    THE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary Edition

    THE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary EditionTHE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary Edition - CapitolTHE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary Edition
    It was 50 years ago when The Beatles' John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music's most universally acclaimed album. The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo, sourced directly from the four-track masters at Abbey Road Studios in London, and guided by the original, Beatles-preferred mono mix produced by his father, George Martin. This expanded 2CD package features the new stereo album mix on the first CD and adds a second CD of 18 tracks, including previously unreleased alternate takes of each of the album's 13 songs, newly mixed in stereo and sequenced in the same order as the album. The second CD also includes a new stereo mix and a previously unreleased instrumental take of 'Penny Lane,' and the 2015 stereo mix and two previously unreleased alternate takes of 'Strawberry Fields Forever.' The Anniversary Editions are also available as a Single CD, 2LP and Super Deluxe Edition Box Set.

    JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The Street

    JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The StreetJUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The Street - New West RecordsJUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The Street
    Kids In The Street is the 7th and latest album from American roots troubadour, Justin Townes Earle. After marrying, moving to various corners of the country and continuous touring with both full band and solo, Earle made time to reflect on the past few years and find new clarity. With Kids In The Street, he made a conscious decision to work with a producer for the first time in his now decade-long career. Earle made the trip to Omaha, Nebraska to work with Mike Mogis (First Aid Kit, M.Ward, Connor Oberst) at ARC Studios. Together, they hand picked musicians to create a new sound and environment for the songs that speaks to Justin’s roots, musically and personally. This creative collaboration, paired with Justin’s longtime guitarist Paul Niehaus, has resulted in an album that takes a big step forward.

    LIL YACHTY - Teenage Emotions - Quality Control
    Teenage Emotions merges Lil Yachty's signature gleeful sing-rap and auto-tuned transmissions with hip hop bombast, pop and eighties cultural touchstones. The 19-year-old Atlanta native is proudly genre-defying, mining hip-hop, alternative, indie sounds as well as his hometown Atlanta trap DNA to solidify his mosaic approach. The album is a reflection of young lives right now, from happiness to social media-saturated heartbreak to the dance floor, caught in a sound that effortlessly, constantly bounces from rap to pop to something entirely its own. Personally the nineteen-year-old strives to promote positivity and good vibes. It caters to a teenager s everyday lifestyle-heartbreak, happiness, that vibe when you waking up in the morning getting dressed and you just wanna dance.

    THE CHARLATANS - Different Days - BMG Rights Management
    Different Days is the thirteenth studio album from The Charlatans. Self-produced at the band’s studio in Crewe the album features the core quartet of vocalist Tim Burgess, bassist Martin Blunt, guitarist Mark Collins and keyboard player Tony Rogers along with contributions from an enviable cast of friends from Paul Weller and Johnny Marr to crime writer Ian Rankin and writer/actress Sharon Horgan. A brilliant album. The Charlatans have never been more forward looking or relevant as now.

    GRATEFUL DEAD - Long Strange Trip - Rhino
    Motion Picture Soundtrack for Long Strange Trip. Long Strange Trip is an unprecedented four-hour documentary about the legendary band the Grateful Dead from executive producer Martin Scorsese (Silence, The Departed), and director Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, Happy Valley). Long Strange Trip probes the creative forces, subversive ambitions, and interpersonal dynamics that drove the Grateful Dead in their 30-year career. The first biographical film authorized and supported by the band, LST includes never-before-seen archival footage (of performances, backstage, and home movies) as well as new interviews with band members and cultural critics.

    SAINT ETIENNE - Home Counties

    SAINT ETIENNE - Home CountiesSAINT ETIENNE - Home Counties - PIAS AmericaSAINT ETIENNE - Home Counties
    Saint Etienne grew up in the Home Counties. Here are sixteen new songs they have written about a day in the life of this doughnut of shires that ring the capital, punctuated by bursts of BBC radio to remind you what time it is, and all connected by train journeys - main lines, branch lines, commutes, escapes. It begins with SOMETHING NEW, and a teenage girl creeping through the front door after staying out all night. It stops at WHYTELEAFE, and imagines what might have happened if David Bowie had remained David Jones of Bromley, stuck with a desk job. It summons up the Enfield Poltergeist on HEATHER, and the anarchy of Essex's Plotland settlers on SWEET ARCADIA. TRAIN DRIVERS IN EYELINER wonders what the railway network might be like if it was organized according to ASLEF's taste in music. The album was produced by Shawn Lee of Young Gun Silver Fox, with support from Augustus (Kero Kero Bonito), Carwyn Ellis (Colorama, Edwyn Collins), Robin Bennett (The Dreaming Spires), Richard X (Girls On Top / Black Melody) and long-time collaborator Gerard Johnson (Denim, Yes). It was recorded in central London. Sarah, Bob and Pete commuted to the studio every day for six weeks.

    New Releases May 19 2017

    WAVVES - You're Welcome - Ghost Ramp
    Via Ghostramp, Williams isn't just putting out Wavves' new record, he's signing other local garage bands, funding his tours, schooling DIY artists in how to create and distribute merchandise in a way that supports your career and provides future security where nobody else can. As for Warners, that cash advance helped pay for this store. The rest came from the money Wavves made off merch during 2016's Summer Is Forever II Tour with Best Coast and Cherry Glazerr. “I thought Ghostramp would be a hobby, doing 7-inches here and there. But now it's a legitimate business,” says Williams. “The thing is I'm not just interested in making music for Wavves. I'm too ADD. Being an entrepreneur, being hands-on isn’t just smart, it’s necessary. Your art is everything you do, every choice you make. I was able to build my own thing, own it and control it all 100%. If I want to do something now I don’t ask anyone. I just fucking do it – that's priceless.” Nathan Williams never went away, but now he's made sure he's here to stay far longer. And for that, girls and boys, You're Welcome.

    FAITH EVANS & THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G. - The King & I - Rhino
    The King & I is a duets album that will take listeners through a unique journey of Faith and Biggie's relationship. The album features un-released Biggie vocals and is packed with original productions by DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Stevie J, Salaam Remi, Chucky Thompson, Puff Daddy and more. The album also features guest artist Lil Cease, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch (founders of The L.O.X. hip hop group), 112, and a first time collaboration with legendary hip hop artist Lil Kim. The narrative of The King & I is compelling, compassionate, and offers a very personal glimpse into the love life of two of the biggest Hip Hop & R&B artists of all time.

    LINKIN PARK - One More Light - Warner Bros
    One More Light is a moment in time. It’s built on personal stories, sweat-stained and reeling from injuries—the product of six voices, each coming clean about their lives and struggles, as if it were the first time. We get an unobstructed view into what makes the band tick as people, fathers, husbands, musicians, and friends.

    PAPA ROACH - Crooked Teeth

    PAPA ROACH - Crooked TeethPAPA ROACH - Crooked Teeth - Eleven Seven MusicPAPA ROACH - Crooked Teeth
    The band wrote and recorded the Crooked Teeth album in North Hollywood, Calif., with the help of production team Nicholas “Ras” Furlong and Colin Brittain. Jason Evigan also lent his producing talents to a track on the album called “Born for Greatness.” “The first time we met up with RAS and Colin, they said that Infest was on constant rotation when they were growing up and they wanted to bring back some of that fire,” says Jacoby Shaddix. Adds Furlong, “The whole idea was to take the classic elements of Papa Roach that everyone loved and revamp them into a modern version of the sound through the creative process, and we ended up with a bold, courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach.”

    MATISYAHU - UndercurrentMATISYAHU - Undercurrent - Fallen Sparks Rec.MATISYAHU - Undercurrent
    Singer-songwriter Matisyahu has been on a journey inward for more than a decade. The journey has been private and public. The journey has at times been explicitly external, even while being driven by internal change. Now, nearly thirteen years after the release of his first studio record, Matisyahu and his band have done something unmatched in his past repertoire; they have crafted that journey into a musically thematic eight-song-movement.
