Thanks to everyone for coming out to Black Friday this year. Thanksgiving came late this year, that means there are only a few more weeks left of 2019! BOOY-YA: Time to get your late stage capitalism holiday cheer on! We still have a whole boxful of Black Friday titles available, and several BF late arrivals are now here as well...

In case you hadn't heard, physical music distribution is an absolute disaster right now. Through a series of consolidations and perfect storms, the majors (Sony, Universal, Warner) principle warehouse can't seem to get goods to stores for street date anymore. Landlocked, and hundreds of other indie stores, are still doing everything correctly, on time, as we always have. The majors' cost-savings venture and the complete ineptitude of the fulfillment warehouse is bungling up the whole process and crippling an entire industry. Far too often we have to apologize to you, the customer, and have no real explanation why we don't have the things we absolutely should. Orders are taking months to fulfill, returns are not being processed, credits are not being issued. We ask for your support and patience as we head into the holidays. Need something specific- please let us know ASAP, we would love to help you out.

New Releases - December 6

The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin: Live at Red Rocks (Warner)

In May 2016, The Flaming Lips performed The Soft Bulletin in its entirety with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. The band were accompanied by a 69-piece orchestra and 56-strong Chorus. The Flaming Lips performed the 12-track album in its original sequence with new arrangements for each song that use the orchestra and chorus to great effect. The resulting live album is being released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Soft Bulletin, originally released in 1999.

The Who - WHO (Polydor)

With their first album in over 13 years, it's difficult to know what a long-lasting band like The Who might release. It turns out, they haven't lost their touch. It's as if Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey jumped in a time machine when they produced this new album. It takes something to stay true to the original 'Who-ish' sound after 50 years in the game, but unlike so many others, this time they've managed to do so with impeccable form. For two guys in their 70s, it's pretty impressive and if this is their last hurrah, it's surely a fitting one.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band - A Tuba to Cuba (Sub Pop)

The legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band present the soundtrack to A Tuba to Cuba. The film follows Ben Jaffe of New Orleans' famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band as he seeks to fulfill his late father's dream of retracing their musical roots to the shores of Cuba in search of the indigenous music that gave birth to New Orleans jazz. At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, it's crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City's inimitable spirit and joie de vivre.

VA - If You're Going To The City: A Tribute To Mose Allison (Fat Possum)

Mose Allison's singular style - a unique blend of jazz and blues, his incisive humor, and knack for distilling deep themes into simple potent lyrics made him a major influence on a generation of musicians. It didn't take much convincing for the producers to bring a host of top artists onboard. The album consists of all Mose Allison covers featuring Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Iggy Pop, Elvis Costello, Chrissie Hynde, Ben Harper, Frank Black, Bonnie Raitt and more. Proceeds of the release go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

Rachel Grimes - The Way Forth (Temporary Residence)

The Way Forth encompasses lush layers of voices and orchestrations in an experiential, non-linear investigation highlighting perspectives of Kentucky women from 1775 to today. The scope widens to include a modern male narrator's reflections on a place battered by greed, civil war, bigotry, and the exploitation of natural resources. Through music, voice, and film, The Way Forth honors the emotional legacy of the silenced, the holistic, the beauty in quotidian life, and explores the eternal grace and redemption of time, as symbolized by the great Dix and Kentucky Rivers.

Bill Evans - Live at Art D'Lugoff's Top of The Gate (Resonance)

Two complete sets of the Bill Evans Trio (with bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell) on October 23, 1968 at Art D'Lugoff's legendary Village Gate club in New York City. This deluxe 2LP gatefold set includes a 4-page insert with iconic photos by Tom Copi, Jan Persson, Raymond Ross, Fred Seligo and Herb Snitzer, essays by renowned jazz critic Nat Hentoff, vibraphonist Gary Burton, Art D'Lugoff's son Raphael D'Lugoff, and more. Mastered by Bernie Grundman and pressed by Record Technology Inc.

Miles Davis - Early Minor: Rare Miles From The In A Silent Way Sessions (Legacy)

During the year between the dissolution of his ‘60s quintet and the groundbreaking Bitches Brew, Miles Davis recorded a number of transitional sessions creating music of lyrical beauty, culminating in the masterful album In a Silent Way. Three superb pieces— "Splashdown,” “Early Minor” and “The Ghetto Walk”—come to vinyl for general release for the first time ever, as originally heard on The Complete In a Silent Way Sessions, released in 2001.
