New Releases - August 26th

Hoops - s/t EP (Fat Possum)

Bloomington's Hoops started when guitarist Drew Auscherman began making ambient noise. Hoops took full form in 2014 with the addition of bassist Kevin Krauter, drummer James Allen, and guitarist Keagan Beresford. In February, Fader premiered, "Feelin Fine", writing "[the song] is an aural capsule of summer; it's built on speedy, luminous guitar work and some murky melodies- the latter a little bit reminiscent of Real Estate's groggy earliest output." NME proclaimed, "A shimmering and playful mix incorporating the best bits of acts like Felt and Ariel Pink - instantly stood out to me, sounding about as lo-fi as you can get but mightily ambitious and with strong melodies all over the place."

Cass McCombs - Mangy Love (Anti)

Over the past decade, Cass has established himself as one of our premier songwriters. It's a career that's twisted and turned, from style to subject, both between records and within them. Mangy Love ventures into realms of experimental soul, twisted psychedelia, and straight-up rock, resulting in a sound that articulates his live show better than ever before. Thematically, it's far darker, tackling heavy issues through his uniquely cracked lens of lyrical wit and acumen toward subtlety. His most immediate and upbeat record to date.

De La Soul - and the Anonymous Nobody (Kobalt)

Ninth album from the hip hop trio and their first studio album in 4 years. Includes the single Pain featuring Snoop Dogg. The album also features Jill Scott, Usher, Justin Hawkins (The Darkness) and others. As the band states in their press release: Over the last three years, we've collaborated with some of LA's finest studio musicians and recorded them in free-styled, unrehearsed, jam sessions. We have a fantastic cast of artist we've collaborated with. Damon Albarn (of Blur/Gorillaz), 2 Chainz, Little Dragon, and David Byrne (of Talking Heads) have blessed us with their talents.

Subrosa - For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages (Profound Lore)

Salt Lake City's Subrosa are one of America's most singular doom / chamber-metal bands. Their 2013 breakthrough album, More Constant Than The Gods, garnered the five-piece (including two electric violinists) acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR, Decibel, Rolling Stone, and Entertainment Weekly, to name just a few. In the wake of that album, they toured with bands such as Boris, Deafheaven, and Cult Of Luna. With this latest album, they've crafted their most triumphant and biggest release to date- it is their masterpiece and establishes them as one of the most important American heavy metal bands today.

Morgan Delt - Phase Zero (Sub Pop)

The invocation of classic west coast psychedelia that permeates Morgan Delt's Sub Pop debut LP feels like a continuous sunrise, never concealing its influences yet perfectly putting its songs through a gauzy lens that blurs and obscures. The California native now fine-tunes his sound world outwardly rather than honing in on a specific trajectory, allowing all of said influences to coexist together in a unique yet undoubtedly Californian vision. Doused in echo and haze, slow chords lap in like Pacific waves, flanked by gentle whispers of multi-tracked, cooing vox, phased guitars and fuzz that calmly surrounds the listener's head less than it jabs at the cortex.

The Album Leaf - Between Waves (Relapse)

We are nearly 20 years into a career that has seen Jimmy LaValle exercising his creativity across the realms of film scoring, sound collage, and electronic / rock music, via instrumental and vocal-driven compositions alike. Born out of a thorough reinvention of LaValle's creative process and approach, Between Waves is his first proper album in over 6 years and the first to be recorded and produced as a complete band, and was written with greater emphasis on the group dynamic. The album displays multifaceted, meticulous sound design, a keen ear for balancing disparate influences, and the strongest senses of dynamics, rhythm, and composition they've displayed to date.

Joseph - I'm Alone, No You're Not (ATO)

Joseph is a bewitching trio of sisters from Portland, Oregon. Expect honest words and genetically perfected harmonies. For their ATO Records debut I'm Alone, No You're Not, the band teamed with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, First Aid Kit) to record 11 original songs exploding with a mystical exuberance and heart-on-sleeve emotion. A masterclass in pristine 3-part harmony, the album features golden, shimmering pop songs tucked next to the most delicate ballads: love lost and found, amplified by three unwavering voices. Free bonus live EP with purchase!

Banks & Steelz - Anything but Words (WB)

The most unlikely pairing of the year? A musical collaboration between Wu Tang Clan's RZA and Interpol's Paul Banks. RZA and Banks first began working on music together in 2013. Features Kool Keith, Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine), Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Masta Killa.

Beach Boys - Complete Hite & Dorinda Morgan Sessions (Omnivore)

In September of 1961 Al Jardine, Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, and Mike Love stepped up to a microphone together for the first time at the home of Hite and Dorinda Morgan to demo The Beach Boys' first 3 songs. Between that September date and March 1962, before signing a 7-year contract with Capitol Records on May 24, 1962, they committed 9 songs to tape under the direction of Hite and Dorinda Morgan. Some iconic, others obscure- Surfin', Luau, Lavender, Surfin' Safari, Surfer Girl, Judy, Beach Boy Stomp (aka Karate), Barbie, and What Is A Young Girl Made Of- Every complete take, false start, master take, and every second of studio banter during these historic recordings is gathered on this landmark 2CD collection.

Glass Animals - How To Be A Human Being (Harvest)

Hugely anticipated sophomore release from 2015's break through band, who's debut album Zaba produced the alt radio smash "Gooey" and has so far sold nearly half a million copies worldwide and amassed a staggering 200 million streams. Their rise has gained the Oxford quartet a legion of fans all over the world, including festival appearances at the likes of Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Glastonbury. Free bonus 7" with purchase.

Butch Walker - Stay Gold (Dangerbird)

As a writer of dozens of songs with hooks that stick in your head, Rolling Stone has called Butch Walker, "one of America's best singer-songwriters," as he has penned choruses you want to sing (or shout) along to from acts including Frank Turner, Brian Fallon, Taylor Swift, and many more. He is a teller of authentic stories of exploits and predicaments and romance that are filled with optimism; builder of albums with no boundaries - rock, pop, Americana, singer-songwriter...or, as he says, "I think it's all just rock & roll."
