On Duets: Re-Working The CatalogueVan Morrison and the guests selected and recorded some of his songs from the catalog of 360 songs across his career. Deliberately steering away from his more well-known classics, Van enlisted some of the artists he most respects to perform these songs with him to re-craft and re-imagine them. The album was recorded in his home town of Belfast and London in the United Kingdom over the last year, using a variety of musicians and fresh arrangements.

The UK rock trio's sixth studio album produced by Ric Ocasek of the Cars! It follows 2013’s career spanning ‘Payola’ collection and 2012’s Top 10 album ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’ and the first for new North American label Arts & Crafts.

THE GO! TEAM - THE SCENE BETWEEN - Memphis Industries
Last album Rolling Blackouts became a natural end chapter for The Go! Team with members splintering off into different musical projects, get married, teach, experience real life. Bandleader Parton took the opportunity to return to the working methods he’d used at the origins of the band – crate digging, trying to nail a feeling, writing and recording the album by himself.

Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Carrie & Lowell sounds like memory: it spans decades yet does not trade on pastiche or nostalgia. Stevens's gauzy double-tracked vocals wash across the dashboard of long-finned, drop-top Americana, yet as we race towards the coast we are reminded that sunshine leads to shadow, for this is a landscape of terminal roads, unsteady bridges, traumatic video stores, and unhappy beds that provide the scenery for tales of jackknifed cars, funerals, and forgiveness for the dead.
Death Cab For Cutie - Kintsugi Death Cab For Cutie - Kintsugi
New CD: $18.98   $16.98
KINTSUGI, which follows 2011s GRAMMY® Award-nominated CODES AND KEYS marks Death Cab for Cutie s first new album since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla. Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them. As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an objects history.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress
New CD: $15.98
Godspeed You! Black Emperor (GYBE) returns with its first single LP-length release since the group's earliest days in 1997-99. 'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress' clocks in at a succinct 40:23 and is arguably the most focused and best-sounding recording of the band's career. Following Godspeed's return from a long hiatus at the end of 2010 to begin playing live shows again, and with the hugely acclaimed 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend! release in 2012 marking their first new release in a decade, the group slowly and steadily put the new album together through late 2013 and 2014.

The Prodigy - The Day Is My Enemy The Prodigy - The Day Is My Enemy
New CD: $13.98
“I didn’t plan this album to sound violent, it’s just the sound that came out of the studio, a kind of build up over the last 4 years,” says Liam Howlett of the upcoming LP. “The tension is buried deep in the music right from the first drop. It’s all about the sound having that sense of danger. That’s what THE PRODIGY sound is about.”

Wale - The Album About Nothing Wale - The Album About Nothing
New CD: $18.98   $16.98
Wale’s fourth studio album, “The Album About Nothing”, serves as part 3 of Wale’s “About Nothing” music series. #TAAN may be the most personal album Wale has released to date and is most important to his core fans, as it follows two mixtapes (“mixtape about nothing” & “more about nothing”) that were also centered around this theme. The play on the “album about nothing” is that the album is about “everything”. There is no theme to life; therefore there is no theme to this album.
Darius Rucker - Southern Style Darius Rucker - Southern Style
New CD: $10.99
Three Days Grace - Human Three Days Grace - Human
New CD: $11.96
Canadian Rockers Three Days Grace reveal the title of their forthcoming album - HUMAN - due out March 31st on RCA.

New CD: $14.98   $13.98
No News From Home is the 2nd LP from Portland, Oregon quartet Houndstooth and the follow-up to Ride Out The Dark. That record was labeled "one of 2013's all too overlooked delights" by SPIN while their hometown Portland Mercury called it "an extraordinarily good album, a perfect representation of the band's trademark balancing of ease and passion." News is an altogether more mature record that widens the bands sound: from Velvets-style churners to shimmering, breezy, love songs, all penned by songwriting duo John Gnorski and Katie Bernstein.
Hollywood Undead - Day Of The Dead Hollywood Undead - Day Of The Dead
New CD: $13.99
Los Angeles based hip-hop/metal veterans Hollywood Undead have announced the release date of their forthcoming studio album, Day of the Dead. This is their fourth studio album.

Andrew Bird - Weather Systems Andrew Bird - Weather Systems
New CD: $11.98
Described by Pitchfork in 2003 as 'music for the ages that demands to be heard', the songs on Andrew Bird's second solo album reveal themselves at a confidant, unhurried pace reflecting the thoughtfulness with which they were conceived. Weather Systems originated in a barn converted to studio/living space in remote western Illinois, as creating music was becoming central to Bird s everyday life. The virtuoso instrumentalist employs violin, glockenspiel, organ, whistling, and tape loops to set the scene for the intimate, haunting stories he tells through his lyrics. It s a lush, gorgeous collection of seven original songs plus Bird's own adaptation of a Galway Kinnell poem and a Handsome Family cover 'Don't Be Scared' (which Andrew recorded again on his 2014 covers album, 'Things Are Really Great Here... Sort Of'), showcasing his gift for conveying subtle emotional states purely through music. Originally released in 2003.
Ron Sexsmith - Carousel One [Deluxe] Ron Sexsmith - Carousel One [Deluxe]
New CD: $16.98
Ron Sexsmith's new release on Compass Records, Carousel One, is the cherished Canadian crooner s first album in two years. It finds Sexsmith in surprising territory for a man often pegged as a downbeat balladeer: he s actually contented. The 16-track album is a warm, deeply involving set of songs that showcases Sexsmith s great empathy and occasional sentimentality, but also his often-overlooked playfulness. Carousel One (named for the luggage retrieval belt at Los Angeles airport where bags off Toronto flights are delivered) is probably the most diverse album of Sexsmith's nearly 20-year solo career.
Grateful Dead - The Best Of The Greatful Dead Grateful Dead - The Best Of The Greatful Dead
New CD: $19.98   $17.98
The Ultimate Gateway to the Grateful Dead featuring 2-CDs of the band's most iconic studio recordings. The collection's 32 tracks feature music from every Grateful Dead studio album and cover the key waypoints on the band's mystical musical journey. Arranged chronologically, the tracks reflect the evolution of the group's sound and its membership across more than two decades from 1967's The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion) to 1989's Standing on the Moon. In between, listeners will find the essential tracks that made the band such a cultural phenomenon, including such fan favorites as St. Stephen, Casey Jones, Sugar Magnolia, Friend of the Devil, Scarlet Begonias, and Hell In a Bucket.
The Soft Moon - Deeper The Soft Moon - Deeper
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
The voice of The Soft Moon has never been more clear and honest than it is on this record. With eerie, immersive tracks like the dogged "Far" and slow, beautifully melancholic "Wasting" (the first track written for Deeper), the album is a penetrating portrait of Vasquez as he wrestles thoughts of suicide, vulnerability and what it means to heal. By facing the most hopeless parts of himself without illusion and putting his past demons to bed, the creation of Deeper was an intense personal exploration of existence for Vasquez -- old wounds were forcibly opened, deep anger and paranoia were manipulated into song -- and he did not emerge unchanged. Deeper may have delivered Vasquez back to the waking world, but it willingly drags us further into The Soft Moon's dark, euphonic universe once more.
Ride - OX4_The Best Of Ride - OX4_The Best Of
New CD: $13.98
To help celebrate the band's reunion, Rhino will reissue OX4, a 15-track best-of collection originally released in 2001, which has been out of print for several years. OX4 features selections from each of Ride's studio recordings, which are arranged chronologically to create an inspiring overview of the band's artistic evolution. The set opens with "Chelsea Girl" and "Drive Blind" from the group's self-titled debut EP, which was the first of three EPs that Ride released in 1990. The collection touches on the other two EPs with "Like A Daydream" from Play and "Taste" fromFall.
We Are Harlot - We Are Harlot We Are Harlot - We Are Harlot
New CD: $13.98
WE ARE HARLOT showcases the bands larger than life personalities and unrelenting desire for fun. Their mission to revive Rock N Roll is evident from the get-go as Worsnop’s swagger and power commands attention, while George’s guitar oozes with style and feel and Agra / Weaver provide the rhythmic flow and backbone for the album. “Denial”, the first track to be released off the record earlier in 2014 caught the attention of global entertainment company WWE, which picked the track to be the new theme song of its flagship television program Monday Night Raw. Other album standouts include, “Dirty Little Thing” and “Someday” which highlight We Are Harlot’s staggering versatility and see them fearlessly blasting off into a new stratosphere with power and excitement. First single is at Rock radio now and climbing the charts.
Lower Dens - Escape From Evil Lower Dens - Escape From Evil
New CD: $13.98
On Escape From Evil, Lower Dens Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. Hunter is stepping up and taking center stage has emboldened every other aspect of the band. Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is strong. Escape from Evil marks the follow-up to 2012 s Nootropics.
Teenage Bottlerocket - Tales From Wyoming Teenage Bottlerocket - Tales From Wyoming
New CD: $12.98
Every now and then a band comes along and speaks to the hearts of kids everywhere, as the true voice of their community. Teenage Bottlerocket is that band in the punk rock community right now. The band’s anthemic punk rock classics quickly catapulted them to the top of the scene, and before long the bands who inspired them had become their peers.
William Elliott Whitmore - Radium Death William Elliott Whitmore - Radium Death
New CD: $13.98
Known for the sparse, haunting qualities of his mostly solo recordings of what he refers to as “roots-folk music,” in which his husky voice is often accompanied by little more than a banjo or acoustic guitar, William Elliott Whitmore sought to add some new pitches to his bullpen for his new ANTI- release Radium Death.
Translator - Sometimes People Forget Translator - Sometimes People Forget
New CD: $16.98
Translator burst onto the music scene in 1982 with their radio/MTV hit “Everywhere That I’m Not”. Their prominence grew through their 4th major label release in 1986. 25 years later, they regrouped and made another stellar record—selling out shows. But, how did it all come to be? Omnivore Recordings is proud to translate with Sometimes People Forget, a collection of Translator demos that span the years from 1979 through 1985. These 22 tracks that found their way onto the band’s critically lauded canon and beyond, in the stages that brought them to indie prominence. Only two tracks have been previously issued on a rare compilation, the remaining 20 have never before been heard—until now!
Ryley Walker - Primrose Green Ryley Walker - Primrose Green
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Ryley Walker is the reincarnation of the true True American guitar player. That’s as much a testament to his roving, rambling ways, or as to the fact that his Guild D-35 guitar has endured a few stints in the pawnshop. No one knows what the future holds for young Ryley Walker. Hardship and setbacks and dilapidated housing uncertainty only seem to spur him on creatively. Here, with this record, we risk limiting his access to personal disaster by flirting with success. Here, with Primrose Green, we risk limiting his access to personal disaster by flirting with success.
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis - The Third Kitty, Daisy & Lewis - The Third
New CD: $11.98
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis return with their new album, three years on since their hugely acclaimed Smoking In Heaven . An early fan, Mick Jones of The Clash, was keen to get involved as producer and spent four months rehearsing in their home for the new album. Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third was recorded and finished in the summer of 2014 and sets them apart, embracing a spread of influences from blues to disco, but always sounding unmistakably Kitty Daisy & Lewis. The stories in this album resonate with moods and melodies that touch you in ways that are both uplifting and unnerving. With three different writers and multi-instrumentalists in the band, each track is a sparkling gem that reflects a different facet of experience.
Eliane Elias - Made In Brasil Eliane Elias - Made In Brasil
New CD: $18.98   $16.98
Eliane Elias Made in Brazil, marks a musical homecoming for the multi-GRAMMY®-nominated pianist/keyboardist/singer/composer. In her three-decade long career as a solo artist, Made in Brazil results from the first time she s recorded a disc in her native Brazil since moving to the United States in 1981.
Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks Vol.9: Madison Square Garden New York NY Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks Vol.9: Madison Square Garden New York NY
New CD: $49.98   $47.98
The signs were not exactly auspicious for the tribes trekking to Madison Square Garden for this mid-September 1990 show less than two months had passed since the death of Brent Mydland, Vince Welnick had taken over keyboard duties earlier in the month, and Bruce Hornsby had joined the band just the night before! But despite all the turmoil and turnover, the band gelled this night to a really remarkable degree, which is a testimony both to the Dead s musical chops and their indomitable, improvisational spirit. Welnick and Hornsby transform such warhorses as Little Red Rooster, Queen Jane Approximately, and Iko Iko into dazzling keyboard showcases, while the rest of the band and particularly Phil Lesh, who is just on fire throughout shines on such tunes as Tennessee Jed, Looks Like Rain and Morning Dew. The jams, including the whimsically titled No MSG Jam and Lunatic Preserve, are stellar as well there is a reason this was the first Dick s Pick to feature a concert from the 90s. Out of print for years!
Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks Vol.11: Stanley Theatre Jersey City NJ Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks Vol.11: Stanley Theatre Jersey City NJ
New CD: $49.98   $47.98
Dick s Picks Vol. 11 was not only the first concert from 1972 to be released in the series, but also was the first full concert from that hallowed year ever to be released by the Dead. At the time, it sparked some controversy it seemed like (and still does!) every Deadhead had his or her favorite 1972 show but as usual, compiler Dick Latvala came through with an (American) beauty, highlighted by one of the greatest Dark Star versions ever recorded, with a bonus of a one-time-only segue into Cumberland Blues. This volume also delivers an interesting set list marked by quite a bit of material from the debut solo albums by Jerry Garcia (Garcia) and Bob Weir (Ace), both of which had come out earlier that year. We ve seen quite a few folks claim this album actually tops Europe 72, but maybe a better way to put it is to say it complements it, with a bunch of new material added to the repertoire and a new, post-Pigpen line-up playing at a very high level on this side of the pond. Out of print for years!
Richie Furay - Hand In Hand Richie Furay - Hand In Hand

New CD: $18.98   $16.98
Born of the small but vibrant Brisbane punk/new wave scene of the late Seventies, Peter Milton Walsh began to cultivate the mysterious, moody myth that would follow him through out his career that has taken him around the world. But before setting out abroad, Walsh certainly made his mark on the Brisbaine scene. His band, The Apartments, formed in 1978 and spent the next year playing ample amounts of shows around Brisbaine.

Blind Boy Fuller - Rough Guide To Blind Boy Fuller Blind Boy Fuller - Rough Guide To Blind Boy Fuller
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Blind Boy Fuller was only 33 when he died, but during his short but prolific recording career he became one of the most influential and best-selling bluesmen of the pre-War period. Inspired by the legendary blues and evangelist guitarist Rev Gary Davis, Fuller developed a ragtime influenced fingerstyle guitar technique typical among East Coast bluesmen, which beautifully complimented his gritty and expressive voice. Armed with his steel National resonator guitar, Fuller had a huge repertoire of songs ranging from ragtime, hokum and traditional blues to gospel and other popular tunes of the time.

Very little is known about many of these featured early blues artists, other than the simple fact that their classic recordings are like arrows through time and have a cutting edge coolness which defies the age in which they were recorded. These tracks are essential listening for any blues connoisseur, and an adventure into some of the more hidden recesses of country blues. There is no space for the likes of Charley Patton, Robert Johnson or Son House in this roll of honour, as it’s time for the usual suspects to stand aside and let the limelight fall on some of the lesser-known country blues masters, whose brilliance has always been slightly under the radar.

Marching Church - This World Is Not Enough Marching Church - This World Is Not Enough
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Since 2010, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (Iceage, Vår) has used the Marching Church moniker to a variety of musical ends, both live and recorded. However, the project as it exists on This World Is Not Enough wasn't born until November 2013. With a live performance looming and no real idea what the set would be, Rønnenfelt found a new vision for the band while daydreaming at a gig at the venue where Marching Church was set to perform. "What I pictured was me in a comfortable armchair, adorned in a golden robe, leading a band while a girl kept pouring me champagne when I required it," Rønnenfelt explained. "This raised the question, 'What sort of music would go along with this picture?'"
Föllakzoid - III Föllakzoid - III
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Föllakzoid began seven years ago as a trance experience between childhood friends Diego, Juan Pablo, and Domingo from Santiago, Chile. Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate this influence with contemporary sounds of their times, creating a rich yet minimal atmosphere. III is a four-part minimal sound voyage in which you can hear Föllakzoid’s musical language developing into something more upbeat, obscure, and sharp, yet even simpler in terms of elements.
Take One Car - Everyone You Know Is Here Right Now Take One Car - Everyone You Know Is Here Right Now
New CD: $13.98
Take One Car are a post-hardcore quartet from upstate New York that has built a dedicated following by relentless DIY touring and self releasing their music for the past 7 years. The band's previous LP, 2012's "It's Going to Be a Nice Day," was self-released on vinyl by the band itself and has sold hundreds of copies through touring alone. "Everyone You Know Is Here Right Now" pushes the band's masterfully crafted and dynamic sound further into the territories of bands like mewithoutYou, La Dispute, and Unwound. An undeniably great record start to finish.
Reptar - Lurid Glow Reptar - Lurid Glow
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Synth-pop dance party band Reptar returns with their second full length, Lurid Glow, out March 17th 2015 on Joyful Noise Recordings. Lurid Glow continues the exploratory and arousing spirit of their 2012 debut Body Faucet, 2012. Graham Ulicny (singer-guitarist), Andrew McFarland (drums), Ryan Engelberger (Bass), and William Kennedy (analog keyboards) succeed once again in bringing world dance parties into the post-rock realm. Lurid Glow continues Reptar s exploration of afro-beat indie electro-pop with a heart. While the scope of this album is broader than Body Faucet it retains the earnestness of a band just wanting to have a good time and make you feel good enough to shake your money-maker.
Yonatan Gat - Director [Vinyl] Yonatan Gat - Director [Vinyl]
New Vinyl: $18.98
Master guitarist, Yonatan Gat (Monotonix) is back with 11 new punk inspired, improvisational, psychedelic mind melters. Recorded live by Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees) in less than 3 days during a US tour, the band went into the studio with just a few songs and ideas. The goal was to capture the riotous and intricate improvisations of the band’s live show. Inspired by soundtrack virtuosos like Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, Director is edited as a cinematic circular journey around the world, East to West and North to South. This journey is interconnected by field recordings that Gat has taken during his travels, giving it a feeling of space and time. The result is a genre-bending opus that finds the band seamlessly exploring different styles of music from Brazilian psych and Afrobeat to free jazz, surf and 20th century avant-garde, sometimes in the span of just one song. Gat's wildly inventive, reverb-drenched guitar offensive takes simultaneous lead and rhythm duties, backed by Gal Lazer's hard-hitting African-inspired grooves, and Sergio Sayeg's (of Brazilian garage rockers Garotas Suecas) pumping bass.
Merchandise - (Strange Songs) In The Dark Merchandise - (Strange Songs) In The Dark
New CD: $14.98   $13.98
Back in print and readily available (for perhaps the first time), we have Merchandise’s debut LP (Strange Songs) In The Dark. The album, recorded in early 2010, marks a decisive break from the band’s straightforward early post-punk EP’s, moving instead toward the more experimental studio-based pop constructions that would be further explored in the subsequent Children of Desire and Totale Nite albums. (Strange Songs) was recorded by the core duo of Carson Cox and David Vassalotti. Despite the lo-fi nature of this home recording, there are tons of hooks to be found amidst the haze (notably “I Locked the Door” and “Worthless Apology”). Occasionally veering into abstractions, the album as a whole is a piece that warrants listening as such. It’s a sad bastard of a record, but one with plenty of range and ideas. Not rehash but reimagination. Many moments on (Strange Songs) In The Dark (especially the moody “Foolish” and “In The Dark”) foreshadow Merchandise’s eventual signing to the 4AD label. Fans of the band’s later albums will find much to enjoy on this early effort. [[Originally a split release between DIY punk labels Katorga Works and Drugged Conscience Records.]]

Sneaky Feelings - Send You [Remastered] Sneaky Feelings - Send You [Remastered]
New CD: $16.98
`Over the years there has been a lot of talk about the so-called `Dunedin sound'. Dunedin's Sneaky Feelings were a band whose ambitions and interests went much wider than any generic `sound'; they would even come to be regarded as something of an anomaly on Flying Nun, home to the Dunedin sound. And yet their first album seemed to epitomise that sound, whatever it was. One of the first long-players released on the fledgling label, Send You was emblematic. The early Flying Nun bands could be divided into two kinds: those like The Clean, who accepted their limitations and made the most of them, and others, like Sneaky Feelings whose ambitions out-stripped their limited recording budgets. Consequently their later records sometimes sounded a few thousand dollars short of the masterpieces they might have been. As for Send You, it will jangle forever as one of New Zealand's essential albums.' - Extract from Nick Bollinger's `Send You' liner notes

New Blu-Ray: $39.98
HBO premieres the third season of the Emmy®-nominated comedy series created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar® nominee for co-writing In the Loop) that takes a sharp, satirical look at the insular world of Washington politics. Following the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus in her Emmy®-winning role), Veep hilariously skewers everyday office politics, against the backdrop of the second highest office in the land. After the revelation at the end of Season 2 that the president will not run for reelection, Season 3 begins with Selina, eying a promotion, courting Iowa caucus voters at a signing for her new book, Some New Beginnings. Soon, Selina and her staff, back in D.C. for Mike’s (Matt Walsh) wedding, learn that Secretary of Defense Maddox is resigning – setting Selina up for a possible run in the presidential primaries against Maddox and her nemesis, war-vet Danny Chung. Over the course of this season’s 10 episodes, Selina and her staff will set up an exploratory campaign office in D.C. and travel to Silicon Valley (to raise money) and London (to meet with heads of state), while Amy (Anna Chlumsky) and Dan (Reid Scott) vie to be Selina’s campaign manager. As always, Veep will continue to show that in Washington, even the most banal decisions can have ripple effects, with unexpected and far-reaching consequences.

Stuck working part-time at a large tech company called Hooli, Richard’s obscure website, Pied Piper, is going nowhere fast. But when a mid-level Hooli executive named Jared is apprised of the value of the site’s novel compression algorithm, Richard finds himself caught in the middle of an extreme bidding war between Hooli founder Gavin Belson and independent billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory.
