New Releases - August 17

Austin Lucas - Immortal Americans (Cornelius Chapel)

Co-produced by Austin and Will Johnson (Centro-matic) and recorded/engineered by Steve Albini and captured in a series of live, full-band performances, Immortal Americans is Bloomington native Austin Lucas' seventh studio album. It's a clear-eyed album for murkier times, rooted in stripped-down heartland rock songs that find the artist reflecting upon the changes in both his hometown and himself. Album release show tonight at the Bishop!

Animal Collective - Tangerine Reef (Domino)

Tangerine Reef is a full-length audiovisual album by Animal Collective, in collaboration with Coral Morphologic, to commemorate the 2018 International Year of the Reef. Tangerine Reef is a visual tone poem consisting of time-lapse and slow pans across surreal aquascapes of naturally fluorescent coral and cameos by alien-like reef creatures. Tangerine Reef is the sight and sound of a literal underwater collective of animals. Limited 180 gram heavyweight double green vinyl LP featuring an etching on side D while it lasts!

Death Cab for Cutie - Thank You For Today (Barsuk)

Produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Fiona Apple, Franz Ferdinand, Muse), who also produced the band's last album the Grammy nominated "KINTSUGI." "Thank You for Today" marks the first Death Cab for Cutie release to see long time bandmates Gibbard, Nick Harmer, and Jason McGerr joined in the studio by new members Dave Depper (Menomena, Fruit Bats, Corin Tucker, Ray Lamontagne) and Zac Rae (My Brightest Diamond, Fiona Apple, Lana Del Rey, Gnarls Barkley).

Thee Oh Sees - Smote Reverser (Castle Face)

Oh Sees have spawned another frothy album of head-destroying psych-epics to grok and rock out to. Aside from the familiar psych-scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there's a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer's made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Reverser is the artistic restlessness underpinning it's flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and omnivorous appetite seems all the more superhuman!

Mitski - Be the Cowboy (Dead Oceans)

The breakout success of 2016's Puberty 2 saw Mitski hailed as the new vanguard of indie rock, the one to save the genre from the white dudes who've historically dominated it. "a lot of this record was me not having any feelings, being completely spent, but then trying to rally myself and wake up and get back to Mitski. I was feeling really nihilistic and trying to make pop songs." In Be The Cowboy, Mitski delves into the loneliness of being a symbol and the loneliness of being someone, and how it can feel so much like being no one.

Trevor Powers (Youth Lagoon) - Mulberry Violence (Baby Halo)

In 2016, Trevor Powers was at a creative impasse. Fresh off the release of 2015's Savage Hills Ballroom, the third album from his band Youth Lagoon, Powers felt confined by his own painstaking musical formula. And he had grown frustrated by how the inherent intimacy of his emotional, enveloping songs was often portrayed as introverted and somber and how it no longer matched his expansive artistic vision. As gorgeous and ornate as it is bleakly unsettling, the results sounds like nothing Powers has made yet. Mulberry Violence marks his return, but also demonstrates a dark tonal shift and surprising evolution.

Buck Owens - Country Singers Prayer (Omnivore)

Omnivore Recordings, in conjunction with the Buck Owens Estate, is proud to present Country Singer's Prayer-Buck Owens' final Capitol album, which has remained unissued to this day. Mastered from the original tapes, and presented in what was the intended sequence, also included are the B-sides to Buck's departing two singles. With new liner notes by Scott B. Bomar featuring interviews with Jim Shaw (longtime Buckaroos piano player and co-writer of "Country Singer's Prayer"), and R.J. Jones (aka Rocky Topp, the other co-writer of the title track), this is a fascinating chance to experience Buck's last envisioned Capitol album."

Terry Funk - Tougher Than Shoe Leather (Flannelgraph)

Flannelgraph Records is pleased to present their interview recorded with professional wrestling legend Terry Funk. Recorded in Amarillo, Texas, January 23rd, 2018. Edited with Zac Canale with intro/outro music by Michael Hart Dixon. Photographs courtesy Masanori Horie & Jon Boucher. Limited Edition of 207 White with Red Splatter available! Comes with free 8x10 glossy promo photo reproduction.
