The Mountain Goats - Bleed Out (Merge)

John Darnielle spent his pandemic winter watching French thrillers, vintage Italian poliziotteschi, and the 1974 Donald Pleasence mad-scientist vehicle The Freakmaker. Watching these films fueled and soundtracked his songwriting jags and bare-bones home recordings and in turn inspired his 20th album as a song cycle about the allure— and futility— of vengeance. Yellow LP, CD, or cassette! One lucky buyer will win 2 tix to the Mountain Goats show at the Bluebird on September 10th!

Hot Chip - Freakout/Release (Domino)

The 8th studio album from Hot Chip, Freakout/Release is another dizzying high in a multi-decade career that's seen Hot Chip continuing to innovate and develop a rich, resonant songcraft. And while they continue to operate at peak form, the album also feels like a new chapter for the group—a collection of flesh-and-blood songs that finds the band reaching into the darkness to emerge as a true creative unit, their gazes fixed positively on the future ahead. Indie Color 2LP or CD.

Tall Dwarfs - Unravelled: 1981-2002 (Merge)

A deep dive into the 21-year journey of New Zealand DIY pop pioneers Tall Dwarfs, aka Alec Bathgate and Chris Knox. Designed and painstakingly curated by Bathgate himself, this 55-track collection comprises songs from across the band's discography which spans a slew of full-length albums, EPs, singles, and compilation cuts released between 1981 and 2002. Unravelled is an abbreviated primer into the ramshackle brilliance of Tall Dwarfs, whose influence has lived on through artists as varied as Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Beck, Waxahatchee, Bill Callahan, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the Mountain Goats, and Neutral Milk Hotel, just to name a few. 2CD or 4LP.

Madonna - Finally Enough Love (Rhino)

Madonna made history once again when she topped the Dance Club Songs chart for the 50th time, making her the first and only recording artist to have 50 #1 hits on any single Billboard chart. To celebrate, she curated this 50-track compendium that includes her favorite remixes of those chart-topping dance hits that have filled clubs worldwide for four decades. The collection also includes more than 20 remixes being officially released for the first time or making their commercial debut. Boasting more than 220 minutes, it flows in mostly chronological order, from 1983's "Holiday" to 2019's "I Don't Search I Find". Free poster with purchase!

Silversun Pickups - Physical Thrills (New Machine)

Physical Thrills, their 6th album and the follow-up to 2019's Widow's Weeds, is produced by Butch Vig (Nirvana, Garbage, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Foo Fighters) and mixed by Billy Bush. Physical Thrills spans through an eclectic mix of distorted synths, pop-tinged danceable tunes, pared-down ballads, and a collection of "dream shanties" melodies that are all interconnected with each other into a cohesive body of work. Features "Scared Together" and "Alone on a Hill."
