NEW RELEASE RUNDOWN 2020 continues to deliver the goods, with another stack of dynamite new releases this week--both brand new music and reissues of some essential LPs.
Let's start with new music from KING KRULE.Man Alive!is the follow-up to 2017's brilliant The Ooz, which is on constant rotation around these parts. We're excited to be hosting a listening party tonight (Thursday, Feb 20), at which you can both hear and PURCHASE the record on exclusive red vinyl a day early. That's right! We've got clearance to sell you the album a night early. Pretty wild, huh? More info below!
Next, we've got the new LP fromWar Nymph, aka GRIMES,Miss Anthropocene,which comes out on indie exclusive pink colored vinyl. We're fairly certain everyone in the world will be talking about this album, so stay on top of it and get yourself a copy!
COURTNEY BARNETT releases herMTV Unpluggedset from last year on aqua blue vinyl. The tracklist features old favorites, covers, and appearances from talented friends. A must for any Barnett fan.
Reissues this week include a handful of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN re-ups, with a specific focus on his 2000-2005 output. These records from the start of the 21st century represent some of his most thoughtful songwriting, IMO, and have been out of print on vinyl for years now. Springsteen-heads rejoice!
We've also got a grip of THIN LIZZY reissues from their mid-70s heyday, includingNightlife, Jailbreak,and the ever-groovyJohnny the Fox.Rock never got any better than these few albums.
New releases from experimental metal supergroup SIGHTLESS PIT (featuring Lingua Ignota and members of the Body), Best Coast, and Six Organs of Admittance also highlight this week's offerings. See the full list of new titles below!
As mentioned above, TONIGHT (Thursday, February 20th) we'll be hosting a listening party for KING KRULE's new LPMan Alive, which officially releases on LP and CD tomorrow. 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. We'll have stickers and posters to giveaway to attendees!
