Fleet Foxes - A Very Lonely Solstice [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Clear 2LP] - Robin Pecknold brings light to the bleakest of winters with Fleet Foxes' 'A Very Lonely Solstice,' a 13-track career spanning collection recorded in December 2020, at Brooklyn, NY's St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church. The recording was originally broadcasted as a live-stream event on the winter solstice of 2020, just days after New York declared a state of emergency tightening restrictions again in response to increasing COVID-19 cases. Selections cover all four of the band's studio albums, including their 2008 self-titled debut album ("Tiger Mountain Peasant Song") to 2011's Helplessness Blues ("Blue Spotted Tail") and 2017's Crack-Up ("If You Need To, Keep Time On Me"), all the way to their latest release, Shore.
Guided By Voices - Tremblers And Goggles By Rank - Their 36th album, the 13th with their current lineup and their 2nd of 2022, Tremblers And Goggles By Rank is set to continue the fantastic run of form that GBV has been on for the last few years. WIth the onset of this newest incarnation in 2017, this run of 13 albums has been as good and prolific as any this band has ever had. Those may be fightin’ words to some folks, but it’s something I stand by 100%.
Roxy Music - Avalon (Half Speed Mastered) - Avalon is the final studio album from Roxy Music. Released in 1982, it offered a smoother, more adult-oriented sound, giving us the now iconic singles, "More Than This," and "Avalon." This vinyl reissue is mastered at half-speed and cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. It also features revised artwork with a gloss laminated finish.
