    Easy Star

    The brand new studio album from one of the biggest reggae bands in the world. In The Moment finds Rebelution ruminating on time, living in the present and making your future better. The grammy-nominated band's first full length studio album since 2018's Free Rein, ITM brings 15 new tracks with guest appearances by Busy Signal, Kabaka Pyramid, Durand Jones and Keznamdi.

    Kartel

    Mammoth WVH is the debut, self-titled album of Mammoth WVH – the band created by Wolfgang Van Halen. In addition to writing and singing every song, remarkably Wolfgang plays every instrument. “The name Mammoth is really special to me.” says Wolf. “Not only was it the name of Van Halen before it became Van Halen, but my father was also the lead singer. Ever since my dad told me this, I always thought that when I grew up, I’d call my own band Mammoth, because I loved the name so much.”

    Epitaph

    Big Mess marks Elfman’s first solo collection in more than thirty years, but it’s no return to form. Clocking in at 18 tracks, the sprawling, ambitious double album finds the Grammy and Emmy Award-winning composer breaking bold new ground as both a writer and a performer, drawing on a dystopian palette of distorted electric guitars, industrial synthesizers and orchestra in an effort to exorcise the demons brought about by four years of creeping fascism and civil rot.

    BMG

    Garbage return with their seventh studio album No Gods No Masters, to be released 11th June 2021. “This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content: the seven virtues, the seven sorrows, and the seven deadly sins. It was our way of trying to make sense of the craziness of the world and the astounding chaos we found ourselves in.” -Shirley Manson

    Lightning Rod Records

    The title is more of an attitude than anything else, answering the question what if the four boys were sitting on a porch together and someone begins to sing a favorite old Gospel song or a country and Western standard, and everyone else just joined in? That is what happened at RCA Studio A, but, under producer Dave Cobb’s leadership, it turned into so much more. Dave and co. kept coming to the table with terrific creative ideas to enhance the Front Porch experience.

    Dine Alone

    The album was written and recorded during the pandemic, and though COVID-19 restrictions didn't allow Ward (At The Drive-In, Sparta) to record the album in person with other musicians, it does feature a very notable rhythm section: bassist Ben Kenney of Incubus (and briefly of The Roots) and drummer Tucker Rule of Thursday. "My friends did this for the pure love of making music with a friend," Ward said of Ben and Tucker.

    Nick Cave & Warren Ellis - Carnage

    Nick Cave & Warren Ellis - Carnage - Goliath Ent
    Written, recorded, and completed during lockdown, CARNAGE is the first studio album from Nick Cave & Warren Ellis outside of the Bad Seeds and their many soundtrack collaborations. The eight song project - developed amidst the downtime of a long, anxious, global emergency - showcases Cave & Ellis’ typical sonic and lyrical adventurism and stands as a quintessential record for these uncertain times. CARNAGE is shot through with moments of distilled beauty and resonating with an almost defiant sense of hope. In Cave's own words, it is "a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe."

    Rosie Tucker - Sucker Supreme

    Rosie Tucker - Sucker Supreme - Epitaph
    Sucker Supreme is the third album from Rosie Tucker, and first for Epitaph Records. It is a coming of age album that aches with self-discovery, self-definition, and self-redefinition. Sucker Supreme is also just the right follow-up to where their last album, 2019’s Never Not Never Not Never Not, left off: still playfully observed, still sneakily political, still indebted to folk singers of the past – but also much, much bigger, brighter, louder and noisier than anything Tucker has dared before. It delivers mightily on an ambitious M.O.: to be relentlessly catchy and muscular and noisy but also beautiful; be achingly sad and searching, but never too far away from funny, either; and to spotlight Tucker’s empathetic, yearning vocals on top of it all. It takes a unique group of people to make an album that leaps out of the speakers at you like this one. Sucker Supreme is the first record made by Tucker’s current touring band: drummer Jessy Reed, guitarist Jess Kallen, and bassist Wolfy, who also occupied the producer’s chair. It’s a group of people as eager to share their long-dead folk music heroes as they are to pay homage to their still-kicking pop-punk heartthrobs.

    Styx - Crash Of The Crown

    Styx - Crash Of The Crown - UMe
    A new era of hope, survival, and prosperity comes calling on Styx's Magnum Opus, Crash Of The Crown, the band's first studio album since 2017's The Mission. Though the 15-track album takes a hard look at some inherently dark subjects, the prevalent light at the end of the tunnel eventually becomes each song's focal point - a persistent fervor to keep moving forward and achieve the greater good. Featuring "Crash of the Crown," "Reveries" & more, available on black vinyl.

    Lightman Jarvis Ecstatic Band - Banned

    Lightman Jarvis Ecstatic Band - Banned - Anti
    Yves Jarvis and Romy Lightman are a pair of idiosyncratic and restlessly creative artists. In the past decade, Jarvis’s ever-expanding swatch have earned international acclaim, while Lightman’s twin-sister-led band Tasseomancy has transfixed listeners since the late 2000s. The Lightman Jarvis Ecstatic Band marks the duo’s first collaboration, slingshotting both musicians out of their comfort zones into spellbinding territories of lysergic folk and impressionistic rock. Banned was recorded in the tranquil environment of the Tree Museum, an outdoor art gallery in rural Ontario, Canada, hosting residencies for contemporary sculptors over the past 20 years. The pair credit its 200 acres of natural spaces intermingling with human-made creations as the fuel for their unfettered process. Recorded over two weeks in a free-flowing stream of improvisation, the album finds Lightman on synthesizer with Jarvis on drums and guitar, as their voices weave together into an electrified pastoral tapestry.

    Vincent Neil Emerson - Vincent Neil Emerson

    Vincent Neil Emerson - Vincent Neil Emerson - La Honda Records
    Vincent Neil Emerson is a torchbearer of the Texas songwriter tradition. He channels the straightforward truth-telling and resonance of his songwriting heroes in Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle into something fresh and distinctly his own. Where his 2019 debut Fried Chicken and Evil Women proved that he is one of the most reverent students of country and Western musical traditions, his follow-up LP, the masterful Rodney Crowell-produced Vincent Neil Emerson, which is out June 25 via La Honda Records/Thirty Tigers, is a brave step forward that solidifies his place as one of music's most compelling and emotionally clarifying storytellers. His songs are cathartic and bluntly honest, never mincing words or dancing around uncomfortable truths.

    T. Hardy Morris - The Digital Age of Rome

    T. Hardy Morris - The Digital Age of Rome - New West Records
    Heading into the spring of 2020, T. Hardy Morris had 12 demos that he thought would make-up his next album, then, everything changed.  The world took a break and so his plans to record did as well. As we all watched and waited out the storms; viral and societal, we seemed to wake up scrolling through a whole new century, a time Morris began to refer to as The Digital Age of RomeHe scrapped the demos and began a collection of songs in quarantine where the unprecedented times and topics were unavoidable. He wanted to document the era sonically and lyrically in some way. “I wanted it to sound like how the world felt to me in the second half of 2020. Uncomfortable and chaotic, dystopian but still beautiful.”  The Digital Age of Rome was recorded in a deserted downtown Athens, Ga. With long-time collaborator / producer Adam Landry.
