FRANZ FERDINAND - Always Ascending (Indie Exclusive Pink Vinyl Edition) LP HOLLIE COOK - Vessel Of Love (Indie Exclusive Transparent Pink Vinyl Edition) LP OUGHT - Room Inside The World (Indie Exclusive White Vinyl Edition) LP

A triumphant recasting, Franz Ferdinand’s Always Ascending is as exuberant as it is euphoric, bursting with fresh ideas born of what Alex Kapranos calls “aggressive sonic experimentation.” With the help of producer Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, Beastie Boys), Kapranos and co. took a knife to their old canvas, producing an album that is so foreign in its familiarity it could only be current. A sound the singer refers to as “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic.” These are the louche tales of the Parisian night, the exhilaration of an Italian car racing down the autobahn; a feeling of euphoria so pure it could only exist on a knife’s edge. As such, best to press play expecting nothing more than a good time. “I hope that when you listen to it you feel exhilarated,” Kapranos says, “Until you fully absorb the lyrics.”

On Room Inside the World—Ought’s third album and their first for Merge—growing up doesn’t mean mellowing out so much as it means learning to pay attention, listening carefully and openly, staying somewhere long enough to really understand where you are. Recorded at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn with producer Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Silver Jews), Room Inside the World explores themes that have always concerned the band—identity, connection, survival in a precarious world—but with a bolder, more nuanced sound palette. Vibraphone, justly intonated synthesizers, drum machines, and a 70-piece choir suffuse the precise post-punk breakdowns that spangled Ought’s first two albums, giving rise to an emotional complexity that pushes their characteristically taut sound to greater depths.

PANDA BEAR - A Day with the Homies (Black Vinyl Edition) EP PORCHES - The House (Limited Pale Yellow Vinyl Edition) LP SOCCER MOMMY - Clean (Indie Exclusive Ultra Clear Vinyl Edition) LP

A new 5 track 12” vinyl only EP from Animal Collective founding member and solo artist Noah Lennox a.k.a. Panda Bear.

out 12 JAN 2018...

Porches’ third record The House is a conscious effort in minimalism and honesty. “Making Pool”—the band’s 2016 breakthrough record, and Domino debut—“I learned how valuable the spirit of the demos are,” says singer Aaron Maine, “so this time I made a point of capturing a song the day it was conceived.” Because of this desire to document immediate sensations, the record’s fourteen tracks offer a series of diaristic vignettes.

Limited edition vinyl is pressed on pale yellow wax and includes 11"x22" poster and download code!

Soccer Mommy is the project of twenty-year-old Sophie Allison, a Nashville native. She cut her teeth in her local DIY scene, going to shows and hanging out with other musicians, though she kept her own songwriting secret. All that changed the summer before Allison left for college. She bought a Tascam digital recorder and began to experiment with production, pushing the quality and craft of her songs to new heights.

This is an indie exclusive vinyl pressing on ULTRA CLEAR wax!

Throughout the second half of 2017, Chicago’s Twin Peaks released a run of a half dozen limited-edition 7″ singles the band affectionately dubbed Sweet ’17 . Only 300 copies of each 7″ were made, and subscriptions sold out almost immediately. But due to popular demand, Twin Peaks have compiled all of the songs from the series onto a 12″ release!.

Sweet ’17 Singles follows in the footsteps of Down In Heaven, the band’s 2016 full-length release, which expanded on the garage-inspired sounds of 2014’s Wild Onion.

Freedom's Goblin is the new TY SEGALL album: 19 tracks strong, filling four sides of vinyl nonstop, with an unrestricted sense of coming together to make an album. Out JANUARY 26TH VIA DRAG CITY. The songs came in the flow of the year: days of vomit and days of ecstasy and escape too, and days between. The rulebook's been tossed, but Freedom's Goblin is thick with deep songwriting resources, be it stomper, weeper, ballad, screamer, banger or funker-upper, all diverted into new Tydentities in the name of love and loathing. Whether chilling at home or on tour with the FREEDOM BAND, tracks were cut at five studios in LA, Chicago and Memphis, engineered by STEVE ALBINI, F. BERMUDEZ, LAWRENCE
"BOO" MITCHELL and of course, Ty himself.
