Cloud Nothings [Last Building Burning]

October 19 street date. Right now, indie rock is centered around controlled solos instead of unpredictability, tight chords instead of jagged riffs, clean tones instead of rough edges. That much is evident by the comparisons thrown at Cloud Nothings, all touchstones from the past: the Wipers, Drive Like Jehu, Sunny Day Real Estate, Nirvana. The Cleveland four-piece want to keep doing this, to be a band that continues the evolution of barbed, rapid-fire, energetic rock without ever trying to replicate those artists, if it means this current era can have benchmark artists of their own. With Last Building Burning, their fifth full-length studio album, Cloud Nothings become the torchbearers they want to see in the world. Last Building Burning is the product of eight days with producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Wolves in the Throne Room, Boris) in Texas studio Sonic Ranch. Clocking in just over half an hour, the eight-song album sees Cloud Nothings capture their onstage appeal. Last Building Burning plays like the meeting point of Cloud Nothings’ catalog and is a return to Cloud Nothing’s sharpest form — the unhinged, feverish, guitar-heavy sound that they explode with onstage — without their early angst. LPS come in mirror foil jackets and include a free digital download.
Cult Leader [A Patient Man]

November 9 street date. Cult Leader is a chaotic band from Salt Lake City, Utah. “A Patient Man” was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge, Nails, High On Fire). From the first hits of opener “I Am Healed” Cult Leader take listeners on a sonic rollercoaster ride. Much of the album follows this blueprint. Songs like “Curse of Satisfaction”, “Craft of Mourning”, and “Share My Pain” are driven by a weave work of unorthodox metallic riffing and fueled by hyper-aggressive percussion. While the technical proficiency is impressive, it’s in their use of dynamics where they truly shine. The album contains four beautifully brooding epics; “To: Achlys”, “A World of Joy”, title track “A Patient Man”, and “The Broken Right Hand of God”. Each one of them carries a maturation and sense of melody that few “extreme” bands have within their arsenal. Proving that aggressive music still has much to offer the world in terms of originality, creativity, and emotion.
Current 93 [The Light Is Leaving Us All]

October 26 street date. New album from Current 93, everyone’s favourite Hallucinatory Cuneiform SuperGroup, three years in the making and shaping. The vinyl edition skips out in a gatefold sleeve, with an accompanying insert containing all lyrics and credits. The CD edition picknicks along in a gatefold digipak, again with an accompanying insert containing all lyrics and credits. C93 are possibly probably certainly perhaps: Alasdair Roberts, Aloma Ruiz Boada, Andrew Liles, Ben Chasny, David Tibet, Michael J. York, Ossian Brown, Reinier van Houdt, Rita Knuistingh Neven, and Thomas Ligotti. And Remember Remember—Your Future Cartoon Is As Soft As The Tarot!
Dinosaur Jr. [Ear Bleeding Country: The Best Of (2LP-white vinyl)]

October 26 street date. First issued in 2002, "Ear Bleeding Country" is the only career-spanning compilation of Dinosaur Jr. This is the first time this album has been made available on vinyl! The first six tracks are drawn from the band's early career in the 1980s, when they recorded for independent labels like Homestead and SST. Among them are the classic "Freak Scene" and their cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven". Most of the compilation samples the best of Dinosaur Jr.'s output after signing with Warner Bros in 1990, including "The Wagon", "Whatever's Cool With Me", "Out There", and "Feel The Pain". This deluxe white vinyl (double LP with gatefold sleeve and printed inner sleeves) has been remastered and includes original sleeve-notes by Byron Coley and a new introductory essay from Dinosaur Jr. fan Henry Rollins!
Direct Hit [Crown Of Nothing]

October 26 street date. DIRECT HIT deftly pivots from one style to the next over the 44 minutes that make up "Crown Of Nothing". Album opener "Different Universe" has a killer new-wave vibe, "Pain/Boredom" is a guaranteed circle pit starter, and "Bad Answer" is loaded with fuzz bass, a disco beat, and topped off with a sweet saxophone solo (because, why not?). Direct Hit weaves through genres with such precision and artistry that "Crown Of Nothing" feels like the most incredible mix CD you've ever heard!
Dr. John [Gris-Gris (180g-MONO/green vinyl)]

November 9 street date. Limited edition mono 180 gram, green vinyl reissue of the 1968 debut album from the king of the psychedelic bayou - the hypnotic, mystical and powerful sound of the swamp coming to life. As he became Dr. John (real name Mac Rebennack), it was his LA session work with musicians like Sonny & Cher, Canned Heat, and Zappa that allowed him to start conjuring up his visions of guitar psych-pop to walk alongside his authentic New Orleans upbringing. While "Gris Gris" contains moments that make it a type stamped symbol of its era, it might have well been made in outer space. Recorded in its own psychic and stylistic vacuum, the album borrows as heavily from the New Orleans musical culture in which he grew up as it does the looming continuous pulse of war, heavy drugs, and the end of the free love/hippie movement.
Fall [The Rough Trade Singles]

Please note new street date: November 9. The Rough Trade Singles collects The Fall’s four singles recorded for this influential label in 1980 and 1983 – How I Wrote ‘Elastic Man’ / City Hobgoblins, Totally Wired / Putta Block, The Man Whose Head Expanded / Ludd Gang and Kicker Conspiracy – none of which appeared on any of the band’s studio LPs. With 7-inches being the era’s vehicle for buzzing communiqués, The Fall would use the format for short-form, standalone works rather than as mere promotional devices for forthcoming albums. “Totally Wired” is often cited (and rightfully so) as The Fall’s most infectious tune – an amphetamine-fueled anthem with stuttering nods to forebears, yet too incisive to have been made by anyone else. “How I Wrote ‘Elastic Man’” is another mad hoedown, one reimagined for the post-punk age. While the playful rhythm machine on “The Man Whose Head Expanded” almost suggests danceability, Mark E. Smith’s idiosyncratic shriek on “Kicker Conspiracy” pierces through the twin drumming of Paul Hanley and Karl Burns and the group’s unpredictable / unmistakable racket. Together these songs remain some of the absolute best material The Fall would ever release. Superior Viaduct’s edition is the first time that The Rough Trade Singles has been available on vinyl domestically. Liner notes by Brian Turner.
Hiss Golden Messenger [Devotion (4CD box) Songs About Rivers And Spirits And Children]

Please note: new street date is November 16. Devotion: Songs About Rivers and Spirits and Children is a limited-edition deluxe box set which includes remastered reissues of the classic Hiss albums Bad Debt, Poor Moon, and Haw as well as Virgo Fool, a rarities compilation that will only be available physically as part of this collection. Both the 4-CD and 4-LP sets are housed in a cloth-wrapped, foil-stamped slipcase and feature original iconographic artwork by Sam Smith, an exclusive foldout poster, full lyrics, and new liner notes by New Yorker writer Amanda Petrusich and MOJO editor John Mulvey. The vinyl set also includes a digital download of all tracks. What struck me about Hiss Golden Messenger—and my absorption in these early records was instantaneous—is that Taylor’s songs are completely and unfailingly honest about how stupid and frustrating it is to be a person. But then, of course, he finds magnificence anyway: “Hallelujah anyhow” is how he put it later. —Amanda Petrusich
Jansch, Bert [Just A Simple Soul (2LP)]

October 19 street date. 2LP set features 27 tracks. From his 1965 iconic debut album, which changed folk music, Bert’s peerless musicality, songwriting and interpretation of traditional song has held generation after generation spellbound and inspired musicians in all genres. This is the first collection to cover his entire solo career, with insightful liner notes by Bernard Butler (Suede) who compiled this selection with the Bert Jansch Estate.
Mockasin, Connan [Jassbusters]

October 12 street date. Jassbusters is Connan Mockasin’s third album and first in five years. An unclassifiable, unconventional album that neither picks up from nor abandons the modes of 2013’s widely-embraced Caramel or its 2010 predecessor Forever Dolphin Love, Jassbusters foreshadows a five-part melodrama film titled Bostyn ‘n Dobsyn, created by Mockasin. Jassbusters soundtracks the unpredictable narrative of the film in eclectic, electric ways. Whether bending genres or collaborating with artists like James Blake, MGMT, and Charlotte Gainsbourg, Connan Mockasin has always maneuvered in mysterious ways. After touring with the likes of Radiohead and Neil & Liam Finn (Crowded House), the R&B surrealist continues assembling a cult around his theater, nay spectacle of life with Bostyn ‘n Dobsyn screenings and Jassbusters performances throughout October and November 2018. (With new press features from PITCHFORK, SPIN, VINYL FACTORY & many others!!)
NOFX [Greatest Songs Ever Written (2LP/2018 remaster)]

October 26 street date. Newly remastered and released on 2LP vinyl for the first time! Includes new bonus track! The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us) is a chunk of NOFX’s impressive career, lopped off into 2 LPs , including a brand new song specifically written and recorded for this release. NOFX is one of the best loved punk rock bands of all time because they never self doubt... continually making their legions of fans laugh and think. Twenty years of recording, touring, and being the most successful and sarcastic punk rock band in the independent world have resulted in a twenty-seven song LP that every NOFX fan must have.
Oldham, Will [Songs Of Love And Horror]

Please note new street date: November 2. Fall of 2018 sees the release of a celebrated lyrics archive that has been growing for over 25 years - the words to the songs sung by Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Palace Music. The author of the songs is Will Oldham, and the book, to be released by W.W. Norton, is titled "Songs of Love and Horror", the same as this album. As befits the nature of this project, the songs are sung and played by Will alone, in a setting enjoyed by fans of his music - that of one voice and one guitar, the better to savor the spare changes and starkly-cut lyrics, operating in quiet tension and ultimate collaboration. Will brings to the songs all that he has learned from his stagecrafting fellows over the years, singing new versions that quiver like fresh young things in the air of today. Starting with such classics as "Ohio River Boat Song", "I See A Darkness", and "The Way," the sequence wanders into deeper cuts, and before it is over, Will is singing other kinds of "greatest hits" - Richard and Linda Thompson's "Strange Affair," a Bonny contribution to the Refugee benefit album, "Most People," and a previously unheard writer's demo from years ago. This microcosmic revisitation touches on the breadth of Oldham's musical conception - the songs that came before him, the songs that came out of him, but didn't make it on to the album, the songs that never came out at all.
Paint [s/t (Pedrum Siadatian of Allah-Las)]

November 2 street date. The verb, the noun, the substance, the action, the command: make a mark! If fire came first, paint came second—they had paint all the way back in those caveman caves, and you can still understand that ancient handprint on the wall even though it’s 40,000 years old. Point being, it’s a primal act, or what you might call a good first step. So now this PAINT: guitarist/singer Pedrum Siadatian of the Allah-Las making his first solo record with his first solo recordings of his first solo songs. It’s simple: he’s making a mark. He’d started four-tracking strange little song-sketches as the Allah-Las finished their third album Calico Review in 2016— little song-sketches that wouldn’t fit the full band, but that indicated an outré sort of potential. These were slow-growing ideas fed by a certain acid-bitter poetry (Gregory Corso and John Lennon, for two) and by strands and lines unraveled from casually encountered prose or reportage. They’d derive a certain blurry life and sound from the murky music of Kevin Ayers or Syd Barrett, whose cultivations were as likely to bloom into gloom as beauty. PAINT’s first song was “Moldy Man,” grown almost in secret far from harsh light and hot air. His next was “True Love (Is Hard To Find).” With one, he could’ve been done, but with two, he knew he was at the start of something.
Paoro, Doe [Soft Power]

October 19 street date. Transforming pain into transcendence is the genius of many pop artists, but Doe Paoro brings an entirely new depth to that process. On her third album Soft Power, the L.A.-based singer/songwriter digs into her own frustration and anguish, and ultimately comes away with a newfound strength that’s profoundly inspiring. Soft Power thus bears a raw vitality that marks a major departure from Doe’s previous album. Naming Carole King among her inspirations, Doe notes that the new record’s more urgent feel comes partly from reconnecting with the instinctive approach of her earliest songwriting. Throughout the album, Doe infuses her songs with a rebellious spirit. A passionately charged track about misogyny, “Guilty” blends cascading guitar lines with sharply cutting lyrics (I know I’m not the first / that you made defend her word). . “Over” brings classic girl-group harmonies and smoldering vocal work to speak to the song’s central question: Now that I’m older / does it get easier / to get over? Several songs also confront the notion of setting boundaries, with “Projector” centering on “the refusal to let someone else superimpose their story onto yours” and “Walk Through the Fire” emerging as a brutal testament to the fact that “self-examination is ultimately a solo job – and there’s no easy way to do it.” The result is an album that’s undeniably potent in its emotional impact. “One thing I’ve continued to find through writing songs is the ability to alchemize painful experiences into something that’s useful and healing,” says Doe. “For me that’s the highest purpose of music—both in terms of what it offers to me and what I wish to offer to others.” (FOR FANS OF FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE, ST.VINCENT AND SKY FERREIRA)
Seasick Steve [Can U Cook?]

October 19 street date. SEASICK STEVE, fresh from a fantastic performance at London’s Hyde Park (6th July), is announcing the release of his new album, CAN U COOK? The album has Steve mixing up all of his much-loved ingredients to deliver a fresh new record that’s full of sunshine, as well as being a good ol’ Seasick mix of boogie, blues, rock, americana and folk-music.
Segall, Ty [Fudge Sandwich]

October 26 street date. Includes songs by War, The Spencer Davis Group, John Lennon, Funkadelic, The Dils, Neil Young, Gong, Amon Düül, Rudimentary Peni, The Grateful Dead, and Sparks!! - Take a tour through Ty Segall’s musical psyche with his new solo album, Fudge Sandwich, a collection of Segall’s take on eleven songs that were originally done by other people. These aren’t just cover versions. Cover versions happen at weddings and high school band battles. The songs here are what happens when someone loves a song so much, they need to get inside it and let it propagate and transform into what it would have been if they had actually written it. Equal parts reverence and reimagination, this album shows Segall inhabiting the world of a song’s intent, filtering it through the muse that drove this year’s exceptional Freedom’s Goblin. Cluttered, passionate and inspired, the songs are barely recognizable, irresistible and by album’s end, present a cohesive collection that stands proudly alongside the best of Segall’s considerable output. Includes songs by War, The Spencer Davis Group, John Lennon, Funkadelic, The Dils, Neil Young, Gong, Amon Düül, Rudimentary Peni, The Grateful Dead, and Sparks!!
Super Unison [Stella]

October 26 street date. Oakland, CA trio Super Unison features Meghan O’Neil (formerly of PUNCH) on bass and vocals, Kevin DeFranco on guitar, and Justin Renninger (formerly of Snowing) on drums. Formed in 2014, the band released their acclaimed album “Auto” on Deathwish in 2017. Their new album “Stella” was recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Jawbreaker), produced by Don Devore (Ink & Dagger), and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). It is an aggressive and sonically dynamic outpouring of post punk emotion. Though they tackle dark and personal subject matter, they ultimately find a light that cuts through the dark, and a way to get through the loss and loneliness we all face.
Tigers Jaw [Tigers Jaw (10 year anniversary deluxe/bonus flexi/zine/colour)]

November 2 street date. Since it’s initial limited release in 2008, Tigers Jaw’s self-titled album has become a reference point for most underground indie rock to come after it. To celebrate the ten year anniversary of this iconic album, Tigers Jaw & Run For Cover Records present this deluxe anniversary reissue is packed with special features: A zine with alternate photos from the original album art sessions, a collection of stories and memories from, Nick Hamm (Citizen), Georgia Maq (Camp Cope), Jeff Casazza (RFC), Walter Schreifels (Quicksand), Phoebe Bridgers, Ben Russin (Title Fight) & many more, full color photo 7” flexi record with an alternate version of “Chemicals”, limited edition color vinyl, and a full album digital download code.
Touche Amore [10 Years / 1000 Shows (2LP) Live At the Regent Theater]

Please note new street date: November 2. February 16, 2018 marked the 10-year anniversary of the first show ever played by Los Angeles natives Touche’ Amore’. To celebrate this anniversary the band played their 1000th show at the Regent Theater in downtown LA , and this incred- ible event was captured on their new live album, 10 Years/1000 Shows – Live At The Regent Theater. Featuring 27 tracks, spanning the band’s entire catalog. Recorded live by Robert Cheeseman and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at Godcity Studio in Salem, MA. For fans of Title Fight, LaDispute and Tigers Jaw.
V/A [Harmony In My Head (3CD): UK Power Pop & New Wave 1977-81]

October 26 street date. "Harmony In My Head" is another of Cherry Red's celebrations of a bygone era - this time, the boom in Power Pop and New Wave which followed the Punk explosion in 1977. This triple-CD box set spins off the success of the 4-CD compilation "Action Time Vision" (2016), which documented Punk on independent labels. The collection includes many of the New Wave/Power Pop scene's biggest hitters alongside the more melodic Punk bands. Name acts include Elvis Costello, Squeeze, Buzzcocks, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Nick Lowe, The Jags and Wreckless Eric, who are joined by other less successful but nevertheless key players (The Records, The Freshies, The Flys, etc.) as well as a host of rare 45s on tiny labels, many of which have never been on CD before. The deluxe clamshell package includes a weighty booklet full of illustrations, with a 12,000-word sleeve-note incorporating band-by-band biographies by compiler David Wells.
V/A [Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs Present State Of The Union (2LP)]

November 2 street date. 180g blue vinyl double LP edition of the new compilation from Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs. "State Of The Union" follows on from their highly acclaimed "English Weather" and "Paris In The Spring" compilations. With clear parallels between today's fractured country and the USA fifty years ago, this is a fascinating condensation of what Americans were thinking when they turned on the TV, or the radio, or simply walked down Main Street in 1968. The nation's youth had loudly made their feelings clear, but now the older, pre-Beatles generations began to look at the country - with urban riots, Vietnam, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy - and wonder what the hell was happening. 24 tracks from artists such as Elvis Presley, Eartha Kitt, Roy Orbison, Bobby Darin, The Beach Boys, Mel Torme, and many more.  Also available on CD (Cat # CDCHD1533).
V/A [Cover Me: The Eddie Hinton Songbook]

November 2 street date. The new volume in Ace's "songwriter" series looks at Muscle Shoals cult legend Eddie Hinton. Eddie was a fixture of the Shoals recording scene in the mid-late 60s. As well as being a prolific and immediately recognisable session guitarist, and a great singer who sadly recorded far too infrequently, Eddie regularly wrote fine songs with a peer group that at various times included Donnie Fritts and Dan Penn. "Cover Me" features a comprehensive selection of Eddie's best-known copyrights, many of which are now regarded as classics of 60s southern soul. Not all of Eddie’s songs are as well-known as his biggest hit, the much-recorded "Breakfast In Bed", but there are several others here that could and should have been just as commercially successful. Artists would always be glad to record whatever Eddie submitted for their consideration. You only have to look at this CD's cast list, which includes Bobby Womack, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Mink Deville, Candi Staton, Percy Sledge, Cher, and Lulu to name but a few, to see the calibre of talent Eddie's copyrights attracted.
V/A [Switched-On Eugene (2LP)]

October 19 street date. Switched-On Eugene documents the Eugene Electronic Music Collective and some of the many synthed-out figures in and around Oregon’s iconic hippie stronghold during the 1980s. Whether connected by membership, geography, or the tape trading scene, the artists in and around the EEMC shared compelling visions of the future we now inhabit, vividly captured on home-recorded tapes and distributed via zines, classifieds, and local radio. Switched-On Eugene is a deep dive into a heretofore forgotten sonic microcosm unlike any other. (available on CD & 2LP w/ exclusive tracks)
