THE MARCH TRAIN CONTINUES ON! Let’s just get into it.
Kacey Musgraves - “Same Trailer, Different Park” Zoetrope Picture Disc
Here’s a pressing that might not even need an introduction based solely on first glimpses. County artist Kacey Musgraves is back with “Same Trailer, Different Park” for its 10th anniversary on a stunning zoetrope picture disc. If that word goes over your head, no problem, “zoetrope” is just a fancy way of saying that while the record spins, the printed pictures on the vinyl come to life and are animated right on top of your turntable. A modern country classic, you can pre-order Musgrave’s debut album in celebration of a whole decade-trip around the sun.
100 Gecs - “10,000 Gecs” [Indie Exclusive] White Vinyl
No hesitation and full-confidence, if you’ve never heard 100 Gecs, I can guarantee you’ve never heard a band like them before. At the front lines of their genre and scene, this duo defines the basis of hyperpop in its purest form: heavily altered vocals, an explosion of kaleidoscopy in electronic sounds, and a musical personification of what it feels like to have chugged four Monster energy drinks back-to-back. Songs like “stupid horse,” “money machine,” and “hand crushed by a mallet” are good places to start in your 100 Gecs journey, but their cult following surely already have had their trigger finger ready on the upcoming release of the brand new “10,000 Gecs.” You can still get it, too, on our site!
Frightened Rabbit - “Pedestrian Verse: 10th Anniversary” [Indie Exclusive] Double LP
If you’re the kind of person who reads our blogs and goes down the list on a listening-spree, I’m going to ask you to sit down for this one. Fans of Frightened Rabbit know just how emotionally powerful and moving this group can be in both lyrics and tone; the band will gently hold your hand whilst taking you to look directly into the abyss. It’s hard to describe what genre exactly this wonderful group is other than a revolt against your greatest fears drenched in a thick Scottish accent and chamber-hall like audio effects. Much love goes to this band, if not from their devoted fans, then from me. “Pedestrian Verse” has returned for its 10th anniversary and is here for pre-order.
Dropkick Murphys - “Blackout: 20th Anniversary” Translucent Red
It’s been twenty years since this album came out? Where has the time gone? For fans of bands in similar styles like that of Rise Against, Celtic punk group, Dropkick Murphys, are a staple in the name of the genre. With their unmistakable sound and reputation, “Blackout” is back on shelves after two decades in a gorgeous–and perhaps fitting–translucent red wax. This release is for long-time lovers of the band and new adventurers, alike, and is ready for pre-order.
Drake - “Honestly, Nevermind” CD
For both your rap and house music needs, Drake’s “Honestly, Nevermind” is finally getting an official release on CD. The album has had its moments with unofficial renditions on both vinyl and compact disc, but this time around it’s here for your stereo setup and drives around town. Melodic and smooth-flowing as ever, “Honestly, Nevermind” is for chilling way out, far out. You can pair this pre-order with Drake and 21 Savage’s collaboration album, “Her Loss,” too!
