    JEFF TWEEDY - Together At Last - Anti
    Together At Last is a new album by songwriter and guitarist Jeff Tweedy. It features the Wilco bandleader performing eleven of his own songs, culled from the Wilco catalog as well as from side-projects Loose Fur and Golden Smog, in a solo acoustic setting. Recorded at Tweedy’s Chicago recording studio The Loft, Together At Last showcases Tweedy’s accomplished and intricate guitar playing and his expressive, plaintive voice, and while audiences have experienced Tweedy live onstage as a solo performer for years, this is the first studio recording of its kind for the acclaimed musician.

    JESSICA HERNANDEZ & THE DELTAS - Telephone

    JESSICA HERNANDEZ & THE DELTAS - TelephoneJESSICA HERNANDEZ & THE DELTAS - Telephone - Instant RecordsJESSICA HERNANDEZ & THE DELTAS - Telephone
    The Detroit band made their Instant Records debut with 2013’s DEMONS and 2014's SECRET EVIL. Hernandez, a second generation Cuban and Mexican-American, felt it her duty to further explore her own Hispanic heritage on The Deltas' sophomore recording. Personal and provocative, Telephone / Telefono is a milestone achievement for the band known for their soundclash of Goth pop, Latin rock, psychedelic surf, punk cabaret, dirty dancehall, and Hernandez's vocal power.

    Album is available on vinyl and in Spanish as part of a Double LP Set.

    KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD - Murder Of The Universe - ATO Records
    A concept album to end all concepts, Murder Of The Universe is the new collection by head-bending psychedelicists King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Murder Of The Universe is a face-melting musical assault concerned with the downfall of man, the death of the planet.... the murder of the whole goddamn universe. A disorientating experience, the album hinges on three distinct chapters that rise from larval beds, and whose lyrics should be carved in stone, squeezed from moss, discovered in ancient runes. And all the while a passing cast of characters imbue the tale with both human and non-human emotions.

    BONE THUGS - New Waves - Ent. One Music
    Bone Thugs and harmony are one of the best-selling rap groups of all time. Their Grammy® nominated album “E 199 Eternal” has sold over 8 million copies and they have 5 platinum albums to their credit. They have sold over 20 million albums worldwide and are the only group to have recorded with Eazy E, 2 Pac, Notorious B.I.G and Big Pun while they were still alive. They’ve had 10 #1 Billboard R&B singles and MTV called them the most melodic hip hop group of all time. Their own label MO THUGZ Records was extremely successful launching platinum solo albums by Krayzie Bone and Bizzy Bone. Their most recent album “UNI5: The World’s Enemy” was released on Warner Bros/Reprise in 2010, debuting #14 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. Bone ThugsNew Waves” is the proper follow up to “UNI5: The World’s Enemy”. Featuring the recorded reunion of Bizzy and Krayzie Bone, the album also includes performances from all the member of Bone Thugs and harmony. The album features melodic classics that all the Bone Thugs and Harmony fans love. The first 2 singles are homeruns. “Coming Home” featuring Stephen Marley and “I Wish Heaven Had A Cellphone” featuring Tank.

    THE DESLONDES - Hurry Home - New West Records
    The Deslondes are a five-piece band from New Orleans. In the time between the release of their self-titled debut and new sophomore album, Hurry Home, The Deslondes have toured the world and drawn critical acclaim for their studied and inventive take on New Orleans country and R&B. Hurry Home represents a sonic shift from the country-folk of their debut to a sometimes-psychedelic, electrified gospel-soul sound, with a stronger emphasis on organ and electric guitar. The band split up songwriting and lead vocal duties among its five members, continuing its democratic ethos and musical versatility. The sound may continue to draw comparisons to the country-funkiness of The Band, but The Deslondes were equally inspired by the sound of early Sun Records, the punchy rock and roll of VU-era Velvet Underground and the experimental pop of Joe Meek. Perhaps most importantly, Hurry Home is the sound of a band that understands the history of American music, but is deftly finding their own contemporary approach.

    MONKS - Hamburg Recordings 1967

    MONKS - Hamburg Recordings 1967MONKS - Hamburg Recordings 1967 - Third Man Records
    The Monks – a strange, rare group with a story that sounds like a drunk friend’s generous hyperbole. A group of American G.I.s stationed in Germany on the precipice of Western cultural revolution starts playing music loosely connected to the rock n’ roll craze, contrastingly incorporating a critical and often offensive avant-garde edge. Nothing was off limits — screeching vocals, dark aesthetics, staccato-strummed banjo, sardonic lyricism, critiques of the Vietnam War and full monk costuming down to the tonsure. When viewed on the whole, it seems like an art school student’s senior thesis on what the craze means and its future possibilities. Due in large part to original Polydor vinyl collectability and years in the word-of-mouth hype machine, their legend and cult status has steadily blossomed since their last shows in 1967. Fast forward to 2017, the crew at Third Man, already huge fans, are presented with an honest-to-God treasure trove of original Monks photos, newspaper clippings, business cards, letterhead, contracts, postcards and, yes, analog tapes, containing trailblazing, wild compositions completely unheard by public ears. “I’m Watching You” would have been recorded on February 28th, 1967 at the same sessions that would produce the Monks’ final single “Love Can Tame the Wild” b/w “He Went Down to the Sea.” The remaining four songs were recorded after hours in the Top Ten Club later that year, just prior to the break-up of the band. These songs have been unreleased for 50 years and are quite possibly the last music left to be heard by this legendary band.
