Atmosphere [WORD? (2LP)]

October 8 street date. Following their last release, "The Day Before Halloween" - an imaginative, distorted-synth-driven concept album - Atmosphere returns with a refreshing new project, simply titled "WORD?". Steering back toward their signature sound, the album further highlights producer Ant's undeniable talents as the project leans into the classic boom-bap aesthetic, bringing a unique energy out of Slug's wisdom, wit and delivery. From onset, "WORD?" proves to be every bit an exercise in refining and advancing their craft as it is a harkening to earlier work. That is, while their releases have grown more broodingly cinematic, and increasingly concerned with the human condition and mortality, "WORD?" manages to reintroduce moments of levity and lightheartedness throughout, an approach seldom heard on their albums of late. Ultimately, "WORD?" pairs the breadth of Atmosphere's talents with the beauty of their growth, all while showing they still have a lot of fun in the process and don't mind letting the listener in on the fun as well.
Bob's Burgers [The Bob's Burgers Music Album Vol. 2 (3LP box)]

Please note new street date: September 24. "The Bob's Burgers Music Album Vol. 2" includes nearly every single musical morsel from seasons 7 through 9.

This includes actors, comedians, and musicians Adam Driver, Tiany Haddish, Jenny Slate, Daveed Diggs, Max Greenfield, Toddrick Hall, Aparna Nancherla, and Matt Berninger (of the National). For fans of the show, enjoying the music of Bob's Burgers on its own is both an irresistible to-go bag and ultimately a world unto itself. Lose yourself in the strangely epic disco celebration "Hot Pants Rain Dance", sing along with the musical theater gem, "The Wedding Is My Warzone", or do whatever you're gonna do to "Sexy Little Tiger", but don't miss "The Bob's Burgers Music Album Vol. 2". The 3 LP box set edition includes a box containing a rigid book-style LP jacket with lyric book, 62-page softcover song book, two posters, die-cut colourform clings, and custom dust sleeves.
Boy Scouts [Wayfinder]

Please note new street date for vinyl: October 22 / October for CD. On "Wayfinder", the follow-up to the acclaimed 2019 album "Free Company", Oakland-based songwriter Taylor Vick, under her songwriting moniker Boy Scouts, chases down life's queries to the very edge of the horizon. This is an album that's not afraid to track down what it all means - how life unspools around the monoliths of love and death, the heavy knots of even quotidian conflict, the task of carrying your own suffering with you day after day, the challenge of meeting other people out here in the tangled expanse of living. In a warm, expansive style that recalls the raw punctures of Lucinda Williams and Alex G, Vick once again shows herself to be a fearless seeker shedding light on the unanswerable. Vick's true superpower is her voice. Strands of slide guitar, organ, and strings ring under her affable, expressive voice, bolstering layers and layers of harmony. There is something so honest about her songs, they feel like a late-night therapy session with your best friend.
Charles, Ray [True Genius (6CD/book/box)]

September 10 street date. In celebration of what would have been Ray Charles' 90th birthday, Tangerine Records, the label he founded in 1962, is proud to announce the September 10, 2021 release of "True Genius" - the ultimate Ray Charles collection. Featuring 90 of his greatest songs and most important recordings of his legendary career, this newly remastered six CD box set includes all of his biggest hits, along with a special bonus disc of eight previously unreleased tracks, recorded live in Stockholm in 1972. This incredible bonus disc is only available with the purchase of the physical box set. This limited edition 6 CD box set also contains a beautifully designed "coffee table" 44 page book that includes rare, unseen photos and other Charles memorabilia, with liner notes written by Ray Charles Foundation President Valerie Ervin, legendary writer A. Scott Galloway and a special message from the one and only Quincy Jones.
Circuit Des Yeux [io]

October 22 street date. Matador Records is thrilled to announce the release of "-io", the sixth album by vocalist and composer Haley Fohr, best known as Circuit des Yeux. A celebrated figure in Chicago's music community, Circuit des Yeux has released acclaimed albums via De Stijl, Thrill Jockey, and Drag City and toured throughout the world. "-io" is her most ornate and elaborate work to date - a set of compositions that nest Fohr’s otherworldly four-octave voice amid a 24-piece string, brass, and wind ensemble. The album was put to tape last fall by Cooper Crain at Chicago's Electrical Audio studio and mixed by Marta Salogni (Bjork, Holly Herndon) with Fohr acting as arranger and producer. Written in the wake of personal loss and recorded in the midst of the pandemic, "-io" maps a geography of grief - a place where "everything is ending all the time". While Fohr's music has never been short on ambition, these songs are striking in their brilliance and strangeness. On "-io", Circuit des Yeux has delivered a work that is vivid, immense, and fully illuminated.
Edwards, Kathleen [Failer (orange vinyl)]

October 8 street date. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards will release a FIRST TIME PRESSING of her widely-celebrated debut album "Failer", originally released in 2002. Heralded by Pitchfork as an "accomplished debut," the album will be available on 140gram "orange crush" vinyl.
Explosions In the Sky [Big Bend (An Original Soundtrack for Public Television) (2LP-black)]

October 1 street date. In 2019, Explosions In The Sky was approached to craft the score to a new documentary about a place with which, as native Texans, they were very familiar: Big Bend National Park The hour-long film intimately follows the lives of native animals amid expansive aerial views of the iconic desert landscape that makes up one of the grandest natural wonders in the world. The band set these sights to an inspired, melodic, and meaningful blend of acoustic guitar, slide guitar, strings, piano, bells, and drums that feels as alive and diverse - and vast and lonely - as the place it depicts. "Big Bend (An Original Soundtrack for Public Television)" takes that mesmerizing score and recontextualizes it as a standalone album. Those brief cues have been expanded and transformed into a thoughtful, gorgeous full-length album that recalls some of the band's most magical and memorable moments from their storied history.
Grouper [Shade]

October 22 street date. The 12th full-length by Pacific Northwest artist Liz Harris aka Grouper is a collection of songs spanning fifteen years. She characterizes "Shade" as an album about respite, and the coast, poetically and literally. How one frames themselves in a landscape, how in turn it frames themselves; memories and experiences carried forward mapping a connection to place. Songs touch on loss, flaws, hiding places, love. Deep connections to the Bay Area, and the North Coast, with its unique moods of solitude, beauty, and isolation - a place described and transformed by the chaos and power of rivermouth, wild maritime storms, columns of mist that rise up unexpectedly on the road at night. Throughout, Harris threads a hidden radiant language of voice, disquiet, and guitar, framed by open space and the sense of being far away.
Guided By Voices [It's Not Them. It Couldn't Be Them. It Is Them!]

October 22 street date. It's been just a few months since Guided By Voices' faux rock opera "Earth Man Blues" garnered four-star and five-star reviews, with Rolling Stone proclaiming that it "squarely hits all the marks that make Guided By Voices great - again and again and again". "Again and again and again" is perhaps GBV's credo, with Robert Pollard's never-ending supply of fascinating and supremely catchy rock. Just when one thinks one's got them pinned down, album number thirty-four opens with bizarre percussion, mariachi trumpets, strings and acoustic guitar. The adventurous spirit pervades yet another killer album from the greatest and most versatile GBV line-up. The golden boys (Doug Gillard, Bobby Bare Jr., Mark Shue, Kevin March) can do no wrong. "It's Not Them. It Couldn't Be Them. It Is Them!" is a creative tourde-force full of surprises from the most prolific and captivating band on the planet.
Helado Negro [Far In (2LP)]

October 22 street date. When Roberto Carlos Lange, the musician known as Helado Negro, began writing 'Far In' immediately following the release of 'This is How You Smile' (spotlighted as Pitchfork's #7 "Best Album of 2019"), he could not have predicted that we would soon need to learn how to stay at home and be the stars of our domestic dance floors with intimates and online communities. Roberto and his partner, the visual artist Kristi Sword, had planned to visit Marfa, Texas for an early 2020 residency to work on their collaborative project 'Kite Symphony'. Once the pandemic hit, they decided to stay in Marfa through the summer, inspiring Roberto to write a significant amount of songs on the upcoming album. Driving back to Brooklyn in the fall inspired by his work in the desert, Roberto auspiciously purchased a Rhodes from a friend who 20 years earlier gave him his first synthesizer, an Arp Odyssey 2800. The electric piano was a catalyst that guided much of the remaining songwriting for the album.
Jerusalem In My Heart [Qalaq (180g)]

October 8 street date. One of the most renowned and uncompromising entities working in 21st century avant-garde Arab-Levantine art and music, Jerusalem In My Heart presents a new album of vital and haunting electronics and electroacoustics, framed by founder and producer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh's spoken and sung Arabic, buzuk-playing and sound design. "Qalaq" is the most distilled, variegated and finely wrought Jerusalem In My Heart album to date - featuring a different guest/collaborator on every track, yet as cohesive, emotionally resonant, sonically adventurous, and narratively powerful as any release in JIMH's celebrated discography. Guests across the album's 13 tracks include Moor Mother, Tim Hecker, Lucrecia Dalt, Greg Fox, Beirut, Alanis Obomsawin, Rabih Beaini, and many more. Moumneh initially through-composed "Qalaq" in purposely stark and skeletal form, then gave each guest artist a section to decompose, edit, re-interpret and recompose as they desired, working their stems back into his own mixes for each piece/section and moulding newfound coherences in the overall work.
KK's Priest [Sermons Of The Sinner (incl. CD)]

Please note new street date: October 8. KK's Priest, the band comprised of renowned former Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing and former vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens, is pleased to announce the release of their debut album "Sermons Of The Sinner". The album is an incredible collection of future metal classics, sure to be one of the stand-out metal releases of 2021. K.K Downing's genre-defining guitar style helped establish Judas Priest's iconic sound and helped propelled them to one of the top Heavy Metal bands of all-time, earning numerous accolades. Tim "Ripper" Owens fronted Judas Priest for eight years and recorded two studio albums ("Jugulator" and "Demolition") plus two live albums. They are joined by Tony Newton (Voodoo Six) on bass, A.J. Mills (Hostile) on guitar and Sean Elg (DeathRiders/Cage) on drums.
Lay, Shannon [Geist]

October 8 street date. "Geist" feels like a window - or a mirror - into possibilities of the self and beyond. Shannon Lay's new album is tender intensity, placeless and ethereal. It exists in the chasms of the present -- a world populated by shadow selves, spiritual awakenings, déjà vu, and past lives. "Something sleeps inside us", Lay insists on the opening track, and that's the guiding philosophy throughout. A winding, golden, delicate thread of intuition that explores the unknown, the possibility. Its title, "Geist", the German word for spirit, is rife with an otherworldly presence, the suggestion of another. The promise that you are never alone. As a whole, "Geist" is both esoteric and accessible. Features an impressive list of collaborators, including Ty Segall and members of Woods, Cibo Matto, Sharon Van Etten's band, Wand, Heatwarmer, Mega Bog, and Bonny Prince Billy. Limited first vinyl pressing is on on clear with orange and green vinyl.
McCaughan, Mac [The Sound Of Yourself]

September 24 street date. Throughout his career fronting Superchunk and Portastatic, Mac McCaughan has channeled more than his share of angst into a microphone, resulting in undeniable rock anthems. So how can a voice so familiar to others still seem foreign to its owner? On "The Sound of Yourself", McCaughan's second release under his own name, he explores that question fully, shooting his voice through a prism and refracting it across these songs in new and rewarding ways. McCaughan leaned into allowing randomness and accidents to catalyze his compositions. Instrumentals make up nearly half of "The Sound of Yourself", and are integral to the album's atmosphere. While the pop-oriented tracks hint at sounds explored on "Non-Believers", McCaughan's recent scoring work and frequent excursions with synthesizers and sequencers add a particularly crystalline spaciness akin to The Durutti Column and Bowie's Berlin trilogy.
Pixies [Trompe Le Monde (green/30th Anniversary edition)]

September 24 street date. For its 30th anniversary, Pixies 1991 album, "Trompe Le Monde", is being reissued on limited marbled green vinyl. "Trompe Le Monde" bookended a golden run of landmark records - a mini-album followed by four albums, released in quick succession - that cemented Pixies as one of the best for a generation. "Trompe Le Monde" showed the band still restless to push their sound forward. Recorded between Burbank, Paris, and London, with producer Gil Norton again at the controls, their fourth album is arguably their most playful, with Black Francis's lyrics on UFOs and conspiracy theories keeping things weird while power pop creeps in to amplify the space rock established on predecessor "Bossanova". Featuring singles "Planet of Sound," "Alec Eiffel," "Letter to Memphis," and a flawless cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain's "Head On," "Trompe Le Monde" goes full throttle with 15 tracks coming in a quickfire 40-minute salvo. Receiving critical praise at the time and being supported by a huge tour that included playing stadiums with U2, it also proved to be the end of act one for the band, with them taking over a decade before returning to the stage together.
Pond [9 (black vinyl)]

Please note new street date for LPs: October 15 / October 1 for CD. In Pond's universe nothing stays still for long. Although no one who heard 2019's "Tasmania" could possibly describe its pulsating psych-pop as straight, Pond wanted to try a more spontaneous way of working for their next record. Taking a leaf out of krautrock outliers Can's book, at the start of 2020, Pond embarked on a series of totally off-the-cuff jam sessions from which songs and ideas could be pulled out. Given the pace at which ideas whizz past your head, it makes for a dizzying listen. Opener "Song For Agnes" explodes out the speakers like an intergalactic rock opera, running a synapse-tingling gauntlet through bubbling synth pop, 80s hair metal and blissed out saxophone before you know what's hit you. It's an apposite curtain-raiser for an album that can encompass pounding techno, elastic hipped robo-funk, tripped out motorik, and acres more besides without even stopping for breath.
Public Service Broadcasting [Bright Magic (black)]

September 24 street date. London-based trio Public Service Broadcasting have created their own unique brand of art rock (call it History Rock) that dives deep into a historical subjects and creates a compelling body of work around the chosen theme. "Bright Magic" is named after a collection of short stories by Alfred Döblin. The album is primarily about Berlin as a magnet for creative people and creativity and the city as a canvas or a prism for refracting ideas and spreading them in new and interesting ways. As with all PSB releases there has been thorough research into the subject and a meticulous level of detail. The album was written and recorded entirely at Hansa Studios in Berlin and the artists resided there for the 6 month duration. Hansa is a world-renowned facility responsible for classic albums by the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Depeche Mode. The artwork was designed by Berlin artist Torsten Posselt, who has a long relationship with the Erased Tapes label, and has designed art for the likes of Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds, Kiasmos, and Rival Consoles among others.
Radiohead [Kid A Mnesia (3LP)]

November 5 street date. Radiohead announces "KID A MNESIA", a multiple format triple-album release marking the 21st anniversary of "Kid A" and "Amnesiac". "KID A MNESIA" collects Radiohead's fourth and fifth albums alongside the debut of a newly compiled third disc titled "Kid Amnesiae". Exclusive to this release, "Kid Amnesiae" is comprised of unearthed material culled from the "Kid A"/"Amnesiac" sessions. Along with alternate versions and elements of "Kid A" and "Amnesiac" album tracks and B-Sides, "Kid Amnesiae" features the never-before-heard "If You Say the Word" and a previously unreleased studio recording of "Follow Me Around".
Shad [TAO (blue vinyl)]

October 1 street date. Over the course of five records to date, JUNO Award-winning Toronto rapper Shad has used an array of old-school tools to tackle modern problems, addressing the indignities and absurdities of our world through a shapeshfiting melange of boom-bap breaks, dusty soul samples, jazzy improvisation, and 10 dollar words rolled into thousand-dollar rhymes. But after weaving his myriad musical and philosophical interests into a narrative socio-political song cycle - 2018's "A Short Story About a War" - Shad began building his sixth record, "TAO", from a much simpler concept: an image of a circle. Though, in true Shad fashion, he saw something much more profound within its basic round boundaries. On a track-by-track basis, "TAO" examines the many different fragments that make up who we are, forsaking the explicit narrative connectivity of "A Short Story About a War" for a more implicit thematic framework. And where its predecessor's intense subject matter naturally channeled a more intense, even aggressive spirit, the looser structure of "TAO" allows Shad to return to his "natural strike zone" of more playful, block-rocking bops - the sort of tracks that might make you smile and snicker even as they unpack such thorny topics as race, capitalism, and technological dependency.
Stevens, Sufjan & Angelo De Augustine [A Beginner's Mind (black)]

September 24 street date. It's been said that writing about music is like dancing about architecture (impossible and absurd). But what about singing about movies? Sufjan Stevens and Angelo De Augustine have paired up for a collaborative project that does just that. "A Beginner's Mind" is their debut album that contains 14 songs (loosely) based on (mostly) popular films. The source material is highbrow, lowbrow, and everything in between. The music is folksy, sweet, sincere and harmonically effervescent - Simon & Garfunkel with New Age flourishes. This album runs the gamut and has fun with it, even while its songwriters remain fully rooted in the melancholy folk idioms they are known for. By transforming old films into vital new songs, Stevens and De Augustine ask us to consider ourselves from a previously unconsidered vantage point - a new way of seeing and hearing - an exercise that's as necessary and relevant now as it's ever been.
Superchunk [Here's To Shutting Up (20th anniversary edition/LP+CD)]

October 22 street date. 20 year anniversary reissue of Superchunk's "Here's to Shutting Up" album. Each format will include a new ten-track bonus CD of acoustic demos, and the Peak Vinyl Indie Exclusive LP is pressed to colour vinyl with an exclusive poster insert as well.
Thrice [Horizons/East]

October 8 street date. To emerge from a global pandemic with a renewed sense of situational awareness, hard won insight, and a new album is the kind of move we've come to expect from Thrice over the last twenty years. With "Horizons/East", Dustin Kensrue and his bandmates address, with candor and courage, the fragile and awkward arrangements that pass for civilization, while inviting us to dwell more knowingly within our own lives. Without surrendering any of the energy and hard edge of their previous albums, they've given us a profoundly meditative work which serves as a musical summons to everyday attentiveness. Think Flying Lotus giving way to Elbow and setting the listener down in a new dimension. A self-recorded effort, "Horizons/East" conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination, and possibility.
V/A [Join The Ritual (glowing orb coloured)]

Please note new street date: October 1. "Join The Ritual", the third piece of Jagjaguwar's 25th anniversary celebration, looks to pay homage to the labels and artists that, whether they know it or not, invited Jagjaguwar to the table, to this wild, dark magic ritual of music. We're talking about independent titans like Drag City, Too Pure, K Records and Touch & Go. We're talking about heroes like R.E.M., Slint, Stereolab and Tracy Chapman. These songs captured the imaginations of Jagjaguwar's founders Darius Van Arman and Chris Swanson - and ultimately, opened up worlds to them. Highlights include The Besnard Lakes tackling Slint's "Good Morning, Captain", Jamila Woods covering Tracy Chapman's classic "Fast Car", Angel Olsen taking on Bill Callahan's "Cold Blooded Old Times", and Pink Mountaintops handling Teenage Fanclub's "The Concept".
