We are wildly excited to announce THE CLEAN will be performing at the Bishop on Sunday August 17th. Yes, you read that right. The Clean, from New Zealand, featuring Hamish & David Kilgour and Robert Scott. Are you as surprised as we are that this is ACTUALLY HAPPENING? We can barely believe it either and we set it up! On sale NOW at Landlocked Music or online here. Do yourself a favor and don't miss this!

To tie in with this amazing show, Landlocked is presenting a free screening of Heavenly Pop Hits - The Flying Nun Story at the Bishop on Sunday August 10th. This documentary tells the story of the legendary New Zealand-based Flying Nun music label up to its 21st birthday in 2007. The label became associated with the 'Dunedin Sound': a catch-all term for a sprawl of DIY, post-punk, warped, jangly guitar-pop. The bands featured on their roster, including The Clean, The Bats, The Verlaines and The Chills influenced countless future indie bands such as Pavement, Guided By Voices and Jay Reatard. The Guardian UK: "[it's] as if being on the other side of the world meant the music was played upside down". Features interviews with key players, the spats and the dark-but-breezy glory. Sunday August 10th at 8pm for FREE!

New Arrivals for July 29th

Jenny Lewis - The Voyager (WB)

This is the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman's 3rd solo album and first in 6 years, following 2006's Rabbit Fur Coat (w/ The Watson Twins) and 2008's Acid Tongue. The Voyager is Lewis's most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but 3 of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis' longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Hypnotic Eye (Reprise)

The 13th album from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and the first album from the band in four years. "I knew I wanted to do a rock & roll record, " Petty told Rolling Stone in April. "We hadn't made a straight hard-rockin' record, from beginning to end, in a long time." Here it is.

Beck - Song Reader (Capitol)

CD only (for now?) This 20-track collection features exclusively recorded versions of Beck songs from the Song Reader music book release, with Beck and music supervisor Randall Poster producing the album. The 20 songs on Song Reader include versions by Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Laura Marling, Sparks, Loudon Wainwright III, Swamp Dogg, David Johansen, Eleanor Friedberger, Lord Huron, Norah Jones, Fun. and Jack Black. There is also a tune by Tweedy, the new band formed by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer.

Shabazz Palaces - Lese Majesty (Sub Pop)

Lese Majesty is the second album by Shabazz Palaces, the Seattle-based experimental hip-hop group featuring Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael Butler, formerly of Digable Planets) and Fly Guy Dai (aka Tendai Maraire). Lese Majesty is not a launching pad for the group's fan base increasing propaganda. It is a series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared. It was recorded and produced by Shabazz Palaces at Protect and Exalt Labs, a Black Space in Seattle, Washington. Free bonus 7" with purchase while supplies last

Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens - Cold World (Daptone)

In the 6 years since the release of their last full-length record, Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens have toured extensively, playing main stages at some of the most prestigious festivals in the world, including Bonnaroo, The Monterey Jazz Festival, Montreal Pop, and The Ottawa Blues Festival. Though seasoned veterans, these years of touring played a major role in the creation of these songs. With Gabriel (Bosco Mann) Roth at the helm, Naomi and company went into the studio, and cut onto tape what can only be described as bonafide Soul Excitement of the highest order.

OBN IIIs - Live in San Francisco (Castle Face)

"These dudes are animals, period. This live recording is mixed like a hot pan on the brain, and it captures the raw live energy of a great OBN III's show. Just about every night from note one, Orville [Bateman Neeley III] is in the crowd touching faces of fans and making OBN virgins uncomfortable. Let them touch your face (ewww)." - John Dwyer

Deep Ellum - Welcome to Deep Ellum (Royal Oakie)

Santa Cruz California's Deep Ellum plays a homespun brand of soulful Americana they like to call bootcut boogie, cosmic country, and roadhouse rock n roll. Fronted by singer-songwriter David Glasebrook, the group evokes Creedence Clearwater Revival, Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Band, and Sir Douglas Quintet. Recorded at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco.

Scharpling & Wurster - Rock, Rot & Rule LP (Flannelgraph)

Back in print on black vinyl! While they are now known, revered and loved for having entertained thousands upon thousands of loyal listeners to The Best Show on WFMU from 2000 to 2013, at the time of this first Jon Wurster on-air call to Tom Scharpling's (pre-Best Show) WFMU radio show in 1997 the recognizable Wurster timbre was unknown to listeners. This allowed for the routine, hilarious in itself, to be made even more enjoyable when upset listeners call in, taking Wurster's character at face value as he is interviewed by Scharpling, the greatest straight man in the business.
