Alkaline Trio [Is This Thing Cursed? (180g)]

August 31 CD street date. (LP street date October 19) Across two decades, eight albums, and a multitude of singles, splits, and EPs, Alkaline Trio has built a reputation as a defining act in punk rock’s modern era. Formed in Chicago by vocalist-guitarist Matt Skiba in 1996, the band would come into its own with its debut album Goddammit in 1998. Since then, the band has continually evolved, incorporating new influences with each record while achieving artistic, critical, and commercial success along the way. It’s been 5 years since Alkaline Trio released their last studio album, My Shame Is True. In that time, they’ve toured the world, sold over a million records, including a 20th Anniversary – 8 LP live box set, recorded on their 2014-15 Past Live tour. Since those Past Live shows, Andriano and drummer Derek Grant both released solo albums, and Skiba joined blink-182, releasing the chart-topping album California with the band. “Is This Thing Cursed?” will prove that good, new music is worth the wait.
Bachmann, Eric [No Recover]

September 7 street date. There was something sinister about Crooked Fingers, both the name of the project and the music that Eric Bachmann wrote at the helm of its ever-shifting lineups over 15 years. He retired the moniker a couple of years ago, but with his third album under his own name, the transformation feels gorgeous and final and irreversible: No Recover. The drunken louts and red devil dawns are a thing of the past now, monuments to a different time. Bachmann, husband and recent father, has some new lenses through which to view the world. Eric Bachmann of 2018 seems to view life with a sort of disgruntled maturity and righteous resignation. No Recover is both harrowing and beautiful, and its mellowness can be deceiving. The album is mostly just him, a classical guitar, some treated rhythm tracks, and otherworldly drop-ins from singer Avery Leigh Draut and guitarist Eric Johnson, Bachmann’s old pal from their Archers of Loaf days. He’s got a lot on his mind, only some of it pretty. He’s got a lifetime of experience behind him, and a catalog that runs the gamut from fiery to scary to simply beautiful, sometimes all at once. But it also feels like a new beginning. Here’s to another 25 (or more!) years of watching him grow.
Barstool Preachers [Grazie Governo (Black vinyl + 2 Stencils+ Download)]

August 24 street date. (Regular black vinyl version includes 2 giant stencils + download) Every decade or so a band comes along that inadvertently redefines punk simply by writing songs from the heart. They blur genres and change everything. Only the truly authentic, creative, and passionate punks ever write those ‘classic’ albums we all cherish. This is what The Preachers will do. Their songs are going to be the soundtrack to your summer. Their anthems about the injustices of the world and broken hearts are going to be your obsession. They are going to take over the world. Grazie Governo (“Thank You Government”) is the album that everyone angry and frustrated with the current political situation has been waiting for. The intelligent and passionate lyrics are backed by the unique, catchy, and creative songwriting that this band is becoming known for. It truly exemplifies the band’s incredible talents and uniqueness, and the energy and commitment that these UK upstarts are turning so many heads with. With the success of their 2016 debut album Blatant Propaganda, this very motivated group of friends got some unreal touring opportunities, and have traveled a LOT of miles sharing their tunes and energy with thousands and thousands of people—and they’re not letting up anytime soon. For the full experience, make the effort to see THE PREACHERS live and better understand why so many people are hailing them as one of the best new bands around! This album, and their previous full-length speak volumes, but seeing this full package in the flesh truly proves that they are the real deal.

Faust [The Faust Tapes]

August 31 street date. This first-time domestic release of The Faust Tapes on vinyl reproduces the original sleeve design, featuring artwork by Bridget Riley. (Originally released in 1973 on Virgin) Faust stand among the most influential creative forces to have emerged from Germany in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Along with Can, Agitation Free, Neu! and others, Faust rejected the Anglo-American norms of rock ’n’ roll to start a back-to-basics and uniquely Teutonic revolution in sound—later dubbed by the UK press with the semi-derogatory term “krautrock.” Faust would reach near-mythical status through a series of classic albums recorded between 1970 and 1973 at their secluded Wümme studio. As Dave Segal writes in the liner notes, “There’s no consensus about which Faust album represents their zenith. But a survey of the group’s fans would likely find the collage-heavy messterpiece The Faust Tapes triumphing. Its freewheeling, jump-cut nature and unlikely earworm moments conspire for more what-the-fuck epiphanies per minute than just about any other record about which Krautrocksampler author Julian Cope has raved.” Comprised of twenty odd tape-manipulation experiments and freak-out jams, The Faust Tapes stashes away some of the band’s best-known songs. “Flashback Caruso,” with its delicate acoustic guitar and Rudolf Sosna’s airy vocals, could easily have appeared on So Far or Faust IV, while on “J’ai Mal Aux Dents,” Jean-Hervé Peron’s playful lyrics and this ecstatic, era-defining riff perfectly represent Faust’s magical mischievousness.
Frights [Hypochondriac]

August 24 street date. Hypochondriac, the third full-length album from San Diego band The Frights, is an album full of addictively catchy songs about fear and frustration. “I’ve gotten better with time, but I’m pretty paranoid about most things, especially health issues—I think everything’s killing me,” says Mikey Carnevale, vocalist/guitarist for The Frights. “That, mixed with anxiety, means that I can be a real baby. All of these songs address this in one way or another.” The album is their first full-length for Epitaph Records, who signed The Frights in early 2018. Produced by FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper, Hypochondriac follows The Frights’ 2016 album You Are Going To Hate This and marks a period of major creative growth for the band (which also includes bassist Richard Dotson, drummer Marc Finn, and guitarist Jordan Clark). “I wrote every song on an acoustic guitar, which is something I made a point to do,” says Carnevale. Throughout Hypochondriac, The Frights build a brilliant tension between their shiny hooks and painful lyrics, their goofball spirit and melancholy outlook. In the end, the album unfolds as their most emotionally honest work so far, just as the band intended it to be.
Hawkwind [Road To Utopia]

Sept. 14 street date. For their 31st studio album, HAWKWIND have collaborated with songwriter and conductor Mike Batt to recreate a selection of Hawkwind songs with an extra, orchestral ingredient. Hawkwind invited Mike to help create arrangements for some of their most celebrated songs. Tracks such as "Quark, Strangeness and Charm", "We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago", and "Psychic Power" are re-rooted acoustically, then embellished with a strength and majesty only Hawkwind can produce. "The Watcher" features trademark guitar licks from special guest Eric Clapton. The limited edition vinyl comes with a gatefold sleeve.
Hopkins, Lightnin' [Lightnin' Hopkins]

Please note: new street date is August 17. Remastered from original 1959 Master Tapes, Classic Folkways style tip-on jackets featuring original liner notes. Texas bluesman Samuel “Lightnin’” Hopkins’ musical career was reignited by this 1959 release. With the aid of a little gin and a borrowed acoustic guitar, musicologist Sam Charters recorded Hopkins in his tiny apartment in Houston, Texas. The result is nine tracks of pure country blues and Hopkins’ reminiscences of his time performing with Blind Lemon Jeerson.This vinyl reissue is part of Folkways Records’ 70th anniversary celebration series, revisiting some of the most iconic and inuential albums released on the record label, starting with Lightnin’ Hopkins (FSLP03822), Woody Guthrie (FWLP02485), and Jospeh Spence (FWLP03844).
L7 [Hungry For Stink (ltd red vinyl)]

September 7 street date. L7 wasn’t just one of the best all-female bands of the late ‘80s and ‘90s; they were one of the best bands, period, paving the way for the grunge and riot grrrl movements with killer songs, crunching riffs, and badass attitude. And now, with the original line-up of Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch, and Dee Plakas back together and out on the road, and a new documentary out, it is way past time to reissue their 1994 masterpiece Hungry for Stink for the first time on vinyl. This is the record with such fan favorites as “Fuel My Fire” and “Andres,” along with “Shirley,” their tribute to drag racer Shirley Muldowney, and “Questioning My Sanity,” which unflinchingly tackles the subject of depression, among other highlights. Our Real Gone reissue includes the lyric sheet that came with the original (and very rare) LP release, and comes in a red vinyl pressing limited to 1200 copies. Must be turned on loud or not at all!
Mothers [Render Another Ugly Method (2LP)]

September 7 street date. Mothers attempt to exist in two places at once - both singular and collaborative, sprawling and concise, present and distant. Kristine Leschper, songwriter and founding member of the project, explains that it is in the space between opposites that she finds herself. The multifaceted is, by nature, fragmented - each facet reflecting a slightly different perspective of the whole. On their latest record, Render Another Ugly Method, the band attempts to gain an expanded view of its surroundings through splintered sound, thought, and image. Leschper began exploring songwriting when she moved to Athens, Georgia as a teenager. Inspired by the growth that studying art allowed her and energized by the buzzing southern town, she started to perform publicly in 2013 and quickly developed local acclaim for her stark, unflinchingly vulnerable songs. During this time, she met many local artists and musicians, among them Matthew Anderegg, whom she quickly recognized as an artistic kindred spirit and friend. The following year they began working together to flesh out and arrange a collection of songs she had written, which would become the project’s 2016 debut release, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired. Released in 2016, the album kicked off a sprawling eight months of touring across the US, UK and Europe, as the group honed their take on left-of center indie rock with an explosive and surprising live show that displayed how forceful the songs translated to a full-band setting. “ Within Mothers, Leschper and Anderegg have remained a creative constant, with other collaborators changing over time. Render Another Ugly Method sees the remnants of Leschper and Anderegg, Chris Goggans and Drew Kirby in musical conversation, through cut-up songs that were torn apart and rebuilt over and over again.
Murder By Death [The Other Shore (180g)]

August 24 street date."Murder By Death’s eighth full-length album The Other Shore is a space-western about a ravaged Earth, its fleeing populace, and a relationship in jeopardy. It’s an epic journey rocketing toward the unknown, both within the characters represented in these 11 songs, and through the band’s ever-evolving sound. As trailblazers of the early 2000s indie-Americana style, the Louisville, KY-based quintet finds a way of taking tried & true rock-and-roll and knocking it slightly off axis, into tottering revolutions of something eerie, emotional, immediate, lush, and uniquely theirs. As the album and voyage progress, the atmosphere transitions from earthy to cosmic, sober to festive—from folksy Midwestern indie rock and piano-laden devil-on-one-shoulder/angel-on-the-other Leonard Cohen-style balladry, to buoyant new wave a la The Cure, to celebratory jangly singalongs. The Other Shore pits quantifiable reality against incalculable newness. The duality of big and broad vs. microscopic and narrow is ever-present, especially as the group explores untapped genres, dynamic and emotional touches, intersecting and introspective storylines, and remote edges of the galaxy. Welcome: After nearly 20 years, thousands of performances around the world, and eight albums—you’ve landed on your new Murder By Death.”
Oh Sees [Smote Reverser (2LP)]

August 17 street date. Crack the coffers, Oh Sees have spawned another frothy album of head-destroying psych-epics to grok and rock out to. Notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of Memory Of A Cut Off Head-alum and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas, while the Paul Quattrone / Dan Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, whilst Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts. Aside from the familiar psych-scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there’s a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer’s made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Destroyer is the artistic restlessness underpinning its flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and omnivorous appetite seems all the more superhuman!
Pentangle [Sweet Child (2LP) (Ltd 50th Anniversary Sky Blue Vinyl)]

September 7 street date. Pentangle is one of those bands that, after you hear them for the first time, you have to turn your friends on to their sound. And what a unique sound it is, too; the interlocking interplay of guitar masters Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, the piercingly beautiful vocals of Jacqui McShee, and the sublimely agile shuffle of bassist Danny Thompson and percussionist Terry Cox create a style that seamlessly straddles jazz, traditional British folk, rock, blues, and even classical. And, perhaps most importantly, it swings! Sweet Child, their second album, is probably their finest hour (and a half); the first disc of this double-LP captures the quintet live at Royal Festival Hall on June 29, 1968, while disc two brings them into IBC studios, all under the magisterial eye of legendary producer Shel Talmy. You’ll hear everything from Mingus covers (of “Haitian Fight Song” and “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”) to trad folk (“No More My Lord;” “Bruton Town”) to Pentangle originals (“In Time;” “In Your Mind,” “A Woman Like You,” and the title tune) rendered in their trademark lyrical fashion. For this LP reissue, we have stayed true to the wonderful gatefold art originally created by Peter Blake, the artist who designed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and pressed up a limited edition of 700 copies in sky blue vinyl. A beautiful record that deserves repeated spins…a proud addition, on the 50th anniversary of its release, to our Real Gone Music roster!
Posies [Frosting On the Beater (2LP)]

August 24 street date. Signed to Geffen Records, The Posies recorded 3 releases, 1990’s Dear 23, Frosting On The Beater in 1993, and Amazing Disgrace in 1996. Over the years, the CDs have been in and out of print, there have been inconsistent presences on streaming, and the LPs either long out of print or not issued at all depending on the territory. Good news: all that’s about to change. Frosting On The Beater is back, re-issued by Omnivore Recordings. The album will be released as a double CD set: one CD containing the original album, remastered from the original analog tapes, plus enough bonus material to fi ll out the rest of the CD; and another full CD of more bonus material. Don’t expect just a repackaging of material already available on our 2000 boxed set of outtakes— 15 of Frosting On The Beater’s 31 bonus tracks on this reissue have never been heard! Frosting On The Beater will now stretch across two LPs and will be mastered at 45 rpm from the original tapes. We made the decision to stick to just the original albums for the vinyl release, to give it room to breathe across two glorious slabs of wax. So, if bonus tracks are your thing, the 2-CD set will have you covered Catch The Posies on their 30th Anniversary tour in 2018 too!
Saintseneca [Pillar Of Na]

August 31 street date. Saintseneca’s Zac Little has been thinking a lot about memory. Not necessarily his memories, though they creep in often, too. Rather, he mulls over the idea of memory itself: its resilience, its haziness, how it slips away as we try to hang on, the way it resurfaces despite our best efforts to forget. Memory is the common thread running throughout the Columbus, OH folk-punk band’s fourth album, Pillar of Na, arriving in late summer via ANTIRecords. Following 2015’s critically lauded Such Things, the new album’s name is rooted in remembrance, referencing the Genesis story of Lot’s wife who looks back at a burning Sodom after God instructs her not to. She looks back, and God turns her into a pillar of salt. “Na,” meanwhile, is the chemical symbol for sodium. “Nah” is a passive refusal and the universal song word. It means nothing and stands for nothing. It is “as it is.” Musically, Pillar of Na is Saintseneca’s most ambitious album to date, with Little aiming to incorporate genre elements he’d rarely heard in folk. “I wanted to use the idiom of folk-rock, or whatever you want to call it, and to try to do something that had never been done before,” Little explains. I told Mike Mogis I wanted Violent Femmes meets the new Blade Runner soundtrack. I’m looking for the intersection between Kendrick Lamar and The Fairport Convention.”
Sleep [Leagues Beneath]

August 31 street date. THIRD MAN / FAB EXCLUSIVE!! 180g LP with die-cut jacket. Leagues Beneath is the first release immediately following Sleep’s long-prophesied, critically-acclaimed opus The Sciences. Recorded as a part of a series of songs for Adult Swim, this 12” single is a testament to what has made The Sciences such a success: bottomless tone, spacetime-melting riffs and a unparalleled aural experience from start to finish. Leagues Beneath is a full 17 minute plunge, now available to experience on black vinyl.
Swervedriver [Ejector Seat Reservation (2LP)]

August 24 street date. The Oxford based alternative rock band Swervedriver released their third studio album Ejector Seat Reservation in 1995. Despite the little promotion and disappointing sales the album is widely considered as one of their strongest records. While listening to this record you’ll hear the true quality of this hidden gem. Besides the alternative rock the shoegaze and even bluesy influences are woven into their music. The fusion and variety of the songs which they recorded for this album are a little less on the shoegaze side compared to their previous two albums Raise and Mezcal Head. Ejector Seat Reservation is the band’s most complete record, best experienced as a whole. After splitting up in 1998 Swervedriver reunited in 2008 for touring purposes. After seventeen years they released their fifth album I Wasn’t Born to Lose You. The Ejector Seat Reservation package includes a 4-page booklet and is available as a first pressing of 2.500 individually numbered copies on coloured (silver & black mixed) 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
Swingin' Utters [Peace And Love]

August 31 street date. Since their 2011 comeback album, street-punk mainstays SWINGIN' UTTERS have been on a tear, releasing two more new albums, a career spanning greatest hits album, and relentless touring - building on their hallmark aesthetic of classic street-punk, with a wide array of folk, country, garage-rock, and even honky-tonk embellishments. Once again Johnny, Darius, and Jack have collaborated to put together 15 songs that are as catchy as they are cohesive. "Peace And Love" is a true testament to the creative dexterity of these talented songwriters. With the addition of Luke Ray (Cobra Skulls), and Tony Teixeira (Cobra Skulls, Western Addiction), the band have taken on a whole new life while maintaining that classic Utters sound that has placed them in a league of their own for 3 decades.
Territories [s/t (Colour vinyl + 12 Flexi-Pic-Discs + Download)]

August 31 street date. Color vinyl (beer with black smoke & white splatter) includes all 12 different promo picture flexis and vinyl sticker + Download!! Climbing from the ashes of long time Canadian stronghold band KNUCLEHEAD, this new arrangement - presented to the world as TERRITORIES - is arguably better, and bound for even greater things! The song writing is phenomenal, and together as a composition, these tracks paint a picture that is impossible to misinterpret. Intelligent, focused and passionate lyrics drive these unbelievably well written songs home. To see such potential in a new band and album, and to see how viral the songs have become so quickly, has been inspiring. Seeing everyone that they have touched so far has been incredible. Every single track on this album will strike a chord with someone, and be their favorite song this summer! The full-length was even pushed back to accommodate releasing all twelve songs as individual picture flexi singles prior to the release of the whole album. People have been eating them up at record stores and venues, and in magazines all over the world; and the videos are being streamed in droves as well! Tune in and get these tunes stuck in your head too - you’ll love it!
Thrice [Palms]

September 14 street date. Thrice created Palms with a free-form and fluid approach to the album’s sonic element. The result is their most expansive work to date, encompassing everything from viscerally charged post-hardcore to piano-driven balladry. To carve out that eclectic sound, Thrice enlisted trusted producer Eric Palmquist for the recording of the percussion and vocal tracks, and self-produced all of the guitar parts on Palms. “When we track our own stuff we tend to be far less neurotic about getting every note perfect,” says singer Dustin Kensrue. “It’s more about getting the right emotion out of the performance, so that it connects on a deeper level.” Kensrue, co-founded Thrice with guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge in 1998. Hailing from Orange County, California, the band formed when three of its members were still in high school, making their debut with the kinetic punk/hardcore hybrid of the 2000 album Identity Crisis. Their breakthrough arrived with 2003’s The Artist in the Ambulance—Thrice’s third full-length, whose singles “All That’s Left” and “Stare at the Sun” each landed on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. Palms is the band’s first release since signing to Epitaph in early 2018, and the album matches its raw passion with a measured intensity, a rare feat for an album so informed by the volatility of the times. “Even though some of these songs are really aggressive-sounding, I wanted to make sure they never felt like finger-pointing, especially at a time when there’s so much talking past each other,” says Kensrue. Within that approach, Thrice reveal their profound commitment to making an enduring impact on the listener.
V/A [Teen Expo: The Cleopatra Label (2LP)]

August 17 street date. From a basement in New Jersey, Tommy Falcone remade himself into a DIY Phil Spector. From 1962 to 1970, he founded and ran Cleopatra Records, discovered and mentored young Garden State talent, wrote songs and produced wild studio effects, and quit his day job to promote it all himself. Trained as an accordionist, Falcone had a whirlwind imagination and an omnivorous approach to genre, expressed through acts like the Centuries, the Tabbys, Johnny Silvio, the Inmates, Bernadette Carroll, the Hallmarks, Vickie & the Van Dykes, the Shandillons, Eugene Viscione, the Shoestring, and more. Cleopatra became a time-capsule of every 1960s pop style imaginable - garage rock, psychedelia, surf, girl groups, soul, novelties, exotica, even a crooner - a kaleidoscope of sound in search of the ever-elusive hit record.
V/A [Basement Beehive: the Girl Group Underground]

September 14 street date. Who do we become when we live our dreams? It’s all here - the high hairdos, the dreams and schemes, the tender camp, the wedding bell fantasias and chaste tragedies. Sister acts, studio receptionists, classmates, angelic voices of the 1960s; some legendary, many hidden in the basement of expired rainbows. Gathered on this deluxe double CD are 56 (28 on the 2LP) foiled escape attempts, now free to soar in girl group heaven.
Waxahatchee [Great Thunder EP]

September 7 street date. On September 7, Katie Crutchfield’s ever-shifting musical project Waxahatchee returns with the Great Thunder EP. Featuring a collection of songs written with now-dormant experimental recording group Great Thunder while Crutchfield was also writing the Waxahatchee albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp, the original recordings have mostly faded into obscurity. Unearthing and reimagining them with producer Brad Cook at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin was a cathartic experience, she says. On the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Out in the Storm, Crutchfield found herself looking to take a sharp turn away from the more rock-oriented influences of her recent records towards her more folk and country roots. “I would say that it is a complete 180 from the last record: super stripped-down, quiet, and with me performing solo, it’s a throwback to how I started,” writes Crutchfield. “Overall, the EP is a warm, kind of vibey recording.” Some of the songs on Great Thunder, like “Chapel of Pines” and “Singer’s No Star,” stayed the same and will be recognizable to those intensely familiar with Crutchfield’s catalog to date, while closer “Takes So Much” was built back up on piano from the bones of the original version, surprising even the songwriter: “Until then, I didn’t realize how beautiful this song was.” As Crutchfield entered April Base to record, she became ill but opted to forge on, beautifully stretching her voice to its emotional limits.
White, Jack [Ice Station Zebra/Corporation]

August 24 street date. The third single from Jack White’s critically-acclaimed third solo album “Boarding House Reach.” Featuring artwork that connects with previous singles’ artwork by The Third Man, Rob Jones & Nat Strimpopulos.
