Black Midi - Hellfire - Hellfire, their third album and second in two years sees the London three piece at their most direct. "Welcome To Hell" tells the story of a debauched soldier's excess and military discharge, soundtracked by funky guitar sections, driving horns and a progressively snarling vocal. The album was written in London 2021 and produced by Marta Salogni and black midi, with additional production from Max Goulding. Honestly, you never quite know what you’re going to get with Black Midi, as they seem to have an unlimited palette to paint from, so this should be quite an adventure.

 

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong - Ella & Louis (Verve Acoustic Sounds Series) - After appearing together at an all-star concert the night before, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong went into an L.A. studio to record this gem of an album. Despite having little to no time for rehearsals, the sublime artistic mastery of Ella and Louis and the instant chemistry they achieved resulted in one of the few truly indispensable recordings in all of jazz. Verve's Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging. These Verve Acoustic Series releases have all sounded fantastic and there’s no doubt this will be a must have version.

 

 

Interpol - The Other Side of Make-Believe - Interpol return with The Other Side of Make Believe, their first album in four years. Rather than be sent scrambling like so many other musicians on tour or promoting new music, when lockdown clamped in March 2020, Interpol quickly got into a productive mood. Coming from a group whose early work was characterized by Polish knife-wielders and incarcerated serial killers, you might expect Interpol's pandemic record to be an emotional tar pit - doubly so, given the presence of towering producer-engineer duo Flood and Moulder on the boards. But Banks felt the call to push in a "counterbalancing" direction, with paeans to mental resilience and the quiet power of going easy.

 

Lizzo - Special [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Grape LP] - Lizzo returns to follow up 2019’s smash album Cuz I Love You, with her new LP, Special. A lot has happened in the last 3 years, but Lizzo’s fame has grown bigger and bigger, with her becoming one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. She’s already announced a tour starting this Fall that should be as massive a hit as her new album. This one will be super hot and one to grab ASAP.



Growing Up [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Clear w/ Blue-Pink Splatter LP] - The Linda Lindas first played together as members of a pickup new wave cover band of kids assembled by Kristin Kontrol (Dum Dum Girls) for Girlschool LA in 2018 and then formed their own garage punk group just for fun. Sisters Mila de la Garza (drummer, now 11) and Lucia de la Garza (guitar, 14), cousin Eloise Wong (bass, 13), and family friend Bela Salazar (guitar, 17) developed their chops as regulars at all-ages matinees in Chinatown, where they played with original L.A. punks like The Dils, Phranc, and Alley Cats; went on to open for riot grrrl legends Bikini Kill and architect Alice Bag as well as DIY heavyweights Best Coast and Bleached; and were eventually featured in Amy Poehler's movie Moxie.When the pandemic put a pause on shows, The Linda Lindas went on to self-release a four-song EP, make their own videos and grow a following beyond Los Angeles. But they never expected or could have even dreamed that their performance of "Racist, Sexist Boy" for the Los Angeles Public Library in May 2021 would take them from punk shows to TV shows. A month later, when the school year ended and summer began, The Linda Lindas got to work on their first full-length LP. Having written a mountain of new material individually while sheltering in place and attending class virtually, the band was more than ready to enter the studio where Mila and Lucia's dad (and Eloise's uncle and Bela's "uncle") Carlos de la Garza oversaw recording and production.
