Sunday : 12pm - 5pm

Sunday October 18th at 8PM at The Bishop, join us for a film screening of- The Winding Stream: The Carters, The Cashes & The Course Of Country Music. The Winding Stream is a story about the family at the heart of American roots music- The Carters and Cashes. Starting with the Original Carter Family- A.P., Sara and Maybelle- the film traces the trio's early musical success, the transformation of the act into The Carter Sisters, June Carter's marriage to legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of the present-day Carter family to keep the music alive. Part history, part performance, part family saga, the film illuminates the Carter's musical and cultural contributions and features a who's who of Americana music including Johnny Cash, George Jones, Rosanne Cash, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Sheryl Crow, Carolina Chocolate Drops, and more. Includes a compelling appearance by Johnny Cash in one of his last interviews. Sunday October 18th at 8PM at The Bishop, $5.

Speaking of non-holidays, Black Friday is November 27th! We don't know what we're doing yet - but hey, it will be fun and not like the carnage going down at Big Box Store Inc.

New Releases - October 9th

Protomartyr - The Agent Intellect (Sub Pop)

Consider the urgency with which Protomartyr has approached everything - 3 albums in 3 years, each more extraordinary and rewarding than the last. This music is inherently, unassumingly high stakes. Named after an ancient philosophical questioning of how the mind operates in relation to the self, it's an elegant and often devastating display of all that makes Protomartyr so vital and singularly visceral an outfit. Playing at the Blockhouse on 10/23!

Saintseneca - Such Things (Anti)

For this, the follow-up to their 2014 release, Dark Arc, singer Zac Little has moved away from the cinematic, linear quality and sought an even higher ground for the new songs, by taking input and incorporating the ideas of his fellow members. Little says, "even though it often times might seem like this singular vision, at the core my creative strategy for the band is one that inherently involves other people. I think the best work I'll make involves working that way." American Songwriter describes the band best by calling them "A uniquely singular band informed by Appalachian mountain music and the explosive recklessness of punk."

Alex G - Beach Music (Domino)

Over the course of six self-recorded and mostly self-released LPs, Alex G has built a body of work unassuming in its presentation, but astounding in its depth. Beach Music was written and recorded in his apartment between the fall of 2014 and the spring of 2015, during breaks from touring. Earlier albums often came in uninterrupted bursts- from his head to the internet in a matter of hours or days. The songs on Beach Music were written within months of one another. Surprisingly, the result is his most cohesive and beautiful work to date; a standout addition to his body of work. Playing at the Bishop on 10/28!

The Decemberists - Florasongs EP (Capitol)

This EP collects 5 songs that didn't make the band's "What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World" album. That album was the band's first in four years, but also saw the Decemberists firmly mining folk-rock narratives. "Riverswim" combines both a Celtic vibe and a country guitar riff, and one can understand why this didn't fit on "Terrible World." "Why Would I Now" has more traditional instrumentation and Jenny Conlee's piano is a perfect counterpoint to Meloy's voice. "Stateside" is just Meloy, with a stark guitar backdrop, but it is achingly beautiful, as if he were singing in your living room.

Drekka - Unbeknownst To The Participants At Hand LP (Dais)

Working under the name Drekka since 1996, Bloomington's Michael Anderson has released dozens of cassettes, CDs, and LPs on both his own Bluesanct label and many other labels internationally. Throughout years of performing and recording, Drekka has explored early industrial tape culture, fragile bedroom noise folk, and expansive cinematic textures. He has touched on the themes of silence and memory and noise and forgetfulness. In the past decade, his gorgeous sound sculptures have fit more neatly into the industrial noise and ambient genres.

City and Colour - If I Should Go Before You (Dine Alone)

World-renowned singer, songwriter and performer City and Colour (aka Dallas Green), returns with his fifth album. Unique to this project, the studio players on the album are made up of Green s trusted touring band: Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys. Bonus 12" with purchase!

The Garden - haha (Epitaph)

The Garden is a constantly evolving, conceptual punk band based in Orange County, California. Established by twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, the Garden draw inspiration from a background in punk classicism but remain unfettered and unselfconscious enough to infuse elements of 90s hip hop and big beat electronica. Their two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and very immediate, but equally nuanced with echoes of the hive mind, the ephemeral architecture that exists both inside and outside of the duo that the listener enters and never quite escapes.

The Zombies - Still Got That Hunger (The End)

By the start of the new Millennium, Blunstone and Argent were inspired to resurrect The Zombies, recruiting bassist Jim Rodford (formerly of Argent and The Kinks), Rodford's son Steve on drums, and renowned session guitarist Tom Toomey. The Zombies returned to the studio in early 2015 to begin work on a new album - only taking breaks to debut new songs live during a triumphant return to SXSW, a live broadcast from House of Blues New Orleans, and their first appearances at the UK's Great Escape and Glastonbury Festivals. The new album, Still Got That Hunger was produced by Chris Potter (The Verve Urban Hymns, Rolling Stones Steel Wheels).
