Very Very Large new release week, lets try to keep em short and sweet!

New Releases - September 22nd

Godspeed You Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers (Constellation)

GYBE is an experimental nine-piece from Montreal, Canada that specializes in instrumental music of haunting beauty. This is their 6th full length album.

Hiss Golden Messenger - Hallelujah Anyhow (Merge)

Ten new songs, penned by HGM principal M.C. Taylor, were recorded with Brad Cook, Phil Cook, Josh Kaufman, Darren Jessee, Michael Lewis, and Evan Ringel. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Tift Merritt, Skylar Gudasz, Tamisha Waden, Mac McCaughan, and John Paul White provided vocal harmonies. Bonus live cassette and signed poster with purchase!

Omni - Multi Task (Trouble in Mind)

A more musically adventurous step forward, keeping the frantic fingerpicking guitar work & dead-cool delivery while expanding their musical palette to include whispers of post-Roxy glam & Postcard Records pop. "Multi-task" balances their trademark off-kilter & unconventional jams with elegance. Omni pulls it off with grace & style, still whirring on their minimalist funk-fused agit-pop while creating an album that is awash in the excitement of new love. At the Bishop on 11/7!

Metz - Strange Peace (Sub Pop)

Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show. "The best punk isn't an assault as much as it's a challenge - to what's normal, to what's comfortable, or simply to what's expected. Teetering on the edge of perpetual implosion.

Moses Sumney - Aromanticism (Jagjaguwar)

Moses has ridden a wave of word-of-mouth praise, hushed recordings, and dynamic live performances. In a voice both mellifluous and haunting, Sumney makes future music that transmogrifies classic tropes, like moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz gems. His vocals narrate a personal journey through universal loneliness atop otherworldly compositional backdrops.

The Clientele - Music for the Age of Miracles (Merge)

"perhaps their most musically ambitious album to date. Music for the Age of Miracles is full of elegant, occasionally even majestic orchestrations and unexpected melodic twists that slip by subtly enough to keep from disturbing the quiet grace that is a Clientele signature." - NPR

Jon Langford - Four Lost Souls (Bloodshot)

Langford is one of the founders of punk band The Mekons, post-punk group Three Johns and alt-country ensembles Waco Brothers and Pine Valley Cosmonauts. Since the mid-80s, he has been one of the leaders in incorporating folk and country music into punk rock. On Four Lost Souls, the Welsh-born, Chicago-based punk-rocker-turned-Americana icon and visual artist headed to Muscle Shoals. It's an album of pure Americana, going to a place where the differences between country, soul, blues, and rock 'n' roll are blown aside by the warm, languid breezes.

Eilen Jewell - Down Hearted Blues (Signature)

New album from the beloved Eilen, this time around paying homage to vintage blues artists including Willie Dixon, Memphis Minnie, Betty James, Bessie Smith & others, recorded live over 2 days.

Cut Copy - Haiku from Zero (Astralwerks)

Written and recorded at studios around the world (Melbourne, Copenhagen, Washington, DC, NYC, Atlanta), the 9 tracks nonetheless present a united sonic front, due in no small part to the guiding ear of producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Neon Indian). Bonus 7" w/ purchase while they last.

Van Morrison - Roll With the Punches (Caroline)

Van's 37th studio album - sees him simultaneously hand-picking a selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin' Hopkins among others) and recording a set of new self-written songs. Recorded with an incredible team of studio collaborators including Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.

Leon Russell - On A Distant Shore (Palmetto)

On a Distant Shore arrives 10 months after Russell's passing. It's his final album, offering up a stunning batch of original material - including updated versions of 3 hits from his older catalog - all influenced by the timeless sounds of the Great American Songbook. These aren't cover songs. Instead, they're Russell's own version of pop and jazz standards, filled with sweeping strings, upright piano, pedal steel, horns, and a voice that retained its powerful, poignant punch until the very end.

Shout Out Louds - Ease My Mind (Merge)

Ease My Mind is the fifth full-length album from Swedish pop masters, and their first since 2013's Optica. "Ease My Mind celebrates music as a means of escape, a need to take a break from feeling petrified with fear,"

Chelsea Wolfe - Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

While past albums operated on the intimacy of stripped-down folk music or the throbbing pulse of supplemental electronics, Chelsea's 6th album wrings its exquisiteness out of a palette of groaning bass, pounding drums, and crunching distortion. Recorded by Kurt Ballou (Converge), the album was conceived as an emotional purge, a means of coming to terms with the tumult of the outside world by exploring the complexities of ones inner unrest.

Lo'Jo - Fonetiq Flowers (World Village)

2017 Lotus Artist! The French band Lo'Jo was founded in 1982 by Denis Pean and Richard Bourreau. Their unique blend of gipsy, North African and French folk elements soon won them legions of fans. They have over 15 albums under their belt, and collaborations with a wide range of prestigious artists (Robert Plant, Tinariwen, Archie Shepp).
