Tash Sultana - Terra Firma [LP] Terra Firma [LP]

One of Australia's greatest self-made successes, Tash Sultana is a one-person powerhouse who commands multiple instruments and gear, whether on-sage or in-studio. A globe-trotting sensation with a live show that needs to be seen to be believed, the 25-year-old's second album Terra Firma is a natural evolution of their multi-dimensional jams. The follow-up to 2016's ARIA-winning Flow State was recorded in a custom-built studio over nearly a year. From the expansive 'Coma' to the evocative 'Greed', almost every note was composed, arranged, performed and engineered by Tash. Improving significantly as a singer, player, producer and arranger, the solo star - for the first time - opened up to like-minded collaborators, including Matt Corby and Dann Hume, Jerome Farah, and Josh Cashman. Spiritually, Terra Firma finds the artist reconnecting to their roots, returning to earth after the dizzying heights of success, and reminding themselves who they are and what it means to be human. Musically however, its 14 tracks take root into far-reaching sonic territory, departing from loops and layers towards meditative combinations of soul, funk, RnB, folk, rock, hip hop ' you name it. 

Tash Sultana $33.98   $31.49

Icon For Hire - Amorphous [LP]
Amorphous [LP]

Since forming in 2007, Icon For Hire (composed of singer Ariel Bloomer and guitarist Shawn Jump) have quietly amassed a legion of followers. Currently sitting at over half a million monthly listeners on Spotify, Icon For Hire are the sleeping giants of the modern rock scene, and are now ready to step into the forefront with new album ‘Amorphous’.

Icon For Hire’s sound is one that effortlessly blends heavy riffs, elements of electronic production and soaring vocal lines into a powerful & bold sonic explosion.However, at the heart of Icon For Hire’s music is a message of positivity, self-love and personal empowerment from the painfully relatable and rousing lyrics of Ariel.

For Amorphous, the band worked with Grammy Nominated engineer Romesh Dodangoda (known for his previous work producing the last Bring Me The Horizon album as well as acts such as Don Broco, Busted, and Kids in Glass Houses).

The album has been completely funded by fans through Kickstarter. This success was achieved thanks to the band’s highly dedicated ICON Army fanbase that support them on Patreon and have been there for the band though thick, thin, litigation, addiction and more.

Having overcome both personal and professional adversity, Icon For Hire are living proof that you can take control of your life—and that’s perhaps the greatest success anyone can hope to accomplish.

Mogwai - As The Love Continues [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Transparent Yellow LP] As The Love Continues [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Transparent Yellow LP]
Mogwai have advanced without a plan since they were teenagers, there have been no secretive meetings to work out the master plan. It is rare to hear a band that has been going for this long, and have this many albums behind them - ten records in and still no disappointments or mistaken creative left turns.You may know what to expect, but you will never get the same. Both transcendent and surprising, As The Love Continues shows that Mogwai are still offering solace from the mundane, supplying the soundtrack to whatever movie you are making in your head.As The Love Continues was originally planned to be recorded in America, but the pandemic led to a relocation to Worcestershire, with producer Dave Fridmann separated by an ocean but appearing like an Orwellian oppressor over the sessions. This pandemic necessity was quickly routine, and it also bought them a little more time. The album features contributions from Atticus Ross ("Midnight Flit") and Colin Stetson ("Pat Stains"), and will arrive almost exactly 25 years after the release of the Mogwai's debut single, "Tuner"/"Lower".Unable to perform the album for the time being, Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite hopes the music can take you from somewhere different to where you are, "unless you are somewhere really amazing and then why are you listening to some weird music like this?"

Loathe - I Let It In And It Took Everything [Gold/Black 2LP] I Let It In And It Took Everything [Gold/Black 2LP]
Double gold and black colored vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Loathe have been making waves in the British underground heavy music scene since their inception in 2014. Debut full-length The Cold Sun was a heady hybrid of meaty down-tuned riffs, lacerating screams and pile-driving rhythms. I Let It In and It Took Everything retains those elements, albeit delivered with a searing potency and sharpened focus that bests it's predecessor in almost every conceivable way. Rather than existing within one style or taking one approach, Loathe pepper their music with a range of influences and musical motifs that move fluidly and give the Liverpool quintet a dynamism that was merely hinted at before. Their palette has widened significantly and surprises are plentiful; shimmering guitars, layered synths, unhinged guitar effects, a stronger emphasis on ethereal clean vocals and even elements that echo the sheer sonic brutality that epitomizes black metal.

Ricky Warwick - When Life Was Hard And Fast [LP] When Life Was Hard And Fast [LP]
Born in Newtownards, County Down, Northern Ireland, singer/songwriter/guitarist Ricky Warwick was cut from the cloth of a mill workers' jacket & raised on a diet of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Thin Lizzy, Stiff Little Fingers, Motown and everything in between. Writing and practicing every free moment he wasn't working on his father's farm, Ricky got a call to join acclaimed U.K. Punk/Folk band New Model Army as rhythm guitarist on their 1987 'Ghost Of Cain' World Tour. Afterward Ricky went on to form The Almighty in Glasgow who enjoyed ten top forty singles and four top twenty albums in the U.K. during the late 80's/early 90's, touring worldwide with such iconic bands as The Ramones, Motorhead, Megadeth and Iron Maiden.In 2002, after relocating back to Ireland, Ricky recorded his first solo album 'Tattoos & Alibis' in Joe Elliott of Def Leppard's studio with Joe also handling production duties. Warwick would go on to release two more solo albums between 2002 -2010 and tour globally opening for the likes of Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, Bryan Adams and Lynyrd Skynyrd. In 2010 Ricky received a call from Scott Gorham who was spearheading a reformation of Ireland's favorite sons Thin Lizzy and wanted Ricky to front the new line up. In late 2012, with a necessity to write and perform new material, out of respect for the Thin Lizzy name, Black Star Riders were born. Black Star Riders have now released four critically-acclaimed and commercially successful albums, the most recent being 2019's 'Another State Of Grace'. They have achieved two U.K. top 15 albums and one U.K. top 10 album as well as mainstream radio play which includes claiming two "singles of the week" on BBC Radio 2. Following 2016's lauded 'When Patsy Cline Was Crazy... And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues', Warwick is getting ready to unleash his 5th solo album in 2021. Titled When Life Was Hard And Fast, it was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Keith Nelson (ex-Buckcherry), who also co-wrote the majority of the songs on the record with Warwick.

Wild Pink - A Billion Little Lights [Light Blue LP] A Billion Little Lights [Light Blue LP]
On Wild Pink's third album and first for Royal Mountain Records, A Billion Little Lights, frontman John Ross explores the dichotomy of finally achieving emotional security - of accepting the love and peace he deprived himself of in his twenties - while also feeling existentially smaller and more directionless than ever before. The record is a two-pronged triumph: an extraordinary reflection on the human condition presented through the sharpest, grandest, and most captivating songs Wild Pink have ever composed.

Hand Habits - Dirt EP [Vinyl] Dirt EP [Vinyl]

dirt is the latest EP from Hand Habits, the songwriting project of Meg Duffy. Comprised of two songs, '4th of july,' a simmering swell of chaos and beauty and 'i believe in you,' a favorite of Duffy's from the Neil Young cannon, the EP finds the songwriter exploring themes of growth and finding ways to let go of the parts of their past that no longer serve them.Duffy recently relocated to a shared living situation in Los Angeles with musicians Sasami Ashworh and Kyle Thomas (King Tuff), which also housed Thomas' studio. The resulting songs showcase this creatively collaborative environment, with Ashworh co-producing the title track and Thomas co-producing 'i believe in you.' Such is the strength of this relationship, in fact, that this new single just may serve as a bridge toward a greater body of work the three will ultimately create together.

This flux is the anchor for the gorgeous and felicitous When the Day Leaves. Driven as it is by departure, When the Day Leaves marks the arrival of Valley Maker as a trustworthy narrator for these shaky times. Crane synthesizes these complex feelings into single, "No One Is Missing." All these thoughts are rendered with newfound lyrical richness, balancing intimate tidbits with universal ambiguity.

Deep Purple - Cal Jam - Live In California '74 [Limited Edition 2 LP] Cal Jam - Live In California '74 [Limited Edition 2 LP]

The Famous California Jam Concert Now On Double Vinyl LP!

On April 6, 1974 Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake & Palmer headlined a legendary music festival called California Jam in Ontario, California, aired live on ABC. About 400,000 people attended this record-breaking concert; it employed the loudest amplification system ever used and was the highest-grossing festival ever at the time.

The concert itself is the stuff of legend. For one, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore locked himself in his room and refused to go on stage when the band was scheduled to perform, fearing that the band's light show would be ruined by the daylight outside. When ABC brought in the sheriff to arrest him, Blackmore agreed to play the set, but ended up smashing equipment, destroying an ABC camera with his guitar, and setting off a pyrotechnic device in one of his amps. The band had to escape via helicopter to avoid the authorities. What a show!
