Latest Vampire Weekend and Big Thief Out Today!

It’s Friday so of course we’ve got a couple new releases to feature. The latest from Big Thief and Vampire Weekend have arrived. Both releases have been highly anticipated and based on the reviews coming out, the wait has been worth it.

We have our list of new vinyl restocks and additions just down past the new release details.

Let’s get right to the new releases for this week!

Big Thief – U.F.O.F. – (Indie Exclusive – Colour Vinyl)
U.F.O.F., F standing for ‘Friend’, is the name of the highly anticipated third record by Big Thief.

U.F.O.F. was recorded in rural western Washington at Bear Creek Studios. In a large cabin-like room, the band set up their gear to track live with engineer Dom Monks and producer Andrew Sarlo, who was also behind their previous albums. Having already lived these songs on tour, they were relaxed and ready to experiment. The raw material came quickly. Some songs were written only hours before recording and stretched out instantly, first take, vocals and all.

“Making friends with the unknown… All my songs are about this,” says Lenker; “If the nature of life is change and impermanence, I’d rather be uncomfortably awake in that truth than lost in denial.”

Vampire Weekend – Father of the Bride
Father of the Bride is the highly anticipated new album from Vampire Weekend, and is the band’s fourth full length release. It is the follow up to 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City, which won the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 2014. Father of the Bride is produced by founding band member Ezra Koenig, and Ariel Rechtshaid (Adele, Madonna, Charli XCX, Usher, HAIM, Solange, and others). The album features 18 songs, with an array of collaborations yet to be revealed. 6 of the songs from Father of the Bride will be released ahead of the full album.
