Twiztid and Mindless Self Indulgence frontman, Jimmy Urine connect to recreate the 1982 Duran Duran hit "Hungry Like The Wolf." This song was previously only available digitally and is now being released physically on this limited 7" record.
From director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson (Bridget Jones's Baby) comes a heartfelt romantic comedy inspired by the unforgettable music of George Michael. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) stars as Kate, who works as an elf at a year-round holiday shop. Kate faces an endless streak of bad luck and poor decision-making until she meets Tom (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians), a kind-hearted man with a mysterious past who challenges her cynical world view. It seems like nothing can keep this mismatched couple together, but sometimes you gotta listen to your heart... and you gotta have faith.
When straight-laced fire superintendent Jake Carson (John Cena) and his elite team of expert firefighters (Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo and Tyler Mane) come to the rescue of three siblings (Brianna Hildebrand, Christian Convery and Finley Rose Slater) in the path of an encroaching wildfire, they quickly realize that no amount of training could prepare them for their most challenging job yet – babysitters. Unable to locate the children’s parents, the firefighters have their lives, jobs and even their fire depot turned upside down and quickly learn that kids – much like fires – are wild and unpredictable.
Hayley Williams hugely anticipated debut solo album Petals For Armor arrives via Atlantic Records on Friday, May 8th. Produced by Taylor York – Williams’ lead collaborator in the GRAMMY® Award-winning Paramore – the album was heralded earlier this month by the acclaimed first single, “Simmer”. The smoldering track arrived alongside its own Warren Fu-directed video, providing a compelling first chapter to a continuing storyline.
2020 album from the Irish singer/songwriter. Name many of the most notable recordings and/or performers in Irish music and it's a fair bet that John Doyle had something to do with them - Liz Carroll; Eileen Ivers; Karan Casey; Solas; Michael Black; Mary Black; the trio of McCusker, McGoldrick and Doyle; and now Usher's Island (Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Mike McGoldrick, Paddy Glackin and John Doyle), not to mention the hugely popular Transatlantic Sessions. This list is a veritable who's who of the greatest names in Irish music, and these are just a very few of the stellar artists for whom John Doyle's signature guitar sound, singing or songwriting is essential. Impossibly in demand in the studio and on the road, immensely talented and blessed with an acute ear, a wicked sense of rhythm and seemingly endless stream of magic in his playing, composing, performing and producing, John Doyle is solidly establishing himself as one of the most versatile, creative and prolific voices in folk and traditional Irish music.

2020 sees the release of Always Tomorrow, the hotly anticipated new album from Best Coast. Inspired by the 70s, the LA based duo expand their signature indie pop sound into a harmonic blend of melodic guitars and keyboards as warm and refreshing as a California breeze. Multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno, along with the irrepressible Bethany Cosentino, combine to bring her masterful storytelling to new heights, crafting their most eloquent and reflective album to date. It’s the Best Coast you know and love at an entirely new level.
Norwegian indie rock band Sløtface deliver a powerful sophomore record in "Sorry for the late reply". Fierce yet melodic, the album takes on everything from break ups to climate change and lead vocalist Haley Shea's immigrant experience.
Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 debut album from New York City born, raised and forever-based songwriting partners Eliza Barry Callahan and Jack Staffen. Like New was produced by Jonathan Rado (Weyes Blood, Father John Misty, Whitney, The Lemon Twigs). The duo - who had previously captured attention releasing deft, stripped down, warm-toned pysch-pop under their names, Jack and Eliza - shifted to what naturally felt like their next musical gear. If Jack and Eliza showcased the songwriting prowess of a promising young duo (they are both still in their early twenties), then Purr let's Callahan's and Staffen's work bloom in the fertile ground of a fully realized soundscape. Purr builds upon an ageless, classic sound that at once looks at the past while leaning into their own, individual future - with Staffen's and Callahan's vocals humming at the center.

Since emerging in 2009, their first decade comprised Deceiver , Life Cycles , Real. , and Dark Matter , reaching a high watermark on Violent Noise in 2018. Bringing their total streams past 100 million, the latter included “Why Am I Like This?” and “Red Clouds” in addition to garnering acclaim from the likes of New Noise who asserted, “Their excellent and engaging Violent Noise has all the hallmarks of a band at the peak of its powers.” After a triumphant decade anniversary tour, the group once again set their sights on the future cast in fire on the 2019 single “Burning Your World Down.” Produced by Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, Godsmack], it teeters between synth swells, gut-punching riffs, and a hypnotic hook, igniting a new era for the band and setting the stage for their sixth full-length, "MONOMANIA". “We wanted to share "Burning Your World Down" to end 2019 because it represents both where we have been, but prepares listeners for what will be an amazing year for our band and our fans in 2020 when we unveil our sixth studio album. We didn't chase where we were, what we've made previously, what our peers had done or are doing. We stopped listening to all the outside noise, and we just focused on writing the most honest songs we could. We pushed ourselves, pushed our boundaries and we will certainly push the boundaries of what people perceive as The Word Alive. We wrote an album that will define The Word Alive, and this is just the beginning. Welcome to the new chapter of our story.” - Telle Smith - The Word Alive
In 2014, Dan Snaith aka Caribou released Our Love to overwhelming critical acclaim. Caribou returns now with his new studio album Suddenly, a warm, untamable, and constantly surprising record about family and the changes we go through as those relationships evolve. Most prominently, Suddenly refers to the moments of dramatic and unexpected change that occur at points in any life and within any family-universal themes that can catch you off guard and change your life in a heartbeat. Those dramatic moments are part of a slower process. These moments rear their heads, for good or bad, during the everyday flow of life. "There's a tension between those sudden things which blindside you and the more glacial, gradual day-to-day changes," he observes. "We are so caught up in the immediate-the details that require our attention every day-that we can be blind to the bigger forces shaping us. That's why so often when something drastic happens suddenly, it catalyzes all sorts of changes in our lives. Our perspective shifts." Suddenly is in the music, too. This is the most surprising and unpredictable Caribou album to date. Though it retains the trademark Caribou warmth and technicolor, this album is littered with swerves and left turns. "I wanted to balance the familiar-the sound that people associate with my music-against these moments of surprise," Snaith says. As his passion and joy in music-making remains as fresh as ever, Suddenly is the purest example of this yet.
Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2020 release, the eighth album from hard-hitting rockers Five Finger Death Punch. The album was produced by Kevin Churko, the Canadian record producer/engineer and songwriter who currently lives in Las Vegas, where he works out of his private studio, The Hideout Recording Studio. Includes "Inside Out".
For Sophie Allison, aka Soccer Mommy, color theory confronts the ongoing mental health and familial trials that have long-plagued her, presenting listeners with an uncompromisingly honest self-portrait. The new album’s sonic landscape is vast and dexterous, with melodies that shimmer on the surface, but reveal an unsettling darkness with each listen.
As we age, we face obstacles that are beyond our control. Some forces are internal: insecurity, anxiety, fear. Some are external: the loss of loved ones, an unjust system and the fragility of time. Yet the mark of maturity is how you respond when you realize you’re not in control. Where do you find your resilience?
This album is a reflection of us coming to terms with how to find our power in the face of an unfair world. These songs lead listeners past “where happy man searches, to a place only mad women know.” We question our purpose, our relationships, our faith. Trading the fears of our youth for the dread that rages within us as mature women.
With SATURN RETURN, our hope is that women can feel less alone in their journey through the modern world. We need each other more than we ever have; the less competition and the more inclusiveness and understanding, the better. We are southern women in the 21st century, convicted by our beliefs.
Over the last decade, Real Estate have crafted warm yet meticulous pop-minded music, specializing in soaring melodies that are sentimentally evocative and unmistakably their own. The Main Thing dives further into the musical dichotomies they're known for'lilting, bright guitar lines set against emotionally nuanced lyrics, complex arrangements conveyed breezily. What emerges is a superlative collection of interrogative songs as full of depth, strangeness and contradictions as they are lifting hooks.
Third Man Records had the pleasure of hosting the inimitable Broken Social Scene, carefully absorbing and recording their magnetic and unforgettable live set on the Blue Room stage. Epic, panoramic, and intimate all at the same time, the legendary Toronto collective Broken Social Scene began as an ebbing and flowing collective of artists in the late 90s, collaborating to create a distinct strand of indie rock that is both perplexingly maximal and straight-up catchy.
The band kicked off the set with emotive fan favorite “Cause = Time”, then transitioning into “Stay Happy,” the lead track from 2017’s Hug of Thunder, in all it’s hypnotic, horn-driven grandeur. Then, on the flip side, the album’s 2-song B-side wraps with the slow-build anthem “It’s All Gonna Break,” a song once described as “Bob Seger on acid.” Really, how else would you want a show to close?
Their live set was captured, mixed and mastered in real time via the world’s only live venue and direct-to-acetate lathe cutting studio. With the release of this live album, Third Man is very excited to invite all to be a part of this special experience, Broken Social Scene’s first commercially available live album, in the only venue in the world where performance, art and tactile transcription methodologies converge.
With a hugely impressive 1.3 million combined album sales under their belt, Tycho are the two-time Grammy nominated electronic music project led by Scott Hansen as primary composer, songwriter and producer. Respected for both their musical output and Scott’s graphic design work, under the ISO50 moniker, Tycho has produced and released a hugely successful back catalogue which has drawn comparisons to the likes of Boards of Canada (“To get a sense of their sound, think the same kind of detail-oriented work and continuity of style that made Boards of Canada and Ulrich Schnauss revered artists in their field.” - Exclaim!) and resulted in a 2017 and 2020 Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album for ‘Epoch’ and ‘Weather’, respectively.
‘Simulcast’ follows Tycho’s studio album ‘Weather’ and features highly anticipated instrumental versions of ‘Weather’ albums tracks, previously vocal-led by singer-songwriter Saint Sinner. Tycho have gone back to the studio and recorded alternative versions of those original recordings, creating new material from those much loved tracks, while taking a bold step towards their classic sound. This is an unmissable release for any Tycho fan. ‘Simulcast’ will be available on Mom + Pop Music in the US and Ninja Tune worldwide.
For the entirety of her nearly three-decade-long career, globally acclaimed singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb has been exploring a variety of styles of music, moving seamlessly between creating family-friendly albums, including her 2018 Grammy-winning Feel What U Feel, and adult-focused studio albums like Tails, Firecracker, and The Way It Really Is. It is her latest release, her fifteenth record to date, A Simple Trick To Happiness, that finds Loeb putting forth her most poignant and profoundly personal album in an exceptional body of work.
Angelica Garcia‘s new album is here. It’s called Cha Cha Palace and will be here on February 28th, 2020. Today, you can hear the dynamic new single “Guadalupe” and watch the Spencer Ford (Brockhampton)-directed video. Referencing La Virgen de Guadalupe (a Catholic icon of the Latinx community), “Guadalupe” is a meditation on the deity as a powerful 14 year-old who is the epicenter of a culture—and the responsibility that comes along with that. The announcement comes on the heels of an exciting beginning to the year, which included a co-sign from President Barack Obama and inclusion in The New York Times’ ‘Things Our Critics Are Looking Forward To’ list and ‘Best Songs of 2019’.
Recorded at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals. Includes the new song “Bitter End”, a cover of the Bee Gees classic “To Love Somebody”, and a re-imagining of their hit single “Wish I Knew You”.
Circles is the sixth and final studio album by Mac Miller. Conceived as a sister album to 2018's full length Swimming, the album was completed with the assistance of Jon Brion, with whom Miller worked on Swimming and had been working together on Circles at the time of his passing. While sonically distinctly different than its predecessor, Circles features many of the hallmarks for which Swimming was critically-acclaimed upon its release -- Miller further realizing his singing voice in addition to rapping, live instrumentation and earnest, confessional lyrical content. Listeners will hear shades of some of the album's influences in its songs, from the T-Rex guitar tone of "Surf" to the Plastic Ono Band-era John Lennon feel of its production and the inspired cover of Arthur Lee's 1972 single "Everybody's Gotta Live." It's a momentous final entry into the discography of an artist that remains at the center of reimagining the limits of rap.
Here comes SUPERSTAR the bigger, badder, glitter-driven record by Caroline Rose. Written as a sequel to 2018's LONER, the forthcoming 2020 release 'plays out like an epic movie about the pursuit of fame and fortune,' Rose states. 'I've always been fascinated by this pursuit, but what's even more fascinating is what happens when it fails.' Indeed, gone are the successful Hollywood hunks and starlets of old. SUPERSTAR chronicles a quirky anti-hero, who after receiving a wrong call from the elite hotel Chateau Marmont, decides to leave their old life behind in order to become a big Hollywood star.
Few artists understand the human condition like 6-time Grammy nominee Brandy Clark. Working again with acclaimed producer Jay Joyce, Your Life is a Record takes her unerring eye for detail and a genre-melting sense of melody to examine personal truths, revelations and emancipations with wit, grace and compassion. Working with just four acoustic-based musicians, intimacy was the goal. Memphis strings and horns, guest appearances from Randy Newman (“Bigger Boat”) and guitarist John Osborne color in the sketches – creating a depth to what is easily Clark’s most revelatory record yet
Emmy-, Grammy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress, singer, and songwriter, Mandy Moore returns to music with her first album in a decade, Silver Landings. In a purposeful departure from the more tightly structured pop of her previous material, she's worked closely with long-time collaborator and producer Mike Viola and with her husband, Taylor Goldsmith (singer/guitarist/songwriter for L.A.-based folk-rock band Dawes), creating the album's lyrics on her own and recording each song live with a full band setup. The album deftly moves from 70s inspired soft-rock (When I Wasn’t Watching, I’d Rather Lose) to contemporary pop (Save A Little For Yourself, Tryin’ My Best, Los Angeles). “I wanted to make a California-inspired record, something that feels airy and natural”, says Moore.
Moore looks forward to embarking on the next chapter of her music career with a newfound sense of agency. “I very much feel like I'm at the helm of the ship now, where I'm stepping back into music completely on my own terms,” she says. “Everything that's happened up until this point has gotten me to where I am today, and I'm so excited to just keep moving forward.”
Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. Born from the DIY/all-ages scene in New York, Thick make music with the raw defiance of punk and addictive melodies of pop, punchy and catchy and wildly tongue-in-cheek. With their live show typically spawning a mosh pit described by Stereogum as "more like an aggressive hug," the Brooklyn-based trio brings an unchecked intimacy while building a deep and unshakable solidarity with the audience.
Overcoats’ second full-length album The Fight is a ten song battle cry. However, Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell's vision is not about picking up arms, but rather picking yourself up. The New York-natives’ debut for Loma Vista Recordings is a spectrum of sonic outbursts designed to empower and uplift. With The Fight, Overcoats buck trends, overturn expectations, and crank out a unique brand sticky sweet pop subversion tightened up to Swedish standards under a Seattle grunge haze.
Double clear vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2019 release, the debut album from Lauv, the Platinum-certified independent singer, songwriter, producer, and pop visionary.

Lauded as an experimental, alternative band that's never been married to one genre, Phantogram-comprised of lifelong friends Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel-challenge the zeitgeist with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia and electronic pop.
