• Construction Update

    Electric Fetus - Minneapolis

    Construction update: Our 4th Ave driveway is closed due to the road construction project. You may enter on Franklin Ave. The traffic heading westbound over the Franklin Ave bridge makes it difficult to exit onto Franklin so it’s best to exit through the alley south to 22nd St.

    We appreciate your patience and perseverance.

  • New Release Round-Up 07-13-18



    New Releases 13 July 2018

    Drake - Scorpion - Republic
    The 25-track fifth studio release for the Canadian hip-hop artist Drake features guest appearances from Jay-Z and Ty Dollar $ign as well as vocals from Michael Jackson and Static Major.

    Dirty Projectors - Lamp Lit Prose - Domino
    Lamp Lit Prose’ arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled ‘Dirty Projectors.’ Here David Longstreth’s band returns with a new album that is the yang to the yin of the 2017 effort. The songs signal a page turned for Longstreth: hope instead of heartbreak, a restorative balance. Guitars have returned to the Dirty Projectors’ world, intricate and gorgeous vocal harmony too. The album begins with “Right Now,” David singing, “there was silence in my heart, but now I’m striking up the band.” In addition to the core musicians and guests, LA string group the Calder Quartet, and The Brass Players of Los Angeles both appear on several songs. ‘Lamp Lit Prose’ is a recommitment to the sounds and ideals of Dirty Projectors, embracing the band’s trademarks while pushing forward the sonic envelope. Lamp Lit Prose will be the ninth release for Dirty Projectors and comes with collaborations from HAIM, Syd, Robin Pecknold, Rostam Batmanglij, Amber Mark, Empress Of and Dear Nora. Lamp Lit Prose was recorded at Ivo Shandor in Los Angeles.

    Deafheaven - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love - Epitaph
    Deafheaven was formed in 2010 by vocalist George Clarke and guitarist Kerry McCoy. They released their debut studio album Roads To Judah in 2011 . They added drummer Daniel Tracy to the group and released their breakthrough album Sunbather in 2013. After rounding out their line up with guitarist Shiv Mehra and bassist Stephen Clark—each subsequent live set felt like a religious experience for the bigger (and bigger) shows that followed. Their third album, and first for ANTI-, 2015’s New Bermuda, was heavier, sturdier, and more grounded in the dirt than Sunbather. They toured extensively to support New Bermuda playing tours and festivals with Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Danzig, and Gojira. Deafheaven’s new album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, finds them working with old friends again. The Jack Shirley-produced and Nick Steinhardt-art directed (of Touché Amoré) collection gets its title from Graham Greene’s novel The End of the Affair, referencing a moment when someone is looking for love, in all of its imperfection and simple beauty. This sentiment is carried throughout the hazy, yearning romanticism of the record with song titles and words as sumptuous as the sounds around them. Clarke describes the composition of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love beginning with “small seeds of healing, repair, and rebirth,” and like each subsequent Deafheaven album, this record is, in fact, a revelation. Defeat has inspired some of our best art. If you survive something terrible, you surface on the other side, walk toward the light, and come back to life. If you’re an artist, this kind of new self-knowledge can lead to creating something universal and remembered, something that can live longer than you do. While Deafheaven have managed to cross over this road in the past, they’ve nailed the feeling wholly with Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, a feeling that comes with experience and wisdom. Yes, everybody deals with hurt, everybody’s been the cause of their own implosions, and everybody has the capacity to overcome and love again. Deafheaven have found a way to externalize all of this, and in making their most complete record to date, they turn it into a balm and a cathartic exorcism.

    Between The Buried And Me - Automata II - Sumerian Records
    This is PART TWO of Between The Buried And Me’s two-part eighth album and introductory offering for Sumerian Records, Automata. The North Carolina quintet—Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. [lead vocals, keyboards], Paul Waggoner [lead and rhythm guitar, backing and lead vocals], Dustie Waring [rhythm and lead guitar], Blake Richardson [drums], and Dan Briggs [bass, keyboards]—explore these themes by personally smashing boundaries once again. Automata marks the band’s first proper double LP-spanning concept. They continue to expand their ever-evolving style, upholding a tradition of progression in the process.

     

    AHI - In Our Time

    AHI - In Our TimeAHI - In Our TimeAHI - In Our Time - Thirty Tigers
    Leading with his heart as much as with his head, AHI is an emotional yet discerning lyricist who would rather demonstrate love than use the word itself. He allows his light to shine inward but only to a degree, admitting to some autobiography on In Our Time but as glimpsed through an imaginative lens. While his music possesses a quality of timelessness, the sounds here reveal a broad spectrum of influence and also toe the line between retro and revelatory. None of that is by accident: the album, like its 2016 predecessor, We Made It Through the Wreckage, was recorded in Nashville -- a place AHI finds attractive for its sound and skilled studio hands rather than its glitzy polish -- and this time on analog-to-tape with flourishes of digital technology.

    The Carters - Everything Is Love - Roc Nation
    The debut full-length collaborative album for Beyonce and Jay-Z was a surprise release and features guest appearances from Migos, Offset, Quavo, Rory from Stone Love, and Ty Dolla $ign.

    The Nude Party - The Nude Party - New West Records
    The Nude Party – one of 2018’s most groovy and dynamic rock records is produced by Oakley Munson of The Black Lips and recorded in Woodstock, NY at Dreamland Recording Studios, the circa-1896 former St. John’s Church. The self-titled album finds that formidable music machine cranked all the way to cosmic. Maybe it’s the electric waters of Lake Norman, NC where the band spent a primordial summer, or the upstate New York vibes that have beckoned American spiritualists and storytellers for a dozen generations, but something gives these cats a glow. At very least the numerology scans. Even when heartbreak crashes the party, like on the hilarious “Records,” the buoyancy of the band’s demeanor negates the inevitable bummer. From the self-aware irreverence of “Chevrolet Van” to the apocalyptic resignation of “War Is Coming,” The Nude Party surfs heavy wavelengths with elegance and grace.

    Years & Years - Palo Santo - Interscope Records
    A band intuitively connected to great, homespun British pop, “Palo Santo” announces Years & Years’ ascension to the world stage, through an escapist futuristic fantasia created by Olly Alexander. A once-in-a-generation frontman who understands more than most his responsibility as a pop star, his personal leap forward in scope and ambition is reflected in the album’s colorful mix of collaborators, which range from Greg Kurstin, Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter to Steve Mac and Sarah Hudson.

    Erasure - World Be Live - Mute U.S.
    Erasure are delighted to announce a brand new live album, World Be Live, via Mute. Taken from their recent sold out European tour in support of 2017’s World Be Gone, the album was recorded across the band’s recent London shows at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith and completes the trilogy of album releases around the World Be Gone project which started with 2017’s World be Gone album and continued with the orchestral re-imagining of those songs, World Beyond, in March of this year. Featuring twenty-four classic tracks from throughout their career (including an exclusive cover of Blondie’s 1981 classic “Atomic”), World Be Live is released as 2CD, 3LP, and digitally via Mute.
