Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock And Roll tracks the twists and turns of Cambodian music as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country. This documentary film provides a new perspective on a country usually associated with only war and genocide. The film is a celebration of the incredible music that came from Cambodia and explores how important it is to Cambodian society both past and present. At the Bishop (18+) on Friday July 10th at 8pm - 100% of donations taken at the door go towards the film!

Its gettin hot! Luckily, we have ways of helping cool you off. Announcing the Landlocked Logo Pint Jar - perfect for your summer beverage of choice. These bad boys even have a screen-printed lid for drinks on the go. Only $6.

New Releases - June 30th

Neil Young - Monsanto Years (Reprise)

For this guitar-centric, full steam-ahead and highly-charged rock album, Young is joined by Promise of the Real, an LA-based rock band fronted by Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar), along with Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass) and Tato Melgar (percussion). Promise of the Real have performed with their father, Willie Nelson and Young on previous occasions. For the first time, they have recorded and will now tour together under the banner of the Rebel Content Tour.

Refused - Freedom (Epitaph)

Freedom is the first album in almost 20 years. It explodes out of the speakers as frontman Dennis Lyxzen's throat-shredding declaration that nothing has changed catapults Refused into the 21st century. If Shape blasted apart the constraints of the punk and hardcore worlds with which Refused had long been associated, Freedom goes a step further by incorporating the wide-ranging influences that have shaped each band members personal tastes. Its not just a follow-up to Shape, but a living breathing snapshot of a band, alive, now. It's not a reunion anymore, Lyxzen insists. This is one of the most radical things we ve ever done, both musically and lyrically.

Joy Williams - Venus (Columbia)

Many know Joy as one half of folk-rock duo The Civil Wars. Until their 2012 hiatus the singer-songstress with her long sea witch hair and Mona Lisa half-smile rarely revealed herself, except through the duo's bruising and stark lyrics of romantic conflations and doomed intimacies. No longer content to just conjure the antique grace of some mythic, bygone world, Williams was intent to actually pierce the veil of metaphor and an imagined history and tell a more honest, human story of one woman's journey out of darkness. It shows how one woman has come to live her truth the good, the bad, the petulant, the honorable and in the end, shows all of us how to live our own.

Bilal - In Another Life (eOne)

For his third release, Bilal entered the studio with the intent to record an EP, but exited with an all new studio album. Press materials promise a turn from his "surrealist work" and a new focus on "today's sociopolitical environment." The album features Kendrick Lamar, returning the favor for Bilal singing on To Pimp A Butterfly cuts 'Institutionalized' and 'These Walls', Southern rap obsessive Big K.R.I.T. and Kiwi vocalist Kimbra. The album was produced by LA composer Adrian Younge.

Good Old War - Broken Into Better Shape (Nettwerk)

Good Old War has earned the loyalty of an ever-expanding fan base thanks to their captivating live shows touring along side a diverse group of artists including Alison Krauss, Guster, Brandi Carlisle and Dr. Dog. Broken Into Better Shape became the record that it is today in Nashville where the band wrote and rounded out songs with producer Jason Lehning (Alison Krause, Mat Kerney, Dolly Parton) and the aid of terrific musicians and writers. This album unlike the past recordings is a joyous grand collaboration!

Ocean Carolina - Maudlin Days (Old Hand)

"A vibe that approximates Harvest Moon-period Neil Young or the Marks (Eitzel and Kozalek), without getting bogged down in their obsessions and idiosyncrasies. These guys are good. Real good." - My Old Kentucky Blog // "The band operates in a continuum of Ryan Adams, Grant Lee Buffalo, Tequila Sunrise-era Eagles, Mazzy Star if the singer was a boy, bright beautiful sunny mornings and quiet, colorful sunsets in the mountains. Lots of lush steel guitar and warm strummy tones... No lie, this is sweet sweet stuff." - Bruce Warren / WXPN

Velvet Teen - All is Illusory (Topshelf)

Nine years since the last full length from The Velvet Teen and the band has written what could arguably be their best record yet. All Is Illusory was mixed by Steve Choi of the RX Bandits exemplifies the bands use of driving guitars, exceptionally technical drumming and lyrics by Judah Nagler.
