RYAN BINGHAMFEAR & SATURDAY NIGHT (DIG)Released Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Price: $9.99 (sale priced)Country
Recorded mostly live with a brand new backing band FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT shows Bingham facing down his past with a poetic grace throughout. The lead single Radio is about coping with a darkness that does not want to let go, searching for a safe place to make sense of your life and the strength to stay on the right track through it all. Some of the most affecting moments on the album are in the harmonica-driven wistful waltz Broken Heart Tattoos, a song written to an unborn child, and in the title track, Fear and Saturday Night. Those hard-learned lessons, through both good times and bad, helped make Bingham the man he is today. FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT is the most authentic, personal, and deeply moving portrait of that man we have heard yet.


DECEMBERISTSWHAT A TERRIBLE WORLD: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WORLDReleased Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Price: $11.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
Typically we book four or five weeks in the studio and bang out the whole record, explains singer Colin Meloy. This time, we started by just booking three days, and didn t know what we would record. There was no direction or focus; we wanted to just see what would come out. We recorded Lake Song on the first day, live, and then two more songs in those three days. And the spirit of that session informed everything that came after. From the soaring, bittersweet first single Make You Better , to the ruminating ballad Lake Song , and anthemic closer A Beginning Song , What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World establishes itself as the Decemberists most varied and dynamic work to date, both musically and emotionally.

Following the success of his critically-acclaimed-fifth-studio-album, Single Mothers, Justin Townes Earle is pleased to announce the release of the companion album, Absent Fathers.Comprised of 10 tracks, Absent Fathers was recorded alongside Single Mothers as a double album, but as Justin began to sequence it, he felt each half needed to make its own statement and they took on their own identities.Single Mothers was released on September 9, 2014 via Vagrant Records.

GUSTEREVERMOTIONReleased Tuesday, January 13, 2015
Price: $11.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
Evermotion. Produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen, Stereolab), the album bulldozes inhibitions, propelling the band to a harder-charging, more freewheeling sound as heard on lead single, Simple Machine. Packed with tight hooks, muscular guitar riffs, clanging percussion and surprisingly dark lyrics, the new album features adventurous turns on slide guitars, brassy trumpets and a glockenspiel, with sax and trombone accompaniment.


LONE BELLOWTHEN CAME THE MORNINGReleased Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Price: $10.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
That said, when writing about 'Then Came The Morning,' singer Zach Williams points to a different influence altogether:I was listening to a lot of Vegas-era Elvis when I started writing it. It has tinges of our gospel-music upbringing: The piano melody especially highlights the way my grandmother can bang on her old upright when she sings 'Uncloudy Day' every Thanksgiving. We recorded all the vocals together in the old church sanctuary at Dreamland Studios, and Aaron Dessner wrote all the wind, brass and strings with Vegas Elvis in mind.Then Came The Morning comes out on Tuesday 01-27-15

Price: $11.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
No Cities to Love is the first album in 10 years by Sleater-Kinney (guitarist/vocalist Carrie Brownstein, vocalist/guitarist Corin Tucker, and drummer Janet Weiss), who came crashing out of the '90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk's political insight and emotional impact. Formed in Olympia, WA in 1994, Sleater-Kinney were hailed as 'America's best rock band' by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006. No Cities to Love was produced by the bands longtime collaborator John Goodmanson.


TING TINGSSUPER CRITICALReleased Tuesday, January 13, 2015
Price: $8.99 (sale priced)Rock & Pop
THE TING TINGS--known for their massive hits That s Not My Name and Shut Up and Let Me Go, among others--approached this new album differently. Feeling uninspired, the two--Katie White and Jules De Martino--sought out an adventure in late 2012 which took them to Ibiza. As it turned out, unleashing their party spirit was exactly the impetus and momentum needed to craft something special and true to the starting spirit of their musical adventures. The result is SUPER CRITICAL, a hook-stuffed, introspective, modern disco record.
