Ghost follows last year’s international chart-topping opus IMPERA as intended from the start with PHANTOMIME, a diverse and spellbinding sampling of the GRAMMY Award-winning band’s musical DNA. Featuring covers of classics by Television, Genesis, The Stranglers, Iron Maiden and Tina Turner, PHANTOMIME pays tribute to these unlikely bedfellow influences while stamping them all with Ghost’s undeniable sonic signature.
Little Songs is the highly anticipated new album from Canadian singer-songwriter, Colter Wall. On Little Songs, fans of Wall's will find the same hardscrabble voice they've loved over the years connecting the contemporary world to the values, hardships, and celebrations of rural life. The album is produced by Wall and Patrick Lyons, and features 8 new original songs, as well as two fan-favorite covers - Hoyt Axton's "Evangelina" and Ian Tyson's "The Coyote & The Cowboy." Little Songs is an upbeat, sometimes somber glimpse into the rural work and social life of the Canadian West, and, more so than with previous albums, opens emotional turns as mature and heartening as the resonant baritone voice writing and singing them.

Sometimes, Mitski says, it feels like life would be easier without hope, or a soul, or love. But when she closes her eyes and thinks about what's truly hers, what can't be repossessed or demolished, she sees love. "The best thing I ever did in my life was to love people, " Mitski says. "I wish I could leave behind all the love I have, after I die, so that I can shine all this goodness, all this good love that I've created onto other people." She hopes her newest album, The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We, will continue to shine that love long after she's gone. Listening to it, that's precisely how it feels: like a love that's haunting the land." This is my most American album, " Mitski says about her seventh record, and the music feels like a profound act of witnessing this country, in all of it's private sorrows and painful contradictions. In this album, which is sonically Mitski's most expansive, epic, and wise, the songs seem to be introducing wounds and then actively healing them. Here, love is time-traveling to bless our tender days, like the light from a distant star. The album is full of the ache of the grown-up, seemingly mundane heartbreaks and joys that are often unsung but feel enormous. It's a tiny epic. From the bottom of a glass, to a driveway slushy with memory and snow, to a freight train barreling through the Midwest, and all the way to the moon, it feels like everything, and everyone, is crying out, screaming in pain, arching towards love. Love is that inhospitable land, beckoning us and then rejecting us. To love this place - this earth, this America, this body - takes active work. It might be impossible. The best things are

Patient Number 9isOzzy Osbourne'sthirteenth solo studio album and a continuation from 2020's top 5 releaseOrdinary Man, once again produced byAndrew Watt. This 13-track project running nearly over an hour long has the most legendary guests ever on an Ozzy release. Three tracks alone – "Patient Number 9", "Degradation Rules", and "One Of Those Days" – feature Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, and Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) respectively, not to mention Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses), Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Zakk Wylde (Ozzy's longstanding guitarist from the late 80's) as well as the late Taylor Hawkins – on what was to be his final recorded performance. Ozzy again proves, through all trials and tribulations, that he stands as one of the only consistent rock and roll forces in music – to be specific, the only artist to have a Billboard top 10 album in across 50 years in each decade.
Sometimes, Forever – the immersive and compulsively replayable new Soccer Mommy full-length – cements Sophie Allison's status as one of the most gifted songwriters making rock music right now. The album finds Sophie broadening the borders of her aesthetic without abandoning the unsparing lyricism and addictive melodies that made earlier songs so easy to obsess over. To support her vision, Sophie enlisted producerDaniel Lopatin, whose recent credits include the Uncut Gems movie score and The Weeknd's Dawn FM.
Spanning the best part of a decade, in 2020 King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard released a two-volume demo collection recorded between 2011 and 2020. This Fuzz Club Bootleg brings both volumes into one as a double LP, offering a fascinating insight into the band’s creative process. As well as a selection of unreleased demos and instrumentals, here you’ll find early versions of songs which would go on to adorn the tracklists of ‘K.G.’, ‘Nonagon Infinity’, ‘Paper Mache Dream Balloon’, ‘Sketches of Brunswick East’, ‘Infest The Rats Nest’, ‘Fishing for Fishies, ‘Gumboot Soup’, ‘12 Bar Bruise’, ‘Oddments’, ‘Polygondwanaland’ and the ‘Willoughby’s Beach’ EP. The ‘Demos & Rarities’ Fuzz Club bootleg is remastered by Brett Orrison (The Black Angels, Jack White) exclusively for Fuzz Club. It arrives as a double LP on 180g coloured vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with artwork designed exclusively for the Fuzz Club Official Bootleg series.
Over 25 years ago, nine guys from Des Moines, Iowa, shattered the scope of what was possible in metal. Slipknot's music put blastbeats, massive breakdowns and brutal riffs alongside breakbeats and turntablism; punctuated hooky melodies with extreme vocals and percussive rap verses. On stage, bodies clad in numbered jumpsuits and horror film masks crashed into each other, eliciting mania from hungry crowds and drawing blood and breaking bones in the process. Everything Slipknot did was maximalist and monstrous, completely unhinged and meticulously thought out.
The metal juggernaut follows-up 2019'sWe Are No Your Kind(third consecutive Billboard 200 No. 1) with their Joe Barresi co-produced seventh albumThe End, So Farwhich will be their last with Roadrunner and comes introduced by lead tracks "The Chapeltown Rag" and "The Dying Song (Time to Sing)."
"It's really killer, man. It's darker than 'We Are Not Your Kind', but there's a ton of melody," Corey Taylor told SiriusXM's Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk. "I've been telling everybody that it's like a heavier version of 'Vol. 3[: (The Subliminal Verses)]'. It's got so many textures and layers. The heavy stuff has attack but the melodic stuff you can just sink your teeth in; there's a lot of great melodies and hooks. I'm really, really excited for people to hear it."
Mavericks. Pioneers. Unique. Immutable. Destined to be one of 2022's most hailed and talked-about releases, Immutable once again showcases Meshuggah's collective brilliance, including some of the most jaw-dropping ensemble performances they have ever executed. Shattering even the highest of expectations, the band's ninth album is simply their wildest and most esoteric sonic adventure yet. Recorded at Sweetspot Studios in Halmstad (Sweden), mixed by Rickard Bengtsson & Staffan Karlsson and mastered by multiple Grammy award winner Vlado Meller (Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down). Visionary artist Luminokaya once again created the stunning cover artwork. Immutable finds Meshuggah still operating on a higher level of metallic consciousness than just about everybody else!

On limited Translucent Purple Ripple vinyl. Here is Sweep It Into Space, the fifth new studio album cut by Dinosaur Jr.. during the 13th year of their rebirth. Originally scheduled for issue in mid 2020, this record's temporal trajectory was thwarted by the coming of the Plague. But it would take more than a mere Plague to tamp down the exquisite fury of this trio when they are fully dialed-in. And Sweep It Into Space is a masterpiece of zoned dialing. Recorded, as usual, at Amherst's Biquiteen, the sessions for Sweep It Into Space began in the late Autumn of 2019, following a West Coast/South East tour. The only extra musician used this time with Kurt Vile. Indeed, Sweep It Into Space is a very cool album. As is typical, Lou Barlow writes and sings two of the album's dozen tunes and Murph's pure-Flinstonian drumming drives the record like a go cart from Hell. Lou's songs here are as elegant as always. But there are very few moments where you wouldn't know you were hearing Dinosaur Jr. In blindfolded needle drop. They have a signature sound as sure as the Stooges or Sonic Youth or Discharge ever did. They continue to expand their personal universe with Sweep It Into Space, without ever losing their central core.
Meliora (Latin for better) is the highly anticipated third full-length offering from enigmatic Swedish occult heavy metal rockersGhost B.C. following the well received Opus Eponymous (2010) andInfestissumam (2013). Produced by Klas Åhlund(Teddybears) and mixed by Andy Wallace(Slayer, Nirvana, Guns N' Roses), the album features ten new tracks including lead single "Cirice" and marks the addition of new vocalist Papa Emeritus III (Papa Emeritus II's younger brother) while the identity-less Nameless Ghouls round out the line-up with new masks.
After re-launching his career in the late nineties with a string of singles on Fondle Em Records, leading up to the instant-classic Operation: Doomsday album, MF Doom relentlessly pushed forward, always innovating along the way, building what has become one of the most storied and revered careers in the world of Hip Hop.
One apex point along that journey took place circa 2003/2004 with DOOM releasing Viktor Vaughn Parts 1 & 2, Madvillainy with Madlib (a legend in his own right), King Geedorah's Take Me To Your Leader, and MM.Food all in that short and explosive timeframe. While all of those projects have been revered by fans and critics alike, MM.Food is the only album that officially exists as the proper follow-up to Operation: Doomsday. MM.Food finds DOOM digging deep into vocal soundbytes related, as well as fitting to his namesake and artistic vision, meticulously building a cohesive album narrative. Diligence in mind, his writing is as sharp, witty and often shocking as ever. Production-wise, DOOM utilizes a fine blend of familiar and obscure sample sources, complimentarily working together to both satisfy and intrigue. And, while MM.Food is mostly the work of a mad scientist in his secret lair, a sprinkling of super-villain team ups with Count Bass D, Madlib, PNS of The Molemen, Stahhr, and Mr. Fantastik, all add to the album's overall flavor. Even after all these years MM.Food remains a satisfying feast for both returning true believers, as well as herds of new fans who happily and eventually find their listening ears in the clutches of DOOM.

Produced by the band's own Claudio Sanchez and Zakk Cervini, Coheed and Cambria's ambitious new album, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind welcomes us back to "The Amory Wars" as the second installment of the five-part Vaxis arc about a couple on the run from tyrannical forces and their mysterious new addition. For the last 20 years, Coheed and Cambriahave continuously broken the mold of what a rock band can be, forging their own path and building a universe around their music unlike any other. Whether it is in the way their genre-spanning approach to songwriting has allowed them to bridge worlds without being contained to one, or the multifaceted story arc of their albums and comic book series which mark the longest running concept story in music, Coheed and Cambria have consistently shaped new standards, never conformed.
Things Are Great (INDIE EX) [Translucent Rust Vinyl] Band of Horses have announced their sixth studio album and their first record in more than five years, Things Are Great which will be released January 21, 2022 via BMG. Sonically the album is a return to their earlier work and the kind of raw ethos that lies at the heart of Band of Horses.
Voyager, the seventh LP fromCurrent Joys, rattles with the live-wire feeling that's thrummed through all ofNick Rattigan'sprevious releases: quavering, scream-itself-hoarse vocals and self-interrogation via song. But here, that bristling, sentimental rock ‘n' roll cacophony is overlaid with a soundtrack orchestra guiding it along. It's an odyssey, a grand-sounding journey of self-discovery spread across sixteen tracks. Part ekphrasis, part personal, it's Rattigan learning new ways to understand his own feelings and identity while inspired by the highly-stylized, striking storytelling of filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock, Lars Von Trier, Terrence Malick, Agnès Varda, and Andrei Tarkovsky.Voyageris unlike anythingCurrent Joyshas released before.
On his new LP, Rattigan eschews lo-fi home recordings for a full band and recording sessions at Stinson Beach Studios. As a vocalist/drummer in his other band Surf Curse, Rattigan had finally opened up to the possibility of working in a professional studio: "I'd just been very stubborn in wanting to do it all my own way, but I guess I've kind of opened up the creative process to more people at this point," Rattigan explains. " And I think it yields better results."
Frequently Rattigan uses film as a jumping off point for songwriting. "Big Star" was written on tour after watchingAdventureland, hoping to capture that specific endless youth energy of the soundtrack's Replacements and Big Star songs. "Amateur" is piano-heavy, a slow-build of tension, flitting with prettiness, while the creeping "Rebecca," named after the Hitchcock film before Rattigan had actually seen it, radiates a haunted, sinister presence; "Naked" feels almost unhinged, while "American Honey" is a longing, mellowed lament. The title track, "Voyager pt. 2," holds a sparse, near-funereal starkness, as well as the album's thesis: I'm a voyager in my mind, before the Spielberg-esque strings swell.
Eric Carr, who took up the rustic orange persona of “The Fox”, was a fan favorite and remained a member of KISS until his death. Carr’s only solo album, Rockology was completed after his death by fellow KISS member Bruce Kulick. This picture disc vinyl KISS Collector’s Edition, designed and mastered along with Loretta Carr (Eric’s sister) was imagined in the style of the original four KISS solo album, and falls in line with them, featuring Eric in his “Fox” makeup and a 12” x 24” poster in the style of the original releases. A must for fans/collectors of KISS.
