    Nonesuch

    Drop Out Boogie captures a number of first takes that hark back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio, basements. The duo welcomed new collaborators Billy F. Gibbons, Greg Cartwright, and Angelo Petraglia to the sessions, marking the first time they've invited multiple new contributors to work simultaneously on one of their own albums.

    Rough Trade

    Soak’s brilliant melodies are on full display here. Lead single “Last July” features a masterfully off-kilter vocal set against swooning guitars, creating a lush pop song that wouldn’t be out of place in the end credits of a 90s coming-of-age film. Lyrically, it manages to be both playful and self-aware. The idea of identity is central to the record and lyrics are as deeply personal as they are universal.

    Sub Pop

    Raw, sugary blast of distorted pop. The debut album from METZ guitarist and vocalist Alex Edkins contains all of his main band's bite with an unexpected, yet totally satisfying, sweetness. Imagine The Amps covering Big Star, or the gloriously hissy miniature epics of classic-era Guided by Voices combined with the bombast of Copper Blue- era Sugar-just tons of red-line distortion cut with the type of tunecraft that thrills the moment it hits your ears.

    Two decades into their venerable careers, the death metal savants are back with their new record. Their seventh studio album is a riff-driven assault that captures the tension of the modern condition and channels it into 9 songs of ripping end-times death metal. Spewing with Orwellian invective and razor-sharp songwriting, Complete Control is a much-needed wake-up call for the disaffected and dispossessed.

    Grand Jury

    Jordana's mission is simple: keep trying to be her, even when it's hard. So it's no surprise perseverance and self-discovery are central themes on her first album. "The album title has a few meanings to me. Mostly, it's about not giving up," says the 21-year-old polymath. "The wall can be anything in your way. The album is a sort of reminder to myself that I have to face those things, and I can't take the easy route and turn around."

    Relapse

    Heavy Pendulum showcases everything that has long established Cave In as one of the best contemporary rock, hardcore, and metal bands since their monumental 1998 debut. From the driving tracks such as crushing opener "New Reality" to the metallic edge of "Blood Spiller", Heavy Pendulum sees Cave In look back at their discography and capture their most memorable, visceral, and forward-thinking moments.

    UMe

    Written by the band over the past two years it features 15 tracks including the anthemic, stadium-ready singles “Kick” and “Fire It Up”, with guest vocals from Alison Krauss on “This Guitar” and “Lifeless”. The album title references T. Rex’s “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” with nods to T.Rex, David Bowie and Mott The Hoople across the album, which mixes the sound of their classic spirit with modern fire.

    Fat Possum

    These 13 hits feel like flashlights in the dark, acknowledging how difficult everything from love and sex to living and dying can be while supplying the inspiration of their own experiences. “There’s a hole in my window/I was wondering how the rain was getting in,” Emily Kempf sings during the magnetic “Window,” acknowledging the problem before jubilantly exclaiming she’s moving toward something new. “Blue skies!”

    Last Gang

    After spending over two decades together, Stars’ ninth album finds the Montreal indie rockers discussing the inevitability of mortality while celebrating the joys that make life worth living. Beautiful, bittersweet and inevitably brilliant, From Capelton Hill is a melancholic and melodic album about all of life’s foibles that will keep you warm in even the coldest moments.

    Zappo Production

    ‘Flicted completes a trilogy of song collections (Absolute Zero and Non-Secure Connection) based on film “cues” Hornsby composed for writer and director Spike Lee. This unique approach enables him to build upon and explore new stylistic techniques while collaborating with a wide variety of talented artists. On ‘Flicted, Hornsby’s goal was to make a more upbeat record overall, speaking on COVID-19 using the world of science as a recurring influence.

    Daptone

    Before Dan Klein's unfortunate passing, The Frightnrs agreed to keep a promise he asked of them - continue making music together. Thanks to vocal stems captured in previous recording sessions, Klein's other-worldly voice lives on. The Frightnrs returned to the studio and painstakingly conceptualized, tracked, re-tracked and mixed them into a complete album with their beloved friend singing lead.

    Loosegroove Records

    The second release from Pearl Jam co-founder Stone Gossard, folksinger Mason Jennings, soul innovator Brittany Davis, and iconic drummer Matt Chamberlain - is more than the sum of its parts. It's a different equation entirely, one that creates a genre-bending, rhythmic rock sound that makes room for electronic soundscapes, organic bombast, and four-way songwriting collaborations that defy categorization.

    Ben Zaidi - Acre of Salt.

    Ben Zaidi - Acre of Salt. - Nettwerk Records
    "Fusing elements of each of his early influences, from Joni Mitchell to Phoebe Bridgers, Zaidi is creating soundscapes that bring awareness of documenting the euphoric high-and-low feelings of youth." - Unpublished Magazine. "Reminds us of the Garden State soundtrack in all of it's closeness and acoustic guitar strumming. This one's terrific." - American Songwriter. '2013' is a sweeping nostalgic offering from Zaidi... emotive, lyrically dense reflections... pulling from folk touchstones." - Under The Radar.

    Jasmyn - In The Wild

    Jasmyn - In The Wild - Anti
    Jasmyn is the new solo project created by Jasmyn Burke, former singer-song- writer and frontwoman of the critically acclaimed Canadian band, Weaves. Having two JUNO nominations for Alternative Album of the Year and two SOCAN Songwriting Prize nominations, Burke has established herself as one of Canada’s most exciting and fresh voices.  With this new project, she has decided to use her own name, Jasmyn, to mark the start of exploring her own unique sound as a solo artist. Collaborating remotely with Los Angeles-based producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten) on a body of work she had compiled over months of being in lockdown. Finally in the Spring of 2021, Jasmyn went to LA to record with Congleton, exploring themes of finding patterns in life and how to perhaps change them. On the general direction of her new album In The Wild, Jasmyn said, “This was written during the Fall of 2020; The world was feeling pretty heavy, and I felt myself wanting to write music that created a mood of happiness and space to grow. I feel like I have grown and changed as a person over the last few years and wanted to write songs that created a sense of confidence and well-being.”

    Frank Sinatra - Watertown: Remastered

    Frank Sinatra - Watertown: Remastered - Capitol
    Released in 1970, Watertown is a lost masterpiece. It was a turning point for Frank Sinatra: a concept album from the man who pioneered the concept album, written by Bob Gaudio, of Four Seasons fame, and Jake Holmes, who previously had written the Four Seasons’ own concept album. Despite a top 5 AC chart showing for the single “I Would Be In Love (anyway),” the album was poorly received at the time, but has gone through a re-evaluation in recent years and is now considered one of Sinatra’s finest recordings. The LP edition featuring the original 10-track sequence, a package with all original lyrics, a printed sleeve with new liner notes, a track-by-track breakdown from Mr. Gaudio, and a 12” X 24” poster.
