destroying the person I thought I was, and hopefully forever. In the liner notes of John Coltrane’s album A Love Supreme (which we pay tribute to on this album) he wrote: “During the year 1957, I experienced, by the grace of God, a spiritual awakening which was to lead me to a richer, fuller, more productive life. At that time, in gratitude, I humbly asked to be given the means and privilege to make others happy through music.” That’s it. That is the pure essence of creativity. Someone embodying what they have realized about themselves and the world that surrounds them. That is why this album exists. Thank you for letting me share this with you. Ron Gallo.  Also available on Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Birthday Cake Vinyl.

Carrying an emotional vulnerability and honesty that few bands own in today’s music world.

Pixies - Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa: 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (Bronze Vinyl)

30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Pixies’ Debut EP and Album, Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa, includes Bonus 1986 Radio Session Live From The Fallout Shelter. It’s been thirty years since the release of Surfer Rosa – a record made up of rage, religion, gore, incest and superheroes named Tony – a debut album so good that it’s since seen as a masterpiece. A year prior came Come On Pilgrim, an eight-track mini-album released in 1987 which contained cuts culled from their first ever studio session, where they famously recorded seventeen tracks in just three days (in full, this session makes up the band’s much bootlegged and now officially released The Purple Tape). These formative records showed the Pixies to be an alien breed; four oddball outsiders from Boston blending US underground thrash rock, indie surf pop and Spanish-language flamenco with the Biblical mythology of Francis’ childhood. They would go on to record another masterpiece in 1989’s Doolittle but it’s the gruesome glory of Surfer Rosa, and the ruined sexuality of its cover image (a topless flamenco dancer in a crumbling Mexican bar) that set a fresh blueprint for an indie rock dynamism that not only planted the seeds of grunge (Kurt Cobain would admit that he was trying to imitate the record while writing Nevermind) but of much of the best rock music made since. To celebrate this milestone, Pixies are playing five sold-out intimate shows at London’s Roundhouse this October and preceding them is the release of Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa, the thirtieth anniversary edition which contains Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa and Live From The Fallout Shelter, a concert-cum-session that first aired in late-1986 on WJUL in Lowell, MA. “An unparalleled example of rule-smashing innovation in independent music.” Pitchfork “Smack in between hardcore punk and alternative, their secret weapon was leaping from sweet to screaming, driving a spike into Eighties rock.” Rolling Stone “Surfer Rosa quickly cemented itself as a must-have album (and) 30 years on, its aged into timelessness rather than becoming a period piece.” The Quietus

Marrissa Nadler - For My Crimes (Limited Edition "Dove & Crow" Colored Vinyl)

The eighth album from Marissa Nadler, For My Crimes, is the sound of turmoil giving way to truth. The songs stare down the dark realization that love may not be enough to keep two people together through distance and differing needs. By asking these difficult questions about her relationships, Nadler has found a stronger sense of self and a sharper voice as both a songwriter and a vocalist, culminating in her most evocative entry in an already impressive discography. Following the release of 2016’s acclaimed Strangers, Nadler’s relationships were put to the test as she left the Boston area on tour. She wrote throughout 2017 about this tension, and ended up with three times as many songs as she needed. But after reviewing the demos with her co-producers Justin Raisen and Lawrence Rothman, Nadler wrote a flurry of tight but no less intense new songs in the week before arriving at Rothman’s Laurel Canyon studio, House of Lux, in early January. She considered it a challenge to herself, applying new strategies and structures to the craft of “slow music” she’s honed over the last 15 years. From that group of songs came nearly all of the singles on For My Crimes, some of the most indelible of Nadler’s career.

Arethra Franklin - The Atlantic Singles Collection 1967-1970

THE ATLANTIC SINGLES COLLECTION 1967-1970 features singles which Franklin released during her first three years with Atlantic Records.

Pale Waves - My Mind Makes Noises

Pale Waves’s black-clad central songwriting duo, Baron-Gracie and Ciara Doran, are perhaps the apotheosis of the death of musical tribes among digital natives. There are flourishes of pop Cure on the likes of Kiss, which doffs its cap to Just Like Heaven, but most tracks here could grace Taylor Swift’s 1989. Their biggest single, Television Romance, remains monstrously addictive, all glistening 80s pop muscle and deadpan delivery, but there’s plenty to match it, from the crisp synths of Came In Close (which features the killer line: “I knew from the very first time I saw you / You liked crying in your room for something to do”)and theyoung-love rush of Eighteen to Loveless Girl’s dry jabs at an old flame: “You always said I was too cold/ Only with you, though”. They’ll probably be the last, following their US twin band Muna and their labelmates the 1975, to get away with this particular production sound, and 14 tracks stretches the hooks a little thin, but My Mind Makes Noises boasts pop craft to rival big-money production teams, and much better eyeliner to boot.

Ron Gallo - Stardust Birthday Party

Ron Gallo - Stardust Birthday PartyRon Gallo - Stardust Birthday PartyRon Gallo - Stardust Birthday Party - New West Records
Stardust Birthday Party is about human evolution. Specifically, one humans evolution: mine, Ron Gallo. That’s the name my parents gave me. Hi. At one point, I was a very lost mid-twenties person living in Philadelphia, in a relationship with someone struggling with mental health issues and crippling heroin addiction. I was asleep. I didn’t know how to handle my life. I was also writing songs for HEAVY META - my “frustrated with humanity” album. I laugh about it all now, but at the time it all felt like an absolute nightmare. It was the perfect doorway to look inside the place I’d been avoiding forever: myself. Stardust Birthday Party is about what is happening underneath all of this life stuff. My path inward. The details of my path are pointless because everyone’s path is different. It is about me sitting with myself for the first time and confronting the big question “WHAT AM I, REALLY?” It’s about the love and compassion for all things that enters when you find out you are nothing and everything. I think at one point I wanted to change the world, but now I know I can only change myself, or rather just strip away everything that is not me to reveal the only thing that’s ever been there. And that’s what this album is about, it’s me dancing while destroying the person I thought I was, and hopefully forever. In the liner notes of John Coltrane’s album A Love Supreme (which we pay tribute to on this album) he wrote: “During the year 1957, I experienced, by the grace of God, a spiritual awakening which was to lead me to a richer, fuller, more productive life. At that time, in gratitude, I humbly asked to be given the means and privilege to make others happy through music.” That’s it. That is the pure essence of creativity. Someone embodying what they have realized about themselves and the world that surrounds them. That is why this album exists. Thank you for letting me share this with you. Ron Gallo

New Release Round Up 9/21/18 at Mills Record Company



New Releases 21 September 2018



Prince - Piano & A Microphone 1983

A previously unheard home studio cassette recording of Prince performing at his piano in 1983 will be released as Piano & A Microphone 1983 this week. The nine-track, 35-minute project from the Prince Estate in coordination with Warner Bros. Records is planned for what would have been the rock icon's 60th birthday. This rare, intimate glimpse finds Prince working through songs including "17 Days" and "Purple Rain" (which would both be released the following year), a cover of Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You," "Strange Relationship" (issued in 1987 on the Sign O' The Times album) and "International Lover," as well as a rare recording of the pre-Civil War spiritual "Mary Don't You Weep," which will be heard on the end credits of Spike Lee's upcoming film BlacKkKlansman, due out in August.



Nas - NASIR

Nas returns this week with NASIR. The seven-track release for the New York rap artist was produced by Kanye West.

 

Joyce Manor - Million Dollars To Kill Me

Joyce Manor - Million Dollars To Kill MeJoyce Manor - Million Dollars To Kill MeJoyce Manor - Million Dollars To Kill Me - Epitaph

Joyce Manor are back with a new album, entitled Million Dollars To Kill Me. Frontman Barry Johnson along with co-founding guitarist Chase Knobbe, new drummer Pat Ware—(“Awesome new drummer,” adds Johnson)—and longtime bassist Matt Ebert, wrote enough songs to fill a full-length, and then worked to get songs lifted from emails between Johnson and one of his musical hero Impossibles’ guitarist/vocalist Rory Phillips, with whom he had been co-writing long distance, to match the ones written at full volume. (“Bedroom charm versus live rock band,” Johnson explains.) Their next step was a new step: their first time recording outside their L.A. hometown, at Converge’s Kurt Ballou’s GodCity studio in Salem, Massachusetts. They recorded daily 10-to-6 and then slept right upstairs in bunk beds: “Kinda felt like camp,” says Johnson. “It was a pleasure—I would recommend it to anyone.” If 2016’s Cody was about growing up, then Kill Me is about what happens next—the reckonings with love, money, doubt and confusion, and the hope that persists despite it all.

Death Grips - Year Of The Snitch

Year of the Snitch is the upcoming sixth studio album by experimental hip hop group Death Grips, set to be released on August 10, 2018 through Third Worlds and Harvest Records. We have the Indie Exclusive Clear Vinyl version in stock.

Metric - Art of Doubt

Toronto rockers Metric emphasize guitars on the band’s latest album, a collection of 12 new songs packed with massive riffs, driving rhythm and raw/smooth vocals that have become their instantly identifiable signature sound. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck, Nine Inch Nails), Metric’s seventh LP addresses a climate of cultural and political anxiety while refusing to give despair the upper hand. In many ways, it’s the most Metric album the band has ever made as Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott-Key rediscover their shared love of music and how good they are at making it together. “This felt like the culmination of a lifetime spent playing together and trusting each other and going for it,” Shaw says.

Adam's House Cat - Town Burned Down

Before Drive-By Truckers, Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood formed Adam’s House Cat in the Muscles Shoals-area of Alabama in 1985. Their songs and friendship was the foundation on which DBT was built. This “lost” album recorded in 1990 has never before been released. It was remixed by Dave Barbe and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound.

Christine & The Queens - Chris

The follow up to 2014's absolutely smashing debut "Chalear Humaine". Chris is a new pop anthem for the masses. It is an album about pop music as much as any of the other topics it addresses. Or rather, about a belief in pop music as something more than ephemeral – as a vehicle for ideas, a space in which you can transform yourself – in an era when pop is supposed to have lost its longstanding hold over its audience, when it’s not supposed to amount to much more than a pleasant soundtrack or minor distraction. Get it right, Chris implies, and it can still be powerful.

Pharrell - In My Mind

After producing and featuring on several songs by other artists, Pharrell Williams released his debut solo album 'In My Mind' in 2006. Featuring Kanye West, Gwen Stefani, Pusha T, Snoop Dogg, Nelly, and Slim Thug, 'In My Mind' is now available again on vinyl.



Billy F Gibbons - The Big Bad Blues
The Big Bad Blues, as the title suggests, focuses on Billy F Gibbons' lifelong love of the blues and rock & roll, showcasing the blues-influenced vocals and guitar licks that have together served as the foundation for his numerous hits over the past five decades. The album features 11 tracks balancing some classic covers like 'Rollin' and Tumblin,'' and 'Standing Around Crying' along with some of Billy's signature new blues originals.

William Fitzsimmons - Mission BellWilliam Fitzsimmons - Mission BellWilliam Fitzsimmons - Mission Bell - Nettwerk Records
Singer/Songwriter and music producer William Fitzsimmons' album Mission Bell is a chronicling of the tumultuous last year of his life - particularly of the separation from his second wife. Sonically, Mission Bell is Fitzsimmons' first analog tape-centric album. The sounds are raw, real, and tangible. The familiar comforts of acoustic guitars are present but now joined generously by synthesizers, electric guitars, drum loops and violins.

New Release Round Up 9/14/18 at Mills Record Company

New Release Round Up 9/14/18 at Mills Record Company

Emma Ruth Rundle - On Dark Horses

The cover to Emma Ruth Rundle's fourth solo record, On Dark Horses, bears a blurry photo of the songwriter obscuring her face with a large toy horse with broken legs. The photo suggests something candid but also hidden, graceful but also fractured,a fitting portrait for an artist who has established a career by vacillating between shrouding herself in mystery and exposing her wounds to the world. The first peek behind the curtain came with her Sargent House debut Some Heavy Ocean, where layers of distortion were excised in favor of acoustic guitar and Rundle's beguiling vocals. There was a distinct difference by the time Rundle released Marked For Death, a stark and deeply personal meditation on mortality and self-destructive behavior. Her entire musical trajectory, from the cinematic instrumentals of Red Sparowes to the lush haze of Marriages and onward through her solo career, seems like a gradual disclosure of intimate secrets. With On Dark Horses, Rundle doesn't shy away from uncomfortable realities or retreat into a private world, but it does capture an artist who has survived their personal nadir and come out stronger on the other side. The eight tracks of On Dark Horses capture the evolution of Rundle as an artist, with vestigial traces of the savvy guitar work of Electric Guitar: One, the siren song beauty of Some Heavy Ocean, and the amplified urgency of Marked For Death all factoring into the album's rich tapestry. Rundle arrives at the end of the album with an ode to a traumatized and heartbroken friend on the grand and triumphant "You Don't Have To Cry". After laboring over the majority of the material for the album, she wrote the finale in one sitting, describing its easy birth as a gift from the gods. It's a fitting closer, a song announcing Rundle's newfound hope and reminding us to take control during our darkest moments instead of succumbing to them.

Slothrust - The Pact

Slothrust is principal songwriter, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. On their fourth full-length album The Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes, demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own. This is their 4th EP that further stray from their noisy/grunge roots and dives further into the dreamy fuzzy side of the 90s. Leah's songwriting is as killer as ever, quirky & tongue and cheek. This record is their most soothing yet. A great follow up to 2017's "Everyone Else".
______________________________________________________________________________________


Guerilla Toss - Twisted Crystal

Analog synthesizers give tangible life to the works of Guerilla Toss. Whether it be the sound of a rocket ship, a kitten-with-a-wah, distorted dolphins, or a clavichord made out of honey-baked ham, the band consistently finds new ways to bring together the many ideas that combine to shape each new batch of art-rock puzzle pieces. Twisted Crystal, Guerilla Toss’ new LP, feels more personal than ever for the band. Angular yet irresistibly catchy, this collection of pop songs pulls influence from powerful groups like The Slits, ESG, Gina X, and early Madonna, with sing-speak vocals from Kassie Carlson nodding to legendary artists like Laurie Anderson, Grace Jones, and Lizzy Mercier Descloux – combining this all into a twisted, crystalline concoction. Oracles and enigmatic egos are common lyrical themes, but charismatic instrumentality springs the listener back to extraterrestrial comfort. Old favorite sounds ring true from the trusty Sequential Circuits Six Track Synthesizer and Clavia Drum Machine. New, more refined sounds are molded and polished by drummer/producer Peter Negroponte, whose passion for perfection and creation goes far beyond an all-consuming Tetris effect. Peter has truly excelled on this new recording, creating a complex networks of beats and sound that become easily intertwined with the rhythmic fabric of life. Raised in a devoutly religious family, vocalist Kassie Carlson started performing at the age of five. She often participated in large pastoral choral performances, as well as her family’s four-part harmony gospel quartet, making her no stranger to the stage. Growing up under the fear of God leaves a distinct footprint on your perception. An omnipresent male dictates not only your present waking life but also the rest of your eternity. Discovering a rock band was more than self-expression for Kassie, it was a manifestation of a self-healing temple, a personal pipeline for power. What better way to part the waters of toxic sludge than a matriarchal shout? Arian Shafiee, Guerilla Toss’ resident textural-guitar guru, is inspired by aspects of non-Western tuning and extended techniques. He designs moments of dense, glistening, pitch-shifted harmony and measured strumming that link classical impressionism to no-wave and early minimal music. His recent solo work truly comes through on this new record, as he tethers fantastical surreality to noise rock to deconstructed Middle Eastern pop music. Keyboardist Sam Lisabeth paws the keys with distinct virtuosity and expressive sass. A new member, Stephen Cooper (of the band Cloud Becomes Your Hand), binds the group with an urgent, disciplined, and melodic style. The hypnotic, ostinato-like basslines and up front rhythm tracks guide and grip each song like gravity, keeping the listener from swirling off into the cosmos. In albums past, Kassie’s performances resembled more of a manic, possessed high priestess; humming at the gates of hell, hacking telepathy and tugging the strings of every audience member. Twisted Crystal goes beyond this familiar darkness, leading us into a rhythmically calming charm with deep wisdom, serenity, and understanding. What is a twisted crystal? And who told you it would heal? At times the listener wanders through mazes of dizzying, alternately pulsing time signatures, but the roads always bounce, meet and magically snap back together. That meditative groove, both live and in the studio, has become signature for Guerilla Toss, drawing deep influence from 70s krautrock and experimental rock music like Tom Tom Club, Talking Heads, Brian Eno, Neu!, Cluster, Todd Rundgren, and La Dusseldorf. A constantly evolving, living breathing entity, the band now presents the album Twisted Crystal. Enjoy the same surrealistic, kinetic healing energy of live Guerilla Toss, today in your own home. “Magic is Easy. Hypnotize yourself well.”

New Release Round Up 9/7/18 at Mills Record Company

Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains The Same
Remastered audio on four 180-gram vinyl LPs, plus 28-page booklet. Led Zeppelin was at the peak of its powers on July 27-29 1973 when the band’s performances at New York’s Madison Square Garden were recorded for the concert film, The Song Remains The Same. The soundtrack to the film, produced by Jimmy Page, was originally released on Swan Song in 1976. The band continues revisiting their live canon on September 7 with a new edition of the soundtrack to THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME that features newly remastered audio. This release follows the recent reissue of their live album How The West Was Won, and rounds out the deluxe reissue series of their classic albums that began in 2014, building to the band’s 50th anniversary celebration slated to commence later this year. Coincidentally, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant played their first live show together, under the moniker “The New Yardbirds” at the time, on September 7, 1968. THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME will be released in multiple formats from Atlantic/Swan Song, including the full album’s debut in hi-res 5.1 surround sound on Blu-ray. The Super Deluxe Boxed Set will be the most exquisite and elaborate release in the reissue series, recreating the intricate embossing of the set’s original issue and will also mark the first time the full length film and soundtrack have been available in the same package. On the 4-LP set, Page made a change to the track sequence, allowing the epic, 29-minute version of “Dazed And Confused” to be featuring in its entirety on one side of vinyl for the first time. 

Paul Simon - In The Blue Light
Produced by Paul Simon and Roy Halee, who have worked together since the 1960s, the album features collaborations with a diverse array of artists who have joined Simon to lend fresh perspectives on 10 of the artist's favorite (though perhaps less-familiar) compositions drawn from the five-decade span of his illustrious solo career. Revisiting his repertoire, Simon has selected songs originally appearing on There Goes Rhymin' Simon (1973), Still Crazy After All These Years (1975), One-Trick Pony (1980), Hearts and Bones (1983), The Rhythm of The Saints (1990), You're The One (2000) and So Beautiful Or So What (2011), refreshing and transforming the compositions through new arrangements and a talented cast of guest musicians. Among the many artists joining Simon on In The Blue Light are jazz icons trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, guitarist Bill Frisell, drummers Jack DeJohnette and Steve Gadd and chamber ensemble quintet yMusic. 

Spiritualized - And Nothing Hurt
The first new Spiritualized album in 6 years. From the opening lullaby of “A Perfect Miracle” through to the Morse Code fadeout at the close of “Sail on Through,” Spiritualized wrap layer upon layer of gloriously transcendent sound together to create a mesmerizing and cinematic collection of songs. There are points where the waves of blissful noise are almost overwhelming – the thunderous climax of “On the Sunshine”; the spectral waltz of “The Prize”; the towering guitar solo on “I’m Your Man” – where one can imagine the studio’s speakers vibrating themselves off of the walls. Which is an incredible feat when you discover that the album was conceived and recorded almost entirely by one man – Jason Pierce, AKA J.Spaceman – in an upstairs room in his east London home. 

Waxahatchee - Great Thunder EP
Katie Crutchfield’s ever-shifting musical project Waxahatchee returns with the Great Thunder EP. Featuring a collection of songs written with now-dormant experimental recording group Great Thunder while Crutchfield was also writing the Waxahatchee albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp, the original recordings have mostly faded into obscurity. Unearthing and reimagining them with producer Brad Cook at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin was a cathartic experience, she says. On the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Out in the Storm, Crutchfield found herself looking to take a sharp turn away from the more rock-oriented influences of her recent records towards her more folk and country roots. “I would say that it is a complete 180 from the last record: super stripped-down, quiet, and with me performing solo, it’s a throwback to how I started,” writes Crutchfield. “Overall, the EP is a warm, kind of vibey recording.” Some of the songs on Great Thunder, like “Chapel of Pines” and “Singer’s No Star,” stayed the same and will be recognizable to those intensely familiar with Crutchfield’s catalog to date, while closer “Takes So Much” was built back up on piano from the bones of the original version, surprising even the songwriter: “Until then, I didn’t realize how beautiful this song was.” As Crutchfield entered April Base to record, she became ill but opted to forge on, beautifully stretching her voice to its emotional limits.

Lenny Kravitz - Raise Vibration
Raise Vibration will be Lenny Kravitz's 11th studio album released on CD and 2 LPs in multiple standard and deluxe formats. The record promises to be one of Kravitz’s most eclectic. “Low,” the song that got the whole process started, developed into a smooth funk showcase; what Kravitz calls “my Quincy Jones school” complete with horns and a string arrangement. The title track is lean power-trio rock, while the ballad “Here to Love” features Kravitz backed only by his piano and a string section. “Johnny Cash,” inspired by an encounter with the late legend, is what Kravitz jokingly calls “psychedelic funk meets country.” As usual, Kravitz plays most of the instruments himself, with longtime guitarist Craig Ross. Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk. Kravitz's talents as a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist have resonated now through eleven studio albums into a timeless catalog. He has also won four consecutive GRAMMY Awards, setting a record for the most wins in the "Best Male Rock Vocal Performance" category. 



Clutch - Book Of Bad Decisions
Book Of Bad Decisions, Clutch's 12th studio album is released via their own Weathermaker Music label. The album was recorded at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN by producer Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather) and consists of 15 new tracks. Professional observers in both the industry and media are intrigued by the band's consistent growth over the last couple of albums. From Earth Rocker to Psychic Warfare to now Book of Bad Decisions the band's output of quality music and relentless touring has never been greater. This release has had a very lengthy setup period. It is accompanied by four IG tracks all with their own videos and a social media campaign that has brought the four band members even closer to their old and new fans. Book of Bad Decisions is a cornerstone release in Clutch's long history of successfully reinventing themselves at every new turn.

 

Mothers - Render Another Ugly Method

Mothers - Render Another Ugly MethodMothers - Render Another Ugly MethodMothers - Render Another Ugly Method
Mothers attempt to exist in two places at once - both singular and collaborative, sprawling and concise, present and distant. Kristine Leschper, songwriter and founding member of the project, explains that it is in the space between opposites that she finds herself. The multifaceted is, by nature, fragmented - each facet reflecting a slightly different perspective of the whole. On their latest record, Render Another Ugly Method, the band attempts to gain an expanded view of its surroundings through splintered sound, thought, and image. Leschper began exploring songwriting when she moved to Athens, Georgia as a teenager. Inspired by the growth that studying art allowed her and energized by the buzzing southern town, she started to perform publicly in 2013 and quickly developed local acclaim for her stark, unflinchingly vulnerable songs. During this time, she met many local artists and musicians, among them Matthew Anderegg, whom she quickly recognized as an artistic kindred spirit and friend. The following year they began working together to flesh out and arrange a collection of songs she had written, which would become the project’s 2016 debut release, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired. Released in 2016, the album kicked off a sprawling eight months of touring across the US, UK and Europe, as the group honed their take on left-of center indie rock with an explosive and surprising live show that displayed how forceful the songs translated to a full-band setting. " Within Mothers, Leschper and Anderegg have remained a creative constant, with other collaborators changing over time. Render Another Ugly Method sees the remnants of Leschper and Anderegg, Chris Goggans and Drew Kirby in musical conversation, through cut-up songs that were torn apart and rebuilt over and over again.

New Release Round-Up 08-24-18

New Release Round-Up 08-24-18



New Releases 24 August 2018


Interpol - Marauder - Matador Records
For the first time since 2007’s Our Love to Admire, Interpol have opened themselves up to the input of a producer. For two-week spells between December of 2017 to April of 2018, they travelled to upstate New York to work with Dave Fridmann – famed for recording with Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Spoon, Mogwai, and countless others. In the run up to writing and recording, Sam found himself immersed in soul drummers such as Al Jackson Jr (Otis Redding’s drummer) and 80’s funk producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. “How can I make shit swing?” was the question Sam repeatedly asked himself, and the answer is in the striding gallop of opener “If You Really Love Nothing,” the embellished skip ‘n’ bounce of “Stay in Touch” and the R&B swagger of closer “It Probably Matters.” Interpol have always been world-beaters at creating a feeling, but Marauder is where the feel is just as crucial. Paul may have stepped out of the shadows as a bassist, but he’s stepping into an even brighter light as a songwriter. During Interpol’s previous albums, the singer largely kept himself out of his own work, preferring to fill his lyrics with detached thoughts, characters, and observations, often phrased in abstract. But more than 20 years on since forming at NYU, the frontman is finally allowing himself to play a role in his own stories. “This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are exciting and evocative to write about,” he explains. “I think in the past, I always felt autobiography was too small a thing for me to reference. I feel like now, I’m able to romanticize parts of my own life.” 

Bob Marley & The Wailers - Kaya 40

2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Bob Marley & The WailersKAYA. Recorded in part during Marley’s and the band’s 1977 exile in London, KAYA is very much the sibling record to EXODUS. Fittingly, as Ziggy Marley revisited the original session recordings for last year’s EXODUS 40 celebration, this year sibling Stephen Marley revisits the original session recordings to commemorate KAYA, bringing a fresh perspective to this suite that’s quietly referred to as the ‘Peace Treaty’ album.

Devotchka - This Night Falls Forever - Concord Records
This Night Falls Forever, released via Concord Records, is Devotchka's most ambitious album yet with more detailed arrangements, more people involved including full orchestras and an overall bigger sound. The band’s sixth studio album features 10 tracks written and produced by frontman Nick Urata. The vinyl edition features 3 sides of music and an exclusive vinyl etching on the 4th side.

The Devil Makes Three - Chains Are Broken

The Devil Makes Three - Chains Are BrokenThe Devil Makes Three - Chains Are BrokenThe Devil Makes Three - Chains Are Broken - New West Records
The power of words isn’t lost on longstanding Americana triumvirate The Devil Makes Three —Pete Bernhard, Lucia Turino, and Cooper McBean. For as much as they remain rooted in troubadour traditions of wandering folk, Delta blues, whiskey-soaked ragtime, and reckless rock ‘n’ roll, the band nods to the revolutionary unrest of author James Baldwin, the no-holds barred disillusionment of Ernest Hemingway, and Southern Gothic malaise of Flannery O’Connor. In that respect, their sixth full-length and first of original material since 2013, Chains Are Broken, resembles a dusty leather-bound book of short stories from some bygone era. As the band began writing ideas for Chains Are Broken, they veered off the proverbial path creatively. Instead of their typical revolving cast of collaborators, The Devil Makes Three stuck to its signature power trio, with one addition. This time, they invited touring drummer Stefan Amidon to power the bulk of the percussion. Another first, they retreated to Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, TX a stone’s throw from the Mexican border to record with producer Ted Hutt [Dropkick Murphys]. The incorporation of new sounds as well as the experimentation in space finds the Devil Makes Three crafting a new yet still familiar sound. Coupled with a continued focus on in-depth lyricism that tells a story in every song, Chains Are Broken is a liberating, rump-shaking collection of past, present and future.

The Frights - Hypochondriac

The Frights - HypochondriacThe Frights - HypochondriacThe Frights - Hypochondriac - Epitaph
Hypochondriac, the third full-length album from San Diego band The Frights, is an album full of addictively catchy songs about fear and frustration. “I’ve gotten better with time, but I’m pretty paranoid about most things, especially health issues—I think everything’s killing me,” says Mikey Carnevale, vocalist/guitarist for The Frights. “That, mixed with anxiety, means that I can be a real baby. All of these songs address this in one way or another.” The album is their first full-length for Epitaph Records, who signed The Frights in early 2018. Produced by FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper, Hypochondriac follows The Frights’ 2016 album You Are Going To Hate This and marks a period of major creative growth for the band (which also includes bassist Richard Dotson, drummer Marc Finn, and guitarist Jordan Clark). “I wrote every song on an acoustic guitar, which is something I made a point to do,” says Carnevale. Throughout Hypochondriac, The Frights build a brilliant tension between their shiny hooks and painful lyrics, their goofball spirit and melancholy outlook. In the end, the album unfolds as their most emotionally honest work so far, just as the band intended it to be.

Neil & Liam Finn - Lightsleeper

Neil & Liam Finn - LightsleeperNeil & Liam Finn - LightsleeperNeil & Liam Finn - Lightsleeper - PIAS America
Recorded mainly in Neil Finn's Auckland studio, Lightsleeper bursts with melody and the trademark euphoric flips that are the Finn family trademarks. When Neil's iconic pop sensibility meets Liam's lo-fi atmospherics, it's produces a feeling of intimacy and awe that makes it easy to wonder why the dynamic father and son duo haven't written together sooner. The simple Finn family ethos of making music with friends and family continues right through to the personnel recruited for the album. Lightsleeper features the touring band, Sharon Finn (Neil's wife, and Liam Finn's mother) plays bass on two of the songs, Elroy Finn (Liam's brother) plays drums on seven, good friend Connan Mockasin returns for four and legendary Mick Fleetwood turns up to play on ''Anger Plays A Part'', ''Any Other Way'' and ''We Know What It Means''. The unmistakable spirit of musicians at their peak, bound together by a still-hot desire to make music that is brewed within the bones, love, quiet revelation and the perfectly-evoked euphoria of being alive is what makes Lightsleeper such a gorgeous progression in the Finn family musical history.

Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood - With Animals

Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood - With AnimalsMark Lanegan & Duke Garwood - With AnimalsMark Lanegan & Duke Garwood - With Animals - PIAS America
Recorded in LA, Pasadena and Joshua Tree, With Animals is the second album by Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood, two artists who've spent their careers stalking the peripheries and mapping sounds of the small hours. As befits a record called With Animals, these dusty songs feel like they were created in the company of the denizens of the night. Analogue and dust flecked, it's as if Lanegan and Garwood have been holed up in a '60s recording studio while the apocalypse rages outside. Over the last decade, Lanegan and Garwood have worked in tangent on 2013's Black Pudding as well as on Lanegan's solo records (2012's Blues Funeral and 2017's Gargoyle after which Garwood toured as part of Lanegan's band).

Passenger is Mike Rosenberg, the Brighton-born singer/songwriter known for busking his way to the global hit “Let Her Go” which topped the charts in 19 countries. Produced by Rosenberg, along with longtime collaborator Chris Vallejo, the new album, Runaway, is largely inspired by the North American landscape and geography, both musically and lyrically, and taps into Rosenberg’s family roots in New Jersey. This brings a fresh new approach and sound, and speaks to the road going traveler in all of us.

Aaron Lee Tasjan - Karma For Cheap

Aaron Lee Tasjan - Karma For CheapAaron Lee Tasjan - Karma For CheapAaron Lee Tasjan - Karma For Cheap - New West Records
Most people know Aaron Lee Tasjan as one of the wittiest, most offbeat, brilliant, weed-smokin’ & LSD microdosin’ Americana troubadours writing and singing songs today. And the New York Times, NPR and Rolling Stone will all gladly corroborate. But steel yourselves, folk fans, because he’s about to follow his restless muse straight out from under the weight of everyone’s expectations into the kind of glammy, jingle-jangle power-pop- and- psych-tinged sounds he hasn’t dabbled in since his younger days playing lead guitar for a late-period incarnation of The New York Dolls. Karma For Cheap is Tasjan’s third LP and second for his label New West Records, based in his current hometown of Nashville. The record was co-produced by ALT and his friends Jeff Trott (Stevie Nicks, Liz Phair, Meiko, Joshua Radin) and Gregory Lattimer (Albert Hammond Jr.) and features Aaron Lee’s road band—guitarist Brian Wright, bassist Tommy Scifres and drummer Seth Earnest—with whom he’s been touring heavily for the last two years.  While the stylistic shift from Tasjan’s palpably stoned ‘70s-country-channeling 2015 debut, In the Blazes, to his more sophisticated, introspective and lushly produced 2016 follow-up, Silver Tears, was relatively incremental, Karma’s rocked-up Brit-pop-influenced Beatles-Bowie-Badfinger vibes underscore a significant departure. The album boldly reimagines these vintage sounds, pushing the boundary of what can be considered Americana.

Troye Sivan - Bloom

Troye Sivan - BloomTroye Sivan - BloomTroye Sivan - Bloom - Capitol
Bloom is an incomparably sweet and intimate work, and yet it's so well-named because from that base unfurls something grand and universal. It's also full of bops—a dizzy swirl of '80s synth-pop, crisp modern production, timeless balladry, and joyous dance—whose bold streaks and subtle shades effortlessly bridge arty to accessible. Troye Sivan executed his vision with care, first writing with trusty collaborator-confidants Bram Inscore, Allie X, and Leland, then taking those songs to producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Usher, Kelela) and starting another batch in Sweden with Max Martin's MXM crew. He worked from a sonic moodboard—everyone from Madonna to This Mortal Coil, Phil Collins to Perfume Genius, Drake to Sky Ferreira—and emerged with a sound distinctly his own, but broad enough to span the liberating pulse of "My My My!," the epic stadium-rock of "Animal," and the cozy feel of Ariana Grande duet "Dance to This."

Alkaline Trio - Is This Thing Cursed?

Alkaline Trio - Is This Thing Cursed?Alkaline Trio - Is This Thing Cursed?Alkaline Trio - Is This Thing Cursed? - Epitaph
Across two decades, eight albums, and a multitude of singles, splits, and EPs, Alkaline Trio has built a reputation as a defining act in punk rock’s modern era. Formed in Chicago by vocalist-guitarist Matt Skiba in 1996, the band would come into its own with its debut album Goddammit in 1998. Since then, the band has continually evolved, incorporating new influences with each record while achieving artistic, critical, and commercial success along the way. It’s been 5 years since Alkaline Trio released their last studio album, My Shame Is True. In that time, they’ve toured the world, sold over a million records, including a 20th Anniversary – 8 LP live box set, recorded on their 2014-15 Past Live tour. Since those Past Live shows, Andriano and drummer Derek Grant both released solo albums, and Skiba joined blink-182, releasing the chart-topping album California with the band. Alkaline Trio’s live shows have always been thrilling due to the fact that, even as the band ascended through the ranks of punk, they always retained the feeling of three friends excited to be on stage together. “When I think of a Trio live show,” says Skiba, “I always go back to the humble beginnings of the band, and I want that to always be in this band.” Alkaline Trio closed 2017 with a coveted opening slot for The Original Misfits, a band Skiba describes as his “first love,” Alkaline Trio is primed to step back into the spotlight. “We have the wind at our backs, it seems,” says Skiba. “Every aspect of the band—be it business or artistically or whatever—it feels like the Gods are in our corner.” Andriano agrees, and says that he’s ready to make the band’s best record yet. “I wanna be a band that people want to hear new stuff from. Because I feel like I’m still in a band that wants to write good, new music.” “Is This Thing Cursed?” will prove that good, new music is worth the wait.

Saintseneca - Pillar Of Na

Saintseneca - Pillar Of NaSaintseneca - Pillar Of NaSaintseneca - Pillar Of Na - Epitaph
Saintseneca's Zac Little has been thinking a lot about memory. Not necessarily his memories, though they creep in often, too. Rather, he mulls over the idea of memory itself: its resilience, its haziness, how it slips away as we try to hang on, the way it resurfaces despite our best efforts to forget. Memory is the common thread running throughout the Columbus, OH folk-punk band’s fourth album, Pillar Of Na, arriving in late summer via ANTI- Records. Following 2015’s critically lauded Such Things, the new album’s name is rooted in remembrance, referencing the Genesis story of Lot’s wife who looks back at a burning Sodom after God instructs her not to. She looks back, and God turns her into a pillar of salt. “Na,” meanwhile, is the chemical symbol for sodium. “Nah” is a passive refusal and the universal song word. It means nothing and stands for nothing. It is “as it is.” Musically, Pillar of Na is Saintseneca’s most ambitious album to date, with Little aiming to incorporate genre elements he’d rarely heard in folk. “I wanted to use the idiom of folk-rock, or whatever you want to call it, and to try to do something that had never been done before,” Little explains. I told Mike Mogis I wanted Violent Femmes meets the new Blade Runner soundtrack. I’m looking for the intersection between Kendrick Lamar and The Fairport Convention.”
