NEW RELEASE RUNDOWN
How does it feel to be champs, KC? Hope everyone had a safe and also absolutely wild time celebrating the Big Game.
We've got another hot round of new releases coming at you this week, headlined by a few new releases from some familiar names. Of course, there's always a good chance your next favorite band will be in this week's batch as well, so be sure to take a look through the entire list!
First, I want to draw your attention to the new LP from indie rock staples Nada Surf, Never Not Together. This band has been a consistent force in interesting rock music since the '90s, and they've influenced a lot of your favorite bands along the way. They've still got it 20+ years on. Jam it and come pick up your copy on indie exclusive colored vinyl!
Tulsa-based singer-songwriter John Moreland releases LP5 this week, the follow-up to 2014's fantastic Big Bad Luv. We love John, we love his songs. Buy his records.
Neo-soul star Leon Bridges and groove-psych instrumentalists Khruangbin team up this week for Texas Sun, an EP of brand new material for both artists. This is seriously the collaboration the world didn't know it needed. You'll want to pick up the indie exclusive edition fast before it's gone!
From XL Recordings, we get the 10th anniversary of Gil Scott-Heron's brilliant final album, I'm New Here. In addition to this deluxe reissue, XL is also dropping a re-imagining of the album from Chicago jazz upstart Makaya McCraven. We've got excellent large screeprint promo posters to hand out with purchase (while supplies last, very limited!)
We've also got the new LP from Green Day. The legendary band is still chugging along, and they're snotty as ever on this new album, which we've also got on limited, exclusive pink vinyl.
Other new releases this week include new titles from Stone Temple Pilots, Nils Frahm, and more! Check the full list below and come load up this weekend!
In February, we'll be teaming up with our bookstore (Wise Blood Booksellers) to host a reading group discussion event on Patti Smith's National Book Award Winning Year of the Monkey. The discussion will take place at Mills on Wednesday, February 19th at 6:30pm. We suspect space might be a bit limited for this discussion, so we want to offer you a chance to secure your spot in the group by purchasing the book either at Mills or Wise Blood (both locations are stocked up!). Come pick up the book, read it in your own time, then come together for a discussion (and maybe some treats?) For more info, follow THIS event page, or visit the http://wisebloodbooksellers.
We're also excited to announce that on Thursday, February 20th we'll be hosting a listening party for KING KRULE's new LP Man Alive, which releases on LP and CD on the 21st. As with our Pinegrove listening party, this event will be a chance for you to not only hear the new album a day early, but PURCHASE a day early as well.
This week, we've got this Green Day Father of All... prize pack available as an enter-to-win drawing. Other giveaways include:
- Posters with purchase of Gil Scott-Heron/Makaya McCraven I'm New Here LPs.
- Bonus limited edition 7" with purchase of Torres Silver Tongue LP.
- Billy Corgan posters with purchase of new Cotillions LP.
Pre-order Upcoming Titles
We're heading (hopefully) fast into Spring 2020, which means the new releases are going to start heating up quick. We've already had huge announcements of new records from artists like Pearl Jam and Mac Miller, but we've also got pre-orders LIVE for upcoming LPs from the likes of King Krule, Courtney Barnett, and Thundercat.
Just updated the list today, so go to THIS LINK to see the list of current pre-orders, and feel free to search and shop our website 24/7
Record Store Day Save the Date
It's never to early to start thinking about Record Store Day, yeah? As we cruise into February, go ahead and circle April 18th on your calendar. You know how we do it. More soon.
Dylan, Judy, and the Team
