The Black Keys – Delta Kream (Indie Exclusive)
The record celebrates the band’s roots, featuring eleven Mississippi hill country blues standards that they have loved since they were teenagers, before they were a band, including songs by R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, among others. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney recorded Delta Kream at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville; they were joined by musicians Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, long-time members of the bands of blues legends including R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. The album takes its name from William Eggleston’s iconic Mississippi photograph that is on its cover.
Fear Factory – Demanufacture (25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (Indie Exclusive)
Fear Factory is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles in 1989. Throughout their career they have released nine full-length albums and have evolved through a succession of sounds, all in the main style of groove metal and industrial metal. The band has been enormously influential on the heavy metal scene in the mid-to-late 1990s.
Their second album, Demanufacture, was released on June 12. Considered to be the band’s defining work, it features—in comparison to the overly brutal approach favored in the band’s early recordings—a more industrial metal sound characterized by a mix of rapid-fire thrash metal/industrial metal guitar riffs and tight, pulse driven drum beats, and roaring vocals that made way for melodic singing and powerful bass lines.
Demanufacture was awarded the maximum five-star rating in Kerrang! Rock Magazine. It made the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers Charts and a video was produced for the song, “Replica.” Burton Bell wrote the majority of the lyrics and Dino wrote all the music. Many regard the album as the band’s best and a heavy metal classic. The band spent the next few years touring with Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and opened for Ozzy Osbourne in North America and Europe during late 1995. Upon its release, Demanufacture proved to be extraordinarily successful and received universal acclaim from music critics. Their singles have charted on the US Mainstream Rock Top 40 and albums on the Billboard Top 40, 100 and 200 and they have sold more
than a million albums in the U.S. alone. For the 25th anniversary, ROG is reissuing this classic album for the first timeon vinyl in the U.S.
Dua Lipa – Future Nostalgia (The Moonlight Edition)
This deluxe edition features Lipa’s brand new single “We’re Good”— a down tempo track that is a sensual tale of two lovers needing to go their separate ways. It also includes previously unheard tracks ‘If It Ain’t Me’, ‘That Kind of Woman’ and ‘Not My Problem (feat. JID)’ and will include the top 10 smash hit single from Miley Cyrus Feat Dua Lipa ‘Prisoner’. Also on the album is ‘Fever’ with Angèle, which spent three weeks at #1 in France and 11 weeks at #1 in Belgium and J Balvin, & Bad Bunny ‘UN DIA (ONE DAY) (Feat. Tainy).
Since the release of her first single in 2015, Dua Lipa has become one of the music world’s
hottest young artists. She has the longest run of 3 tracks in the top 10 by a female artist since 1955 and the album has spent 26 weeks in the top 10 since its release.
St. Vincent – Daddy’s Home (Indie Exclusive)
Daddy’s Home, the sixth album from St. Vincent, is the latest facet of an ever-evolving artist regarded by many as the most consistently innovative and intriguing presence in modern music. The album was pro-duced by Annie Clark and Jack Antonoff, recorded by Laura Sisk, mixed by Cian Riordan, and mastered by Chris Gehringer. The music was performed by Annie, Jack, Cian, Thomas, Evan Smith, Sam KS, Greg Leisz, Daniel Hart, Michael Leonhard, Lynne Fiddmont and Kenya Hathaway.
“Daddy’s Home collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC. Last night’s heels on the morning train. Glamour that’s been up for three days straight.”—St. Vincent
