Our next instore event is scheduled for Friday June 7 with Ohio punk legend Lamont Thomas aka OBNOX! He cut his teeth in bands like Bassholes and This Moment In Black History. He doesn't care about rules and he certainly isn't afraid to experiment, blending his sound with noise rock, hip-hop, garage, soul, free-jazz and hardcore. It's usually abrasive and often pretty steeped in political and social consciousness, a voice for the oppressed without gimmick or pandering. Live, Friday June 7th at Landlocked!

New Releases - May 17

The National - I Am Easy to Find (4AD)

Their 8th studio album. A companion short film with the same name will also be released with music by The National and inspired by the album. The film was directed by Mike Mills (20th Century Women, Beginners), and starring Alicia Vikander. Mills, along with the band, is credited as co-producer of the album, which was recorded with vocal contributions from Sharon Van Etten, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Lisa Hannigan, Mina Tindle and more. Available as CD, clear 2LP, or deluxe 3LP. 3LP is pressed on opaque red, yellow, and grey in a tri-fold jacket with 24 page booklet, foldout poster, full album + film score and etching.

The Head and The Heart - Living Mirage (WB)

Early last year, The Head And The Heart came together in the Mojave Desert's Joshua Tree where they decided to shed old skin before writing their 4th album, a sweeping, artful expansion of the earthyfolk rock that once defined them. This recent "rebirth, a spirit quest of sorts," as bassist Chris Zasche describes it, came from growing pains after their last album, Signs of Light: the amicable departure of guitarist-vocalist Josiah Johnson, replaced by Matt Gervais, and the return of keyboardist Kenny Hensley. Transparent Green/Black LP while supplies last!

Com Truise - Persuasion System (Ghostly)

Seth Haley's singular style of melodic beat music subsists as hazy machinist nostalgia, a mainframe downloaded cosmology. Yet with each release, alongside sonic refinement, comes an increasingly visible vapor trail to his own ontology. His long-awaited 2017 LP Iteration brought to completion a conceptual space saga while also reflecting seismic life changes for the producer and designer. With mini-LP Persuasion System, Haley leaves the past narrative behind, settling into a new period marked by change - on this planet, in the present - putting forth his most grounded and visceral work to date.

Endless Boogie - Vols 1 & 2 (No Quarter)

Endless Boogie's first two, long out-of-print, self-released albums. Often referred to as "black" and "white", and known to fetch high prices on the collectors market, they are packaged here as a 2xCD or 2xLP set. Taking Lou Reed's famous maxim – "One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz." – to its logical extreme, Endless Boogie consistently spin the simplest ingredients into pure gold. Endless, eternal, elemental – this is the Boogie you need.

Saint Vitus - s/t (Season of Mist)

Seven years after their comeback album, the legendary doom metal trailblazers return with their new album. The band sees the return of their original vocalist, Scott Reagers, as well as the addition of new bassist Pat Bruders (Down, Crowbar), who join long-time drummer Henry Vasquez and founder/guitarist Dave Chandler. As if in a time machine, the seasoned quartet pick up where their 1985 classic 'Hallows Victim' left off. They deliver nothing less than the truest and most enduring representation of original and fundamental doom metal.

Holly Herndon - Proto (4AD)

Holly's 3rd full-length isn't about A.I., but much of it was created in collaboration with her own A.I. 'baby', Spawn. For the record, she assembled a contemporary ensemble of vocalists, developers and an inhuman intelligence housed in a DIY souped-up gaming PC to create a record that encompasses live vocal processing and timeless folk singing, and places an emphasis on alien song craft and new forms of communion. Holly has successfully mined the edges of electronic and avant garde pop and emerged with a dynamic and disruptive canon of her own.
