B Boys [Dudu]

July 26 street date. New York's B Boys find inspiration in the chaos that surrounds them: the aggressive attitude and sonic lawlessness of the city they live, work, and breathe in every day. Their raw, yet meticulous style is characterized by rhythmic complexity, commanding riffs, and introspective lyrics that are as playful and self-aware as they are cutting. Across their two acclaimed releases on Captured Tracks - 2016's "No Worry No Mind" EP and 2017's debut full-length "Dada" - B Boys explore solitude and self-reflection through sharp, high-energy shouts and melodic mediations. Now, the sprightly sarcasm and acerbic commentary continues on the band’s highly anticipated sophomore LP, "Dudu". Influenced by The Clash, Wire, and Talking Heads, "Dudu" finds B Boys picking up where they left off, pondering quotidien grievances while examining the bigger picture.
Baillargeon, Paul & Dean Morgan [Viens, mon amour - OST (180g)]

Available now ! (Baillargeon’s ecclectic band features musicians from Les Sinners and L’Infonie and was one of the first in Québec to include a Moog synthesizer on an LP! .. Pressing of 1000 copies, LP includes a folded insert with extensive liner notes, rare artwork and exclusive commentaries from the composers.) .. Trésor National is a new Montreal-based record label dedicated to reissuing long lost gems recorded in Québec (Canada). Their inaugurational release will be a 180g vinyl-only official reissue of the 1970 cult classic soundtrack “Viens, mon amour” (Love in a 4 Letter World), composed by Paul Baillargeon (Star Trek TV series, Jean-Pierre Ferland's Soleil, Curious Georges) and Dean Morgan. Between 1968 and 1974, Quebec was exposed to unabashed exploitation cinema. Erotic and taboo, the B-movies took on the name of “films de fesses” (titty films) or “maple syrup porn”. The genre produced some of the most delectable and collectable soundtracks at the time while “Viens, mon amour” easily stands out as one of the sexiest example ever recorded in La Belle Province! Original pressings are scarce and have been highly sought-after for decades by collectors from around the world. This remastered reissue highlights every sensual, psychedelic and funky side, where rare grooves mix with delicate pop songs and Moog-infused, fuzz-driven titles with hard-hitting brass. A true gem for cinephiles, DJs and all diggers of exotic sounds... with a distinctive Québécois feel. - - - - -// Trésor National est une nouvelle étiquette de disques montréalaise dédiée à la réédition d’oeuvres nichées voire inédites du patrimoine musical québécois. Nous inaugurons notre catalogue avec la réédition sur vinyle 180g de la cultissime bande sonore de 1970 “Viens, mon amour”, composée par Paul Baillargeon (Soleil de Jean-Pierre Ferland; séries télévisées de Star Trek) et Dean Morgan.

Barrett, Pastor T.L. & The Youth For Christ Choir [Do Not Pass Me By (silver vinyl)]

August 9 street date. Limited silver vinyl edition. The sequel to Pastor Barrett's landmark 1971 masterpiece "Like A Ship, Do Not Pass Me By" finds the young Chicago preacher and his Youth for Christ Choir continuing their genre-bending spiritual journey. Heavy drums, soaring falsettos, euphoric tambourines, sharp horns, and Barrett's unwavering devotion dance around a 40-piece choir, working together to form sanctified slab of gospel funk. Pressed in a minuscule quantity in 1973, "Do Not Pass Me By" was sold primarily from the pulpit of Barrett's Mt. Zion Baptist Church, disappearing into Chicago’s south side for 45 years before Numero's excavation. The ten-song album has been remastered, and its generic album cover updated to match Barrett's vision.
Blanck Mass [Animated Violence Mild]

August 16 street date. Fourth full-length under the Blanck Mass moniker by Benjamin John Power (Fuck Buttons). "Animated Violence Mild" was written throughout 2018, at Blanck Mass' studio outside of Edinburgh. "These eight tracks are the diary of a year of work steeped in honing craft, self-discovery, and grief - the latter of which reared its head at the final hurdle of producing this record and created a whole separate narrative: grief, both for what I have lost personally, but also in a global sense, for what we as a species have lost and handed over to our blood-sucking counterpart, consumerism, only to be ravaged by it. I believe that many of us have willfully allowed our survival instinct to become engulfed by the snake we birthed. Animated - brought to life by humankind. Violent - insurmountable and wild beyond our control. Mild - delicious." - Benjamin John Power.
Drab Majesty [Modern Mirror (2LP)]

July 12 street date. Drab Majesty's third album, "Modern Mirror", is a journey of self-reflection, nostalgia, love, beauty, and heartbreak told across eight addictive and emotional synth pop anthems - a seemingly classic tale delivered unblinkingly through the frame of the modern world. Elements of classic tragedy weigh heavily in the reflection of Modern Mirror in songs like "The Other Side", possessing a fundamental sound that is energetic, luminous and hopeful. Fusing the sonic aesthetics of predecessors like New Order and The Cure within the cautious instruction of Greek mythology and modern science fiction, Drab Majesty has birthed a hybrid of dreamy malaise, captured for a future moment.
Follakzoid [I (2LP)]

August 2 street date. The long-awaited fourth full-length by Föllakzoid isn’t merely a recalibration for the band. It is a multidimensional reconsideration of what the process of songwriting, performance, and creating a work of recorded music can be. Föllakzoid grows via depuration, aiming with each record to fill longer spaces of time with fewer and fewer elements. The creative perspective of the band has always been about unlearning the narrative and musical knowledge that shape the physical and digital formats and conceptions available, both visually and musically in order to make a time-space metric structure that dissolves both the author and the narrative paradigms. Unlike past Föllakzoid records, that were done in single takes with the full band, this record took three months to construct out of more than 60 separate stems - guitars, bass, drums, synthesizers, and vocals, all recorded in isolation. Producer Atom TM, who was not present for recording, was then asked to re-organize the four sequences of stems without any length, structural restrictions or guidelines. The result of this was a set of songs where neither the band's, nor the producer's, structural vision primarily shaped the metric or tonal space shifts, but where both were still subliminally present in each of the parts that form the structure and the frequency modulations that guide them.
Gauche [A People's History Of Gauche]

July 12 street date. On July 12, Washington, DC’s Gauche will release A People’s History of Gauche, a collective catharsis of anger, frustration, and trauma through creativity. Jason P Barnett, Adrienne CN Berry, Mary Jane Regalado, Pearie Sol, and Daniele Yandel find their agency and joy through creating and performing music together in 36 minutes of groove-filled power punk. Recorded with Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) and Robert Szmurlo in Brooklyn, NY, and with Jonah Takagi (Ex Hex) in DC, A People’s History of Gauche marks the first time the band worked with people outside of their ranks, resulting in a fuller sound that boasts more intricate instrumentation. From the very first line of album opener “Flash”—“Light’s supposed to show the way, not over-expose it”—Gauche are here to compel us to dance while singing along about society’s universal struggles. Gauche undoubtedly make art, but their guiding tenet is craft. “When I say that, I mean in the sense that Art with a capital A is thought of as something rarefied, something outside the context of everyday life, outside of everyone’s grasp or potential,” expounds Daniele. “That sense of craft, of something you return to every day and is valuable because it is something you share in common with all people, is how I think of music. Well, good music at least.” Gauche bring us music and movement and struggle and light, and now it is our job to dance!
Good Riddance [Thoughts And Prayers]

July 26 street date (date change). For more than 25 years, Good Riddance has written tuneful punk anthems that take on injustice in all forms, and that spirit carries through to their brand new album "Thoughts And Prayers", their second album since reforming in 2012. As a voice of resistance through four presidential administrations, Good Riddance seems well-suited for these fraught times - but don't expect a bunch of obvious anti-45 screeds. Produced and mixed once again by Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore - who've helmed every Good RIddance album since 1999's "Operation Phoenix" - "Thoughts and Prayers boasts the band's signature sound of highly melodic, fast-paced punk. Good Riddance may not have changed the world in their lengthy triumphant career, but their impact is apparent through the social awareness and political action of their many many thousands of passionate fans. $.50 from each sale of "Thoughts And Prayers" will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank and Never Again MSD.
Gov'T Mule [Bring On the Music (2CD/2DVD) Live At the Capitol Theatre]

July 19 street date. By the time the world hears the performances from these two shows, Gov’t Mule will have celebrated 25 years as a band, which is something they never could have imagined. It’s no easy task keeping a band together for 25 years. You don’t get to do that without having built, nurtured, depended on, and tested important relationships. In fact, with any band that’s stayed around that long, it’s all about relationships. When the band decided to document where they are currently (musically speaking), it was immediately clear that, amongst other things, this release should be a celebration of those relationships. From the project’s inception it was always planned on being filmed and recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Where they have "had the pleasure of playing there multiple times with many magical shows taking place over the years." Filmed and directed by Danny Clinch, who’s filmography includes projetcs with Pearl Jam, The Avett Brothers, The Foo Fighters, John Mayer, and many more. The performances were captured on 9 cameras. This is the first time the band’s updated stage setup and production has been captured on film. Gov’t Mule has releases 22 albums since their inception.
Have Mercy [The Love Life]

August 2 street date. Baltimore natives Have Mercy are back with their newest album The Love Life set for release on August 2nd. Awash in textured instrumentation, The Love Life finds the pair exploring the negative space in Have Mercy’s music like never before. From the droning, delicate “Dressed Down” to the nostalgic look back “Mattress on the Floor” and first single “Clair,” which marries propulsive melodies with staccato strings and drum machines, The Love Life pulls from all eras of the band’s career while simultaneously writing a new one—deftly balancing the confidence Swindle and Gleason have grown into as songwriters and retaining the sense of wide-eyed spontaneity that colored Have Mercy’s early work. For Fans Of: Real Friends, Sorority Noise, Manchester Orchestra.
Hot Water Music [Shake Up the Shadows (EP)]

August 16 street date. Hot Water Music. Those three words describe more than just a band at this point, they describe a way of life. Since forming in Florida in 1994, the act have constantly reinvented themselves by combining elements of punk rock and post-hardcore over the course of eight full-lengths, countless vinyl releases and energetic live shows. However instead of taking a victory lap in celebration of their current 25th anniversary tour –group marked the occasion by recording five new songs for the Shake Up The Shadows EP, which sees the band – guitarist/vocalists Chuck Ragan and Chris Wollard, bassist Jason Black and drummer George Rebelo – crafting some of the most impassioned music of their career. “Celebrating our 25th anniversary isn’t self-congratulatory,” Ragan summarizes. “It’s the band saying, ‘Look at what all of us built and let’s celebrate that.’”
Ikebe Shakedown [Kings Left Behind]

August 16 street date. Ten years ago, Ikebe Shakedown began pushing the boundaries of instrumental music. Each new track and live set has sent them deeper into combining the primal elements of '70s soul, raw psychedelic style, and cinematic Western soundtracks with powerful grooves and soaring melodies. Now, with their new release, "Kings Left Behind", the band is giving listeners more mystery and majesty than ever before. The album features the entire group collaborating to produce tracks that deliver punches right to the gut, even as dreamy guitars and lush horn melodies and string arrangements capture the imagination.
Khruangbin [Hasta El Cielo (LP+7-inch)]

July 12 street date. Globetrotting Texan trio Khruangbin are set to release 'Hasta El Cielo', the glorious dub version of their second album 'Con Todo El Mundo'. The full album has been processed anew along with two bonus dubs by renowned Jamaican producer Scientist. The band's exotic, spacious, psychedelic funk aligns with the dub treatment particularly well. Formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald "DJ" Johnson on drums; Khruangbin's sounds are rooted in the deepest waters of music from around the world, infused with classic soul, dub and psychedelia.
Lingua Ignota [Caligula (2LP)]

July 19 street date. Caligula, the new album from Lingua Ignota, takes the vision of Kristin Hayter’s vessel to a new level of grandeur, her purging and vengeful audial vision going beyond anything preceding it and reaching a new unparalleled sonic plane within her oeuvre. Succeeding her self-released 2017 All Bitches Die opus, this new one sees Hayter design her most ambitious work to date, displaying the full force of her talent as a vocalist, composer, and storyteller. Vast in scope and multivalent in its influences, with delivery nothing short of demonic, this is an outsider’s opera; magnificent, hideous, and raw. Eschewing and disavowing genre altogether, Hayter builds her own world. Working closely with Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets studio, Hayter strips away much of the industrial and electronic elements of her previous work, approaching instead the corporeal intensity and intimate menace of her notorious live performances, achieved with unconventional recording techniques and sound sources, as well as a full arsenal of live instrumentation and collaborators including harsh noise master Sam McKinlay (The Rita), visceral drummer Lee Buford (The Body) and frenetic percussionist Ted Byrnes (Cackle Car, Wood & Metal), with guest vocals from Dylan Walker (Full of Hell), Mike Berdan (Uniform), and Noraa Kaplan (Visibilities). Caligula is a massive work, a multi-layered epic that gives voice and space to that which has been silenced and cut out.
Purple Mountains [Purple Mountains]

July 12 street date. Ten years have come and gone since David Berman's Silver Jews ended their classic run and Berman announced his retirement from music. Now Berman returns with Purple Mountains, his new nom-de-rock. "Purple Mountains" is also the name of what will be known as one of his greatest albums - full of double-jointed wit and wisdom, up to the neck in his special recipe of handcrafted country-rock joys and sorrows that sing legendary in cracked and broken hearts. The songs of "Purple Mountains" are a potent brew, stitched together from lifetimes, knitting the drift of the years with the tightest lyric construction Berman's ever attempted. Honesty is archly in the air, but lines of incredible bleakness somehow give way to playful distraction and the hiding of surprises for close listeners.
Saxon [The Eagle Has Landed 40 Live (3CD)]

August 2 street date. Saxon Celebrate Four Dominant Metal Decades With ‘The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live)’. On August 2nd, British heavy metal legends will release their live 40th anniversary celebration The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live) through Silver Lining Music. Featuring 40 of the band’s most iconic tracks spanning their entire career thus-far, the selection was personally curated by front man and founder Biff Byford, who selected the best live performances from an array of international shows over the last twelve years. From “State of Grace” to “Machine Gun” to “20,000 Ft”, The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live) is Saxon at their loudest, proudest and definitive best, delivering a full-blooded journey through the songs which have established them as vanguards of heavy metal music. The album will be released in the following formats: Triple CD packed in a 6 panels digipack with a 16 pg booklet, 12” lid-off Boxset, containing 5 x 12” 180 gms vinyl, The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live) Tour Pass and Slipmat and an exclusive 40 page book & Digital Download.
Segall, Ty [First Taste]

August 2 street date. "First Taste" is an introspective set after the extroversions of "Freedom’s Goblin" - yet just as steeped in party beats somehow, even as Ty trails through his back pages, reflecting on family, re-encountering pasts, anticipating futures. This production is INSANE, far-out, stranger than known, tones and rhythms that expand before our ears. "First Taste" is arch, full of high-energy jams, with a thing in each mix always insistently different. Ty's song design is all over the place - not even a surprise anymore - but unlike the freewheeling feast style of "Freedom's Goblin", these twelve numbers form a tightly revolving cycle of song and sound that focuses thoughts.
Suicide [Suicide (Hard Bookpack packaging)]

July 26 street date. Mute / BMG announce the definitive reissue of Suicide’s genuinely classic and highly influential eponymous debut album. As part of the Art Of The Album series, the album has been re-mastered in 2019 and re-issued on CD & Vinyl. The hardback CD and 140g red vinyl packages include exclusive photographs and extensive sleeve notes by The Quietus’ John Doran exploring the impact of the band through “The Times,” “The Key Players,” “The Song Writing,” “The Production,” “The Impact” and “The Legacy.” Although the band barely received any credit at the time, Suicide (vocals: Alan Vega and electronics: Martin Rev) were inspirational for numerous synth pop bands throughout the 80’s. Having originally formed in 1970, Suicide lay dormant for several years before they re-emerged in 1976 at the heart of the punk scene centered on CBGB's club in New York where the likes of The Ramones, Patti Smith and Television also found initial recognition. Four decades later, we are only just now counting the positive cost of their influence across genres such as techno, noise, electro clash, goth, synth pop, psych and industrial. Suicide's influence was immediately seen in the rise of bands like Soft Cell, Depeche Mode and The Jesus And Mary Chain. Elsewhere they have had been praised widely by Nick Cave, Jim Thirlwell and M.I.A. and count Jason Pierce (Spacemen 3 / Spiritualized), Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie, Nik Void of Factory Floor and Savages as fans.

Sum 41 [Order In Decline]

July 19 street date. 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 its most dynamic and raw. For Fans Of: The Used, The Offspring, Blink 182, Good Charlotte Touring Highlights: Headlining the “No Personal Space” tour from April to May of 2019. Also on the Rockstar Energy Disrupt Festival lineup from June to July of 2019.

Tomb Mold [Planetary Clairvoyance]

July 19 street date. (Hugely anticipated third album from Toronto death metal band follows widely praised album from last year. First vinyl press comes w/ bonus gatefold insert with additional artwork) Recklessly devouring the world into a vortex of alternate dimensional planes with Manor Of Infinite Forms, Tomb Mold has crashed through boundaries with the impact of an ocean-sized asteroid. Somewhere between outer space, inner space and the unseen dark matter in between all space, they’ve devised an alchemical formula both crushingly oppressive and rapidly expanding outward in every direction. Waking from stasis for the third time in three years, their new record Planetary Clairvoyance is the sum total of knowledge gained and aeons absorbed, concentrated into a single massive tome of arcane wisdom and implausible physics. Like the album’s cover art, it exists in a domain of alien anatomical abnormality, malign flora and cold void desolation, warping and deforming the familiar into unknown obscurity. Tracked in Canada and then mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk once again, the amalgamation of the huge sound of Manor Of Infinite Forms and the gritty particle chaos of Primordial Malignity come into boundless unity on this latest. With the explosive weight of a collapsing black hole, Tomb Mold accelerate unhinged toward infinite resurrection.
Tuxedo [Tuxedo III]

July 19 street date. Bonding over a shared love of Chic, Parliament and the other signs in the greater funk Zodiac, Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus), collectively known as Tuxedo, return with their third studio album, "Tuxedo III" released on the Tuxedo-owned and newly launched label, Funk on Sight. Their powers combined have yet again yielded a bevy of absolute slappers that are packaged perfectly for dance floors in 2019. The album includes features from MF DOOM, DaM-FunK, Leven Kali, Benny Sings, Gavin Turek and others. Tuxedo is back to remind you that the dance floor will always be there to welcome you, whoever you are.
V/A [Optimism/Reject (4CD): Punk & Post-Punk Meet DIY Aesthetic 1977-1981]

July 26 street date. The highly anticipated companion to 2017's "To The Outside Of Everything"! In the wake of punk, musicians in the UK found themselves suddenly liberated artistically and free to think in new terms commercially. The outcome was the independent label boom, and beyond that a certain Do It Yourself aesthetic. Overnight, the possibility arose of recording your own music and releasing your own record, or, if you weren’t musical yourself, setting up your own label to release records by people who were. Enabled by a new independent distribution network, classified ads in Britain's music press and the enthusiasm of record shop owners countrywide, a new kind of musician leapt into the spotlight, free of the shackles of commercial aspirations and the conformist musical approaches they necessitated. New sounds were delivered every week, pressed onto cheaply produced 7" singles and ambitious compilations by bedroom based labels. Among the photocopied sleeves and inserts, hand-stamped labels and SAE addresses, not to mention the eclectic range of sounds they accompanied, a common ground appeared: it didn’t matter what you did, so long as you did it yourself. "Optimism/Reject" captures a snapshot of that time and place. From scratchy lo-fi guitar pop to ambitious home productions and experimental meanderings, this is the sound of an underworld beneath the underground. A place so far from the mainstream only those with a keen imagination figured out how to get there. 4 CD's, with over a hundred self-released missives, lo-fi manifestos, boutique label offerings, and expressions from the edge of punk and the post-punk explosion. Features classics, rarities and unearthed gems from The Fall, Subway Sect, Sisters Of Mercy, The Raincoats, Young Marble Giants, John Cooper Clarke, and many, many more!
V/A [Come On Let's Go!: Power Pop Gems From the 70s & 80s]

August 2 street date. "Power pop is what we play", declared Pete Townshend in a 1967 interview to promote the Who's ‘Pictures Of Lily’. Although the term power pop did not gain much traction at the time, it re-emerged at the beginning of the 70s after the Beatles had dissolved and music began to fracture into various camps. In the USA, bands that remained true to the Beatles tradition began to be referred to as power pop. The Raspberries set the ball rolling in 1972, and young bands began to spring up who really only wanted to sing about girls and having a good time on Saturday night. 24 tracks, including songs by The Dwight Twilley Band, The Flamin' Groovies, Van Duren & Jody Stephens, Big Star, Shoes, 20/20, and many more.
