Monday - Saturday : 11:30 - 7:30pm
Sunday : 12pm - 5pm

On Tuesday August 4th at Monroe County Public Library, there is an author talk with Jessica Hopper. Music and culture critic Jessica Hopper (Senior Editor at Pitchfork) reads from her new book, The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic. Through a vast range of album reviews, essays, columns, interviews, and oral histories, Hopper chronicles what it is to be truly obsessed with music, the ideas in songs and albums, how fantasies of artists become complicated by real life, and just what happens when you follow that obsession into muddy festival fields, dank basements, corporate offices or court records. 6:30pm at MCPL on 8/4!

New Releases - July 31st

Titus Andronicus - The Most Lamentable Tragedy (Merge)

A rock opera in five acts, the central narrative of TMLT ("a work of fiction," claims singer/songwriter Patrick Stickles) concerns an unnamed protagonist whom we meet in deep despair. Following an encounter with his own doppelganger (an enigmatic stranger, identical in appearance though opposite in disposition), long held secrets are revealed, sending our protagonist on a transformative odyssey, through past lives and new loves, to the shocking revelation that the very thing that sustains him may be the thing to destroy him. Available as 2CD or 3LP.

Buddy Guy - Born to Play Guitar (RCA)

Born To Play Guitar is produced by Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and Buddy's longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge. The recent recipient of the 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Buddy Guy's incredible career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include 7 Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards, Kennedy Center Honors, NARM Chairman's Award for Sustained Creative Achievement, Billboard Music Awards' Century Award for distinguished artistic development, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.

Jessie Jones - s/t (Burger)

Reveling in the quantum wobble of her own alternative reality, Jones (formerly of Feeding People) is now releasing her self-titled debut on Burger Records by channeling the voices in her head; not quite the sanitarium blues of Roky Erickson, but a melange of Jim Morrison mysticism; a more stripped-down MGMT meets early-Grouplove; and Syd Barrett reverie. Under the guidance of producer Bobby Harlow (The Go) and Burger's Studio B, Jones' debut this summer will include guest appearances by drummer Duke Mushroom, violinist Hannah Glass, and Studio B regular King Tuff.

Led Zeppelin - Presence / In Through / Coda [reissues] (Atlantic)

Presence, In Through The Out Door, and Coda have been remastered for 2015 by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by companion audio comprised of previously unreleased music. The companion audio for Presence has 5 unreleased mixes from the sessions, which reveal works in progress. Along with alternate incarnations of For Your Life, Achilles Last Stand and Royal Orleans, there is also the previously unheard instrumental curiously titled 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod. In Through features an unreleased rough mix of every track from the original album, including early versions with working titles such as The Hook (All My Love), The Epic (Carouselambra), and Blot (I'm Gonna Crawl). The reissue campaign ends with a double-barrel blast. Coda is the only deluxe edition to include 2 companion discs, featuring 15 tracks recorded between 1968-74. The oldest song in the collection is also perhaps the most interesting. The frenetic blues jam Sugar Mama was recorded in 1968 at Olympic Studios during sessions for the band's eponymous debut. The song was completed but never officially released until now. Baby Come On Home from the same session is also included in the set. Also included is the previously unreleased St. Tristan's Sword, a rollicking instrumental recorded during the III sessions in 1970.

Daniel Romano - If I've Only One Time Askin (New West)

Not quite country, Americana, folk, singer-songwriter or pop, Daniel Romano's expansive new album is pieces of each, but ultimately the work of a singular mind. Already hailed by Rolling Stone, the 11 songs "lead their baritone-voiced creator down a path filled with countrypolitan crooning, honky-tonk heartache and mid-century melodrama." In the two years since his previous album, Romano has toured extensively, supporting and collaborating with a wide spectrum of artists from Old Crow Medicine Show, Wanda Jackson, Hurray For The Riff Raff, and Caitlin Rose.

Joss Stone - Water For Your Soul (Kobalt)

Water For Your Soul is a culmination in Joss Stone's travels in sound, demonstrating how the teen soul prodigy has blossomed into an artist of style and substance. This is an album that pulses with the liquid groove of reggae, dazzles with the mix and match sonic adventure of hip hop, shimmers with the exotic sounds of world music and delivers the emotional belt of R&B. The sound expanded to include Indian tabla, Bengali lute, Bansuri flute, African and Asian percussion, plus gospel choirs, New Orleans horns and full orchestra.

Health - Death Magic (Loma Vista)

Health formed in 2006 around the noise/punk scene emerging from downtown LA club The Smell. The four-piece combine incredible musicality (vocals, drums, guitars, bass & keys) with visceral electronics to form a sound unlike anything in music today, forging heavy rock and experimental electronic elements. Fans include Trent Reznor (Health toured with NIN), Adult Swim & Eric Wareheim, and a global audience.

Teenage Time Killers - Greatest Hits Vol 1 (Rise)

The long-gestating brainchild of Corrosion Of Conformity vocalist Reed Mullin, guitarist Mick Murphy (My Ruin, The Birds of Satan, Neanderthal) and producer John "Lou" Lousteau, Teenage Time Killers have 20 concise seismic shocks created by an all-star line up of punk and metal legends spanning decades. Joining Reed on drums and Mick on guitar are Jello Biafra, Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Dave Grohl and Pat Smear of Foo Fighters, Nick Oliveri, Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Tommy Victor of Prong and Danzig, Lee Ving of Fear, Mike Williams of Eyehategod, Mullin's Corrosion of Conformity bandmates and many more.
