Chuck Prophet – The Land That Time Forgot

Release date: 21 August

Chuck Prophet - The Land That Time Forgot
  • Chuck Prophet, San Francisco’s saviour-songwriter, has returned with his new album, The Land That Time Forgot. Varying from the rich heartland rock of songs like ‘Best Shirt On’ to the building drum machine of ‘Marathon’ and all the way back to stripped back words and guitar of ‘Nixonland’ and ‘Get Off the Stage’, Prophet’s work defies classification. Chuck Prophet is a rock and roll star in a country that has forgotten that it needs rock and roll stars. America turns its popular musicians into celebrities (as if that’s what we need more of). Meanwhile, the true grit, write it like you live it and live it ‘til it kills you musical artist exists in obscurity, kicking ass and taking names in small clubs every night while sweating blood over making records. Thankfully, we live in the same timeline as Chuck Prophet.

Metallica – S&M2

Release date: 28 August

Metallica - S&M2
  • The S&M2 concerts by Metallica with San Francisco Symphony in September 2019 were historic on multiple levels, serving as the grand opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center, reuniting the band and orchestra for the first time since the 1999 performances captured on the Grammy-winning S&M album, and featuring the first-ever symphonic renditions of songs written and released since those original S&M shows. The sold-out shows were rapturously received by the 40,000 fans who travelled from nearly 70 countries.

The concert film has been freshly edited by Joe Hutching (Through The Never) and both the audio and visuals have been taken to the next level from the October 2019 theatrical version that played in over 3,700 cinemas worldwide.

Bright Eyes – Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was

Release date: 21 August

Bright Eyes - Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was
  • A lone pair of footsteps meanders down a street in Omaha, into the neighbourhood bar and then into a near-imperceptible tangle of conversations – about wars, sleepless nights – a surrealist din pushing against the sound of ragtime. Then, as the background quiets, a line rings out clearly: “I think about how much people need – what they need right now is to feel like there’s something to look forward to. We have to hold on. We have to hold on.” Thus we enter the fitting, cacophonic introduction to Bright Eyes’ tenth studio album and first release since 2011. Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was is an enormous record caught in the profound in-between of grief and clarity – one arm wrestling its demons, the other gripping the hand of love, in spite of it.
  • The end of Bright Eyes’ unofficial hiatus came naturally. Conor Oberst pitched the idea of getting the band back together during a 2017 Christmas party at Bright Eyes bandmate Nathaniel Walcott’s Los Angeles home. The two huddled in the bathroom and called Mike Mogis, who was Christmas shopping at an Omaha mall. Mogis immediately said yes. There was no specific catalyst for the trio, aside from finding comfort amidst a decade of brutal change. Sure, ‘Why now?’ is the question, but for a project whose friendship is at the core, it was simply: ‘Why not?’
  • Note: the LP is available on indies-only transparent red/transparent blue vinyl.

Blues Pills – Holy Moly

Release date: 21 August

Blues Pills - Holy Moly
  • Under the layers of heavy psychedelic blues-rock and Elin Larsson’s soulful and powerful voice, the core of Blues Pills has always been the restless search for change. Change in the human mind and the musical influences they embraced themselves with, from blackened soul to the trippy rides through ’60s garage rock music and the devil’s blues. During their break, Blues Pills has been through some kind of reincarnation, that has led to the new self-produced and recorded album Holy Moly!, mixed by the award-winning Andrew Scheps.
  • Note: the LP is available on red and gold splatter vinyl.

Mercury Rev – All Is Dream

Release date: 28 August

Mercury Rev - All Is Dream
  • All Is Dream, the sequel to Deserter’s Songs, was originally released on V2 in 2001 and boasted a more expansive, cinematic production than its predecessor (again courtesy of ex-member Dave Fridmann, by this time arguably the most in-demand producer in alternative US rock). The record was warmly received by critics and Mercury Rev’s fans alike, enjoying higher chart positions than its predecessor (No. 11 UK, No. 17 US, Top 40 in Australia and in various European countries, etc.). With all previous vinyl editions of All Is Dream now hard to find, this new version not only satisfies demand for one of the band’s most important records but adds a bonus disc featuring various B-sides and out-takes which were unveiled on last year’s 4-CD book set. Limited to 1000 copies only.

Yello – Point

Release date: 28 August

Yello - Point
  • Undeniably unique and inspirational to generations of DJs and producers, Swiss electronic pioneers Yello return with their 14th studio album, Point. Musically, the album takes the classic Yello sound of records like Stella, One Second and Flag and twists it into something ultra-modern. It’s part spy film, part Dali-painting, part strobe lit dance floor, part 4D car chase and part deep space torch song. It’s Yello, absolutely on point.

IDLES – Ultra Mono

Release date: 25 September

IDLES - Ultra Mono
  • Following Brutalism (2017) and Joy as an Act of Resistance (2018), two releases that garnered global critical acclaim, IDLES return with their highly anticipated third album, Ultra Mono. Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record (including production contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is Ultra Mono.
  • Tracklist: / 1. War / 2. Grounds / 3. Mr. Motivator / 4. Anxiety / 5. Kill Them With Kindness / 6. Model Village / 7. Ne Touche Pas Moi / 8. Carcinogenic / 9. Reigns / 10. The Lover / 11. A Hymn / 12. Danke

Bill Callahan – Gold Record

Release date: 4 September

Bill Callahan - Gold Record
  • For his first record in … uh, well, just a little over a year(!), Bill Callahan brings us his first Gold Record. They can’t all be gold, and they’re not all six years apart either – all good! You could probably call the album ‘Gold Records’, too: all the songs have a standalone feel, like singles, meant for you to have a deep encounter with all of a sudden, from the start of the song to the finish. And what do you got when you have a record full of singles – and let’s face it, hit singles, at that? That’s a Gold Record for you.

Cat Stevens / Yusuf - Tea For The Tillerman 2
  • Like it was destiny waiting to happen, Tea For The Tillerman² feels like the timing of its message has arrived again.” – Yusuf / Cat Stevens
  • 50 years on from the release of Tea For The Tillerman, the 1970 multi-platinum selling, era-defining album that made him a superstar, this new set sees Yusuf recast the same eleven songs for a new age with dramatic results. Half a century and an entire universe of experiences after they were originally laid down on tape, Tea For The Tillerman² is a beautiful reunion between the artist and the songs that helped define the melodious ’70s. Since its release half a decade ago, the impact of Tillerman and its suite of songs – including ‘Father And Son’, ‘Wild World’ and ‘On The Road To Find Out’ – have subtly intertwined with the fabric of popular culture.
  • At this most volatile and uncertain time, such values are entirely deserving of representation and with Tea For The Tillerman², a whole new generation will discover this album all over again.

Emily Barker – A Dark Murmuration Of Words

Release date: 4 September

Emily Barker - A Dark Murmuration Of Words
  • On A Dark Murmuration Of Words, Emily Barker contends with a modern era built on racial and gender inequality, poverty and slavery, environmental exploitation and the climate crisis, finding them all connected by the dark shadow of patriarchy, pursuits of power, and the suppression of history. “Finding meaning becomes challenging with the deafening clamour of social media in this age of fake news,” she says, “but it’s important to try discerning the patterns, learning to pay attention to things closer to home as well as to overwhelming global issues.” Referencing Emily Dickinson’s assertion that “If you take care of the small things, the big things take care of themselves,” Barker draws connections between the familial, the local, and the global.

This Is The Kit – Off Off On

Release date: 23 October

This Is The Kit - Off Off On
  • Since their 2008 debut album Krülle Bol, This Is The Kit (lead by Kate Stables) have unpicked emotional knots and woven remarkable stories. Even by her high standards, however, Off Off On is a beautifully clear distillation of Stables’ song-writing gifts.
  • By the end of 2018, the band had finished touring their last album, the talismanic Moonshine Freeze – leading to Kate’s Ivor Novello nomination, but when it came to Stables’ natural impulse to start the next record, her efforts were diverted by an invitation to join The National on the road for multiple tours and TV appearances – a continuation of the role she took on their album I Am Easy To Find. “It was so brilliant when I was writing to be away from my songs and the responsibility of being in charge of a band or a project – I think it really helped my writing and my getting through whatever I needed to get through.
  • Richly illuminating and acutely sensitive to the pulses and currents of life, Off Off On shows This Is The Kit overflowing with ideas. In difficult times, it’s a record that feels like a lifeline, moving against the tide, standing against the storm. Keep going.
  • Note: the LP is available on red vinyl, exclusive to indie shops.

Steven Wilson – The Future Bites

Release date: 29 January

Steven Wilson - The Future Bites
  • The Future Bites is an exploration of how the human brain has evolved in the internet era. Steven Wilson’s phenomenal sixth solo album is an online portal to a world of high-concept design, custom-built for the ultra-modern consumer. Where 2017’s To The Bone confronted the emerging global issues of post truth and fake news, The Future Bites places the listener in a world of 21st-century addictions. From out-of-control retail therapy, manipulative social media and the loss of individuality, The Future Bites is less a bleak vision of an approaching dystopia than a curious reading of the here and now.
  • Note: The LP is available on indies-only coloured vinyl.

Pre-sale offer CD £11.99 / LP £25.99
