Blue Stingrays [Surf-n-Burn]

September 24 street date. Long out of print on vinyl since its 1997 release. The Blue Stingrays' story starts in '59...the band formed that summer and created a new sound. that sound was surf music. Like those who roamed the globe for the perfect wave, The Blue Stingrays nailed the perfect sound when their twang rang 'round the world. A singular devotion to surf guitar music became a way of life for them and they considered it to be the only artform profound enough to truly express the passion in man's soul. THE FACTS in 2021: Upon its original release, the members of Blue Stingrays were touted as iconic yet anonymous surf rock pioneers. Now, after decades of whispers and speculation, the identities of these mysterious musicians have been officially confirmed as guitarist Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers/Fleetwood Mac/The Dirty Knobs), bassist Ron Blair (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers) and drummer Randall Marsh (Mudcrutch).

Cadence Weapon [Parallel World (silver mirror coloured)]

September 10 street date. Cadence Weapon is Edmonton-born, Toronto-based rapper, producer, writer and poet Rollie Pemberton. Pemberton has released four albums, all of which have been nominated for the Polaris Prize. Short listed for this year's Polaris Prize, "Parallel World" is an album that seeks to unearth the alternate reality that lies beneath the surface of our society, a record that functions as a mirror that exposes the distortions and inequalities that we typically ignore. Cadence's most politically charged album, the songs on "Parallel World" touch on themes of systemic racism, structural inequality, police profiling, gentrification, the internet's pervasive effects on our lives, and the surveillance state that disproportionately punishes Black people. Using elements of trap, drill, grime and acid house, "Parallel World" is the soundtrack for the dystopian future we've somehow found ourselves in. Limited silver mirror coloured vinyl edition.
Charles, Ray [True Genius (6CD/book/box)]

September 10 street date. In celebration of what would have been Ray Charles' 90th birthday, Tangerine Records, the label he founded in 1962, is proud to announce the September 10, 2021 release of "True Genius" - the ultimate Ray Charles collection.

Scott Galloway and a special message from the one and only Quincy Jones.
Duster [1975 (EP) (mostly ghost white)]

October 1 street date. Y2K prepper-rock for the underemployed. Tracked at home in 1999, the "1975" EP expands on "Stratosphere"'s slacker-positive dreamscape, with layers of guitars both clean and fuzzy, humming organ, and - gasp! - a drum machine. Needle down, candles on.
Edwards, Kathleen [Failer (orange vinyl)]

October 8 street date. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards will release a FIRST TIME PRESSING of her widely-celebrated debut album "Failer", originally released in 2002. Heralded by Pitchfork as an "accomplished debut," the album will be available on 140gram "orange crush" vinyl.
Explosions In the Sky [Big Bend (An Original Soundtrack for Public Television) (2LP-black)]

October 1 street date. In 2019, Explosions In The Sky was approached to craft the score to a new documentary about a place with which, as native Texans, they were very familiar: Big Bend National Park The hour-long film intimately follows the lives of native animals amid expansive aerial views of the iconic desert landscape that makes up one of the grandest natural wonders in the world. The band set these sights to an inspired, melodic, and meaningful blend of acoustic guitar, slide guitar, strings, piano, bells, and drums that feels as alive and diverse - and vast and lonely - as the place it depicts. "Big Bend (An Original Soundtrack for Public Television)" takes that mesmerizing score and recontextualizes it as a standalone album. Those brief cues have been expanded and transformed into a thoughtful, gorgeous full-length album that recalls some of the band's most magical and memorable moments from their storied history.
Jones, Caleb Landry [Gadzooks Vol. 1 (black)]

September 24 street date. Caleb Landry Jones is a continual creator. The Texan born star found fame as an actor - you'll recognise him from key roles in "X-Men: First Class", "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", amongst others - but music is perhaps his first love, and his source of greatest comfort. A chance encounter with famed auteur Jim Jarmusch brought him into the orbit of Sacred Bones, and the stalwart independent released Caleb's 2020 debut album "The Mother Stone". Psychedelic in a defiantly non-retro way, this indulgent, freewheeling trip won critical acclaim, but masked a secret - he'd already finished another album. "Gadzooks Vol. 1" is unlike anything you've heard before - comparisons range from Skip Spence's fractured masterpiece ‘Oar’ through to skewed troubadour Robyn Hitchcock, via John Lennon's black moods on ‘The White Album’ and Frank Zappa's caustic surrealism. Part of a flood-tide of creativity - as its title suggests, a second half to this album is already on the horizon - "Gadzooks Vol. 1" is thrilling, shocking, and wonderfully entertaining. Each song starts and finishes in entirely unique places, often totally divorced from each other.
Lay, Shannon [Geist]

October 8 street date. "Geist" feels like a window - or a mirror - into possibilities of the self and beyond. Shannon Lay's new album is tender intensity, placeless and ethereal. It exists in the chasms of the present -- a world populated by shadow selves, spiritual awakenings, déjà vu, and past lives. "Something sleeps inside us", Lay insists on the opening track, and that's the guiding philosophy throughout. A winding, golden, delicate thread of intuition that explores the unknown, the possibility. Its title, "Geist", the German word for spirit, is rife with an otherworldly presence, the suggestion of another. The promise that you are never alone. As a whole, "Geist" is both esoteric and accessible. Features an impressive list of collaborators, including Ty Segall and members of Woods, Cibo Matto, Sharon Van Etten's band, Wand, Heatwarmer, Mega Bog, and Bonny Prince Billy. Limited first vinyl pressing is on on clear with orange and green vinyl.
Letts, Don [Late Night Tales Presents Version Excursion (2LP-180g/black)]

September 24 street date. Don Letts' slippery and unorthodox career is somewhat hard to define, without taking a few detours around London, New York, and Jamaica. He began his working life managing the dauntingly hip Acme Attractions on Chelsea's Kings Road, where he made a mark with his attitude, dress and, especially, the pounding dub reggae that vibrated the shop’s walls. His first gig as a DJ at the short-lived Roxy in Neal Street, became mythical for turning a generation of punks on to reggae. In the 1980s, he was part of Mick Jones’ new venture, Big Audio Dynamite and his innovative use of samples were a core part of their sound. This version excursion crosses time space and genre, with reggae and dub artists (and artists influenced by reggae and dub) such as John Holt, Khruangbin, Ghetto Priest, OBF, and Matumbi covering tracks from from The Beach Boys to The Beatles, Nina Simone to Marvin Gaye, The Bee Gees to Kool & The Gang, The Clash to Joy Division, and beyond.
Low [Hey What]

Please note new street date: September 24. Focusing on their craft, staying out of the fray, and holding fast their faith to find new ways to express the discord and delight of being alive, to turn the duality of existence into hymns we can share, Low present "Hey What". These ten pieces - each built around their own instantaneous, undeniable hook - are turbocharged by the vivid textures that surround them. The ineffable, familiar harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker break through the chaos like a life raft. Layers of distorted sound accrete with each new verse - building, breaking, colossal then restrained, a solemn vow only whispered. There will be time to unravel and attribute meaning to the music and art of these times, but the creative moment looks FORWARD, with teeth. "Hey What" is Low's thirteenth full-length release in twenty-seven years, and their third with producer BJ Burton.
McCaughan, Mac [The Sound Of Yourself]

September 24 street date. Throughout his career fronting Superchunk and Portastatic, Mac McCaughan has channeled more than his share of angst into a microphone, resulting in undeniable rock anthems. So how can a voice so familiar to others still seem foreign to its owner? On "The Sound of Yourself", McCaughan's second release under his own name, he explores that question fully, shooting his voice through a prism and refracting it across these songs in new and rewarding ways. McCaughan leaned into allowing randomness and accidents to catalyze his compositions. Instrumentals make up nearly half of "The Sound of Yourself", and are integral to the album's atmosphere. While the pop-oriented tracks hint at sounds explored on "Non-Believers", McCaughan's recent scoring work and frequent excursions with synthesizers and sequencers add a particularly crystalline spaciness akin to The Durutti Column and Bowie's Berlin trilogy.
Numan, Gary [Warriors (orange)]

September 24 street date. LP reissue of Gary Numan's fifth album "Warriors", on limited edition orange vinyl. Originally released in 1983 and co-produced with Bill Nelson, the album continues Numan's ambient-funk experimentations and has aged very well. Gary spoke about "Warriors" in an interview years ago - he said "I still like a lot of the Warriors stuff and Bill Nelson did a lot of very inventive things on it which, because of our differences, I failed to appreciate at the time. I think the Mad Max image convinced a lot of people, the press especially, that it was a sci-fi album. Much of it though was actually quite autobiographical. Warriors was written, in the main, in a hotel room in Jersey. My girlfriend had just left me, I'd been evicted from the house I was living in and I felt pretty much alone in more ways than one. Despite its surface gloss of futurism it was really very inward looking. To me the image was meant to represent someone fighting for survival as much as anything". In a career that spans over forty years, the music evolves and the themes change. But fans remain fascinated by Numan for the very fact that he's so uncompromising. Gary recently released his twenty-first album "Intruder" in May 2021.
Olsen, Angel [Aisles (EP)]

September 24 street date (for vinyl) / October 8 (for cassette). EP including covers of songs originally by Billy Idol, Laura Branigan, Men Without Hats, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, and Alphaville. "I wanted to record 80's songs that I'd overheard walking the aisles at the grocery store, and I needed to laugh and have fun and be a little less serious about the recording process in general. I thought about completely changing some of the songs and turning them inside out. I'd heard "Gloria" by Laura Branigan for the first time at a family Christmas gathering and I was amazed at all the aunts who got up to dance. I imagined them all dancing and laughing in slow motion, and that's when I got the idea to slow the entire song down and try it out n this way. I felt that "Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats could be reinterpreted to be about this time of quarantine and the fear of being around anyone or having too much fun. It made me wonder, is it safe to laugh or dance or be free of it all for just a moment? I know it's not really in my history to do something unintentional or just for the hell of it but my connection to these songs is pretty straightforward, I just wanted to have a little fun and be a little more spontaneous, and I think I needed to remember that I could!" - Angel Olsen.
Pixies [Trompe Le Monde (green/30th Anniversary edition)]

September 24 street date. For its 30th anniversary, Pixies 1991 album, "Trompe Le Monde", is being reissued on limited marbled green vinyl. "Trompe Le Monde" bookended a golden run of landmark records - a mini-album followed by four albums, released in quick succession - that cemented Pixies as one of the best for a generation. "Trompe Le Monde" showed the band still restless to push their sound forward. Recorded between Burbank, Paris, and London, with producer Gil Norton again at the controls, their fourth album is arguably their most playful, with Black Francis's lyrics on UFOs and conspiracy theories keeping things weird while power pop creeps in to amplify the space rock established on predecessor "Bossanova". Featuring singles "Planet of Sound," "Alec Eiffel," "Letter to Memphis," and a flawless cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain's "Head On," "Trompe Le Monde" goes full throttle with 15 tracks coming in a quickfire 40-minute salvo. Receiving critical praise at the time and being supported by a huge tour that included playing stadiums with U2, it also proved to be the end of act one for the band, with them taking over a decade before returning to the stage together.
Public Service Broadcasting [Bright Magic (black)]

September 24 street date. London-based trio Public Service Broadcasting have created their own unique brand of art rock (call it History Rock) that dives deep into a historical subjects and creates a compelling body of work around the chosen theme. "Bright Magic" is named after a collection of short stories by Alfred Döblin. The album is primarily about Berlin as a magnet for creative people and creativity and the city as a canvas or a prism for refracting ideas and spreading them in new and interesting ways. As with all PSB releases there has been thorough research into the subject and a meticulous level of detail. The album was written and recorded entirely at Hansa Studios in Berlin and the artists resided there for the 6 month duration. Hansa is a world-renowned facility responsible for classic albums by the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Depeche Mode. The artwork was designed by Berlin artist Torsten Posselt, who has a long relationship with the Erased Tapes label, and has designed art for the likes of Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds, Kiasmos, and Rival Consoles among others.
Quicksand [Distant Populations]

September 24 street date. "Distant Populations", just the fourth full-length album of Quicksand's career, comes as a comparatively swift follow-up to "Interiors" - which itself came a full 22 years after its predecessor, 1995's "Manic Compression". Critically lauded and deemed very much worth the wait, "Interiors" succeeded in reestablishing the band as the powerful and contemporary entity they had always been. "Distant Populations" has a punchier, more up-tempo sound than its predecessor; its 11 songs are concise, carved sonic jewels boasting not a single wasted note; and its raw power, its gripping lyricism, leaps out from the very first listening. It is a striking step up for the band. Following the release of "Interiors", the band successfully toured around the world and in the process fully re-established their chemistry together. Looking forward to making the next album, the three of them had methodically recorded various soundchecks, improvisations, and show rehearsals, and compiled the results. "Eventually, when it came time to make a record", guitarist Walter Schreifels says, "we would just edit down to the ones that were most exciting to us all, and then refocus on them and see if we could recapture the magic from it".
Radiohead [Kid A Mnesia (3LP)]

November 5 street date. Radiohead announces "KID A MNESIA", a multiple format triple-album release marking the 21st anniversary of "Kid A" and "Amnesiac". "KID A MNESIA" collects Radiohead's fourth and fifth albums alongside the debut of a newly compiled third disc titled "Kid Amnesiae". Exclusive to this release, "Kid Amnesiae" is comprised of unearthed material culled from the "Kid A"/"Amnesiac" sessions. Along with alternate versions and elements of "Kid A" and "Amnesiac" album tracks and B-Sides, "Kid Amnesiae" features the never-before-heard "If You Say the Word" and a previously unreleased studio recording of "Follow Me Around".
Shad [TAO (blue vinyl)]

October 1 street date. Over the course of five records to date, JUNO Award-winning Toronto rapper Shad has used an array of old-school tools to tackle modern problems, addressing the indignities and absurdities of our world through a shapeshfiting melange of boom-bap breaks, dusty soul samples, jazzy improvisation, and 10 dollar words rolled into thousand-dollar rhymes. But after weaving his myriad musical and philosophical interests into a narrative socio-political song cycle - 2018's "A Short Story About a War" - Shad began building his sixth record, "TAO", from a much simpler concept: an image of a circle. Though, in true Shad fashion, he saw something much more profound within its basic round boundaries. On a track-by-track basis, "TAO" examines the many different fragments that make up who we are, forsaking the explicit narrative connectivity of "A Short Story About a War" for a more implicit thematic framework. And where its predecessor's intense subject matter naturally channeled a more intense, even aggressive spirit, the looser structure of "TAO" allows Shad to return to his "natural strike zone" of more playful, block-rocking bops - the sort of tracks that might make you smile and snicker even as they unpack such thorny topics as race, capitalism, and technological dependency.
Silverfish [Fat Axl (red splatter/remastered)]

September 24 street date. Beggars Arkive release a limited edition red splattered vinyl reissue of Silverfish's first full-length album, "Fat Axl", originally released in 1990 by Beggars label Wiiija. Recorded in Sheffield by Steve Albini in just two days, the album's nine songs are unrestrained and uncommercial. It's been remastered yet still retains the raw "lurch" appeal of the mighty Silverfish. Led by powerhouse vocalist Lesley Rankine (a pioneering, outspoken feminist who popularized the slogan "Hips, Tits, Lips, Power"), Silverfish formed in 1988 and were key to the Camden "lurch" scene; grunge before it was "grunge". Not long after their formation, Silverfish gathered a huge following due to their unique sound, which had nods to AC/DC, Dolly Parton, Russ Meyer, and the Birthday Party. Their uncompromising sound was in stark contrast to the gentler more commercial sound of other UK bands. Silverfish's sound owed more to metal, hardcore punk and the industrial sounds of Ministry.
Sofa [Source Crossfire (2LP-180g)]

September 17 street date. A searing, brooding collection documenting the recorded output of one of Montreal's most shadowy, notorious, captivating underground art-rock ensembles of the mid-90s (and the first band to be released on Constellation). In the words of one music writer of the era: "like Slint and Big Black meeting for a Joy Division reunion". Charting the quartet's febrile evolution through the sonic palettes of North American post-hardcore and slowcore admixed with early UK post-punk, goth and dark lounge, "Source Crossfire" rounds up Sofa's 1997 album "Grey" (originally released on CD only) along with selections from two prior self-released cassettes. Record #1 reimagines "Grey", newly sequenced to create distinct loud/fast and soft/slow vinyl sides. Record #2 mirrors this, with four tracks of intense pitch-black material on Side One and three early examples of Sofa's sombre balladry on Side Two, culled from the band's 1995 cassette material. Pressed at Optimal Germany with gatefold jacket, printed inners, and two 12"x24" art posters featuring the photography of acclaimed visual artist (and Sofa vocalist) Brad Todd.
Stevens, Sufjan & Angelo De Augustine [A Beginner's Mind (black)]

September 24 street date. It's been said that writing about music is like dancing about architecture (impossible and absurd). But what about singing about movies? Sufjan Stevens and Angelo De Augustine have paired up for a collaborative project that does just that. "A Beginner's Mind" is their debut album that contains 14 songs (loosely) based on (mostly) popular films. The source material is highbrow, lowbrow, and everything in between. The music is folksy, sweet, sincere and harmonically effervescent - Simon & Garfunkel with New Age flourishes. This album runs the gamut and has fun with it, even while its songwriters remain fully rooted in the melancholy folk idioms they are known for. By transforming old films into vital new songs, Stevens and De Augustine ask us to consider ourselves from a previously unconsidered vantage point - a new way of seeing and hearing - an exercise that's as necessary and relevant now as it's ever been.
Thrice [Horizons/East]

October 8 street date. To emerge from a global pandemic with a renewed sense of situational awareness, hard won insight, and a new album is the kind of move we've come to expect from Thrice over the last twenty years. With "Horizons/East", Dustin Kensrue and his bandmates address, with candor and courage, the fragile and awkward arrangements that pass for civilization, while inviting us to dwell more knowingly within our own lives. Without surrendering any of the energy and hard edge of their previous albums, they've given us a profoundly meditative work which serves as a musical summons to everyday attentiveness. Think Flying Lotus giving way to Elbow and setting the listener down in a new dimension. A self-recorded effort, "Horizons/East" conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination, and possibility.
