We will be having bands (Thee Open Sex [solo drone], Birimbi [Afro-Columbian marimba dance], The Cowboys [rock n roll]) and DJs (Mike Adams, Stephen Westrich, Ann Jonker, Magician Johnson) to keep the blood pumpin. Outside, weather permitting, we will have our famous screen printing booth with limited edition RSD shirts by In Case of Emergency Press. Inside, Upland will be on hand with its Vinyl Tap Rye Pale Ale for those over the age of 21 (donations this year go towards Girls Rock for an event this fall in Bloomington). The line forms EARLY, so we will have Uel Zing on hand with coffee delights and Jefferson St Parade Band to keep you warm. Hope to see you!

New Releases - April 14th

Calexico - Edge of the Sun (Anti)

Calexico's follow-up to 2012's acclaimed Algiers, Edge of the Sun began with a songwriting retreat to the historic Mexico City borough of Coyoacan. Working for the first time with Mexican collaborators, Calexico expanded their horizons as the guest list grew to include musicians from a myriad of backgrounds, origins, and genres, including Sam Beam from Iron and Wine, Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses, Nick Urata from Devotchka, Carla Morrison, Gaby Moreno, Amparo Sanchez, members of the Greek band Takim, and Neko Case.

The Sonics - This Is The Sonics (Revox)

"This Is The Sonics" reunites original members Jerry Roslie, Larry Parypa and Rob Lind, backed by the powerhouse rhythm section of Freddie Dennis (The Kingsmen, The Liverpool Five) and Dusty Watson (Dick Dale, Agent Orange). Broken up in 1967, The Sonics legacy has remained frozen in time with classics like "Psycho," "Strychnine," and "The Witch", awaiting discovery and directly inspiring generations of garage bands the world over. "This Is The Sonics" picks up where they left off. Recorded in "Earth Shaking Mono" by producer Jim Diamond, known for his work with the White Stripes and The Dirtbombs.

The Wombats - Glitterbug (Bright Antenna)

When the Wombats first suggested "Let's Dance to Joy Division" on their 2007 debut, they came on strong with a blend of jumpy indie rock and lovable goof personas. Their follow-up, 2011's This Modern Glitch, followed suit. But in the four years between their second and third albums, the sweet silliness has dissipated. With Glitterbug, the Wombats have repositioned themselves as more pained, serious characters, longing to get away from the life of excessive parties and settle into a meaningful relationship.

The Damnwells - s/t (Rock Ridge)

Since 2006, Dezen continued to make Damnwells records with a cast of talented musicians to fill in the blanks. For the new album, he and his former comrades decided to "get the band back together" for real and joined producer Salim Nourallah (Old 97s) in the studio to capture the magic. They recorded in Austin, TX, where they sought, as Dezen says, to "capture as much live as possible." "What this record represents is four guys, 15 years, a few defeats, and a ton of tiny victories.

Blackfoot Gypsies - Handle It (Plowboy)

The Blackfoot Gypsies drink from the same deep well as Zeppelin, The Stones & The Faces: delta blues and the foreboding ghosts of country music's past. They blast out raw, classic rock & roll all dolled up in feathers, sequin jackets, vintage bell-bottoms & cowboy boots. Their wild shows have landed them on stage with the Alabama Shakes, White Fang and more. 'Meaty, swaggering and devoid of irony...' - The Nashville Scene

Gabi - Sympathy (Software)

Gabrielle's formal training began at an early age, studying Balinese dance and gamelan in Indonesia while learning both the clarinet and piano. She continued her training at Bard College where she studied voice and composition. Herbst's experience writing for chamber orchestra and mixed instrumentation inspired her to develop a repertoire of short-form, vocal-centric compositions under the name GABI. The nine songs embrace the vast potential of the human voice as instrument, story and landscape. With production by Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Paul Corley (Tim Hecker, Ben Frost), these open-ended sessions yielded a suite of compositions that capture her metamorphosis.

Royal Thunder - Crooked Doors (Relapse)

Propelled by the powerfully emotional voice of Mlny Parsonz, Royal Thunder seamlessly blends the great parts of heavy classic rock, 90s grunge and the forward thinking guitar heroics of contemporary metal bands like Mastodon and Baroness to create a sound unmistakably their own. Rarely has a band so naturally tied together 3 generations of hard rock into one triumphantly magnificent album.

Assateague - Good Morning Blues LP (Luna)

While much of contemporary folk music is unable to speak beyond its own generation, artists like Fleet Foxes and Devendra Banhart have re-combined the elements of folk music history that resonate today to create something that, though rarely political, moves the soul. A young new player in this scene is Assateague from San Francisco. His album is a tender and well-put folk opus, at once a perfect accompaniment to a bright Sunday brunch and a lonely Tuesday evening. Newly mastered for vinyl by our friends at Luna Music.
