It’s Friday! It’s a long weekend and we’ve got a load of fresh releases to feature today.
New albums from Broken Bells, The Cult, Lamb of God and Yeah Yeah Yeahs have dropped. Beyonce’s “Renaissance” is available on vinyl today and we’ve got some stellar reissues from L7, The B52s, Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits. So what are we waiting for? Let’s get to the details!
You can find all of these albums in-store or online at our eShop here:
Broken Bells – Into the Blue
Featuring two of the bigger names in indie and alternative music – the Shins’ singer/guitarist James Mercer and producer/multi-instrumentalist Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse – Broken Bells combined the pair’s greatest strengths.
Lamb of God – Omens
Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, Omens is a furious entry in the Lamb Of God catalog, perhaps their angriest album yet.
The Cult – Under The Midnight Sun (Indie Exclusive)
From lead single “Give Me Mercy,” it’s clear that Astbury and cofounding member Billy Duffy have spent the six years since their last full-length pushing further into their esoteric strength.
Beyonce – Renaissance
Packed with rousing anthems that resonate with everybody, RENAISSANCE is a culmination of freedom and escape that encourages unimaginable jubilation, agency, and movement with abandon.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Cool It Down (Indie Exclusive)
A thunderstorm of a return is what the legendary trio has in store for us on “Cool It Down”, their fifth studio album and their first since 2013’s “Mosquito”.
L7 – The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum
1996’s The Beauty Process—Triple Platinum has never quite gotten its due. But Donita Sparks counts it as her favorite L7 album; it’s simultaneously the heaviest record they ever released, and the most varied.
L7 – Hungry for Stink
L7 wasn’t just one of the best all-female bands of the late ‘80s and ‘90s; they were one of the best bands, period, paving the way for the grunge and riot grrrl movements with killer songs, crunching riffs, and badass attitude.
Joni Mitchell – Blue
Joni Mitchell’s Blue was Named the #3 Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone. Now Newly Remastered by Bernie Grundman Under the Supervision of Joni Mitchell.
Tom Waits – Blood Money (20th Anniversary Edition)
“Blood Money is flesh and bone, earthbound,” said Waits. “The songs are rooted in reality: jealousy, rage, the human meat wheel…They are more carnal.
The B-52’s – The B-52’s (Limited Edition)
Limited ultra clear with red splatter vinyl pressing of the 1979 classic.
B-52’s, The – Wild Planet (Limited Edition)
Limited ultra clear with blue splatter vinyl pressing of their second album originally released in 1980.
See you soon!
