At just 20-years-old, Arlo Parks has seen her profile steadily rise since the release of her debut single, “Cola,” in 2018. Parks is quick to note the impact independent record stores have had on her, and her ascension in the music world. “I spent a lot of time in indie record stores when I was a kid and I’m really grateful for all they brought to me,” said Parks. “They’re a place where you can really delve into music, explore new music and discover whole worlds of sonic palates.”
Since releasing “Cola,” Parks, a London-based musician and poet, has emerged as a favorite on “artists to watch” lists thanks to a prolific output of delicately-soulful tracks like “Sophie,” “Eugene” and “Hurt.” Along the way, Parks has received praise from the likes of artists like Billie Eilish, Wyclef Jean, Clairo, Florence Welsh and Phoebe Bridgers.
The next stop on Parks’ journey comes on January 29 with the release of her full-length debut, Collapsed in Sunbeams. Parks describes the album as “a series of vignettes and intimate portraits surrounding my adolescence and the people that shaped it. It is rooted in storytelling and nostalgia – I want to feel both universal and hyper-specific.”

Lucero - When You Found Me - Liberty & Lament
Like the great river that flows through Memphis, the music of Lucero keeps rolling on, twisting and turning through the years, the same dark and brooding steadiness always at work. Since forming in late the ‘90s, this group of Memphis road-dogs has mixed heartfelt lyrics with the sounds of early rock and roll, classic punk, country-folk, and deep-fried Southern soul. It’s a sound that stands on the pillars of American music, born more of feeling than technique, delivered night after night to legions of fans in dive bars and theaters, and on stages as august as Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Ryman. In short, it’s music that is built to last, impervious to trends. For their tenth studio album, When You Found Me, the band continues its natural evolution, this time tapping into a more atmospheric, widescreen vision (one that wouldn’t seem out of place on a Reagan-era FM dial) while still staying tethered to its roots. “I wanted a very classic rock sound for this album,” says songwriter and frontman Ben Nichols. “I wanted it to sound like stuff I heard on the radio growing up. I didn’t want to make a retro record at all, but I did want to reference some of those sounds and tones and moods. I think we struck a nice balance between nostalgia and something that still sounds like contemporary Lucero.”
Arlo Parks - Collapsed In Sunbeams - Transgressive
Twenty-year-old, London-based musician and poet Arlo Parks, has been very steadily climbing the ranks as an artist to watch since the release of her confessional debut single "Cola" in 2018. Arlo has received praise from artists such as Billie Eilish, Wyclef Jean, Clairo, Florence Welsh and Phoebe Bridgers during the past year while growing her fan base exponentially. Arlo's debut album "is a series of vignettes and intimate portraits surrounding my adolescence and the people that shaped it. It is rooted in storytelling and nostalgia - I want it to feel both universal and hyper specific." On a personal level, Parks struggled with her identity growing up; a self- confessed tom-boy who was super sensitive and "uncool," she says it was like "I'm a black kid who can't dance for shit, listens to emo music and currently has a crush on some girl in my Spanish class." By the time she reached 17, she shaved her head, figured out she was bisexual and produced/wrote an album's worth of material.

POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR is the newest release from world dominating, multi-award nominated Bring Me The Horizon. Continuing to push their creative boundaries, even during the 2020 global pandemic and lockdowns, the band have created a body of work that is arguably one of their most exciting, diverse, intricate pieces of music to date.
The first two tracks released from the EP were ‘Parasite Eve’ and the colossus ‘Obey’ featuring fellow Brit YUNGBLUD. Other guest artists on this collection include BABYMETAL, Nova Twins and Amy Lee from Evanescence.
Belfast-born, London-based duo Bicep (Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson) release their hotly anticipated second album, 'Isles', on 22 January 2021 via Ninja Tune. Two years in the making, 'Isles' expands on the artful energy of their 2018 debut 'Bicep', while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work, from early days in Belfast to their move to London a decade ago. 'We have strong mixed emotions, connected to growing up on an island' they say, 'wanting to leave, wanting to return'. 'Isles' is, in part, a meditation on these contradictions, the struggle between the expansive and the introspective, isolation and euphoria. Lead single 'Apricots' has a similar feel, steeped in a shimmering bath of warm synths, its spare percussion and arresting vocals bring the big room chills of 90s rave, while still evoking something lost or forlorn.
The Glitz; The Glamour' is a 35-year retrospective of Perry Farrell's life, music and art that looks into his world outside the works of Jane's Addiction and Porno For Pyros, to focus on 68 tracks worth of Perry's Alt-Rock rarities and heart-pounding artistic explorations.

The collection also includes Song Yet To Be Sung, Satellite Party, Kind Heaven, plus heart-pounding remixes from UNKLE, Maceo Plex, Groove Armada, and more. It also includes rare collaborations including Starcrawler, Taylor Hawkins, John Frusciante, Flea, Nuno Bettencourt, Dave Navarro, Peter DeStefano, Etty Lau Farrell, Peter Hook of New Order and a posthumous collaboration with the great Jim Morrison.

Styles We Paid For is Guided by Voices' third album of 2020 and it stands as a testament to this Year In Isolation, reflecting these dark days through Robert Pollard's prism, with the band sounding as confident and authoritative as ever. The fifteen tracks were recorded remotely during quarantine from five states (Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee) to comprise GBV's ninth album since 2017.Pollard's searing vocals hold center stage, with endless melodic invention and impeccable phrasing. The massively crescendo-ing opening track "Megaphone Riley" seems to be inspired by a diabolical politician-in-chief, and like an indie-rock Nostradamus, presciently highlights the "Jumbo Virus", while in the final couplet of the album closer "When Growing Was Simple" Pollard urges "Don't drink and drive / stay at home and eat". Other album highlights include include Big Rock standouts like the incredibly hooky "Mr. Child" with the band in full arena rock power swing, while the titular protagonist is mentioned by name no less than sixteen times; the touching beauty and lyrical relevance of "Stops" and the majestically elegant "In Calculus Stratagem", a bubbly pop rock joyride in "Crash at Lake Placebo"; the subtle current-day technological observations of "They Don't Play The Drums Anymore" and the sleek "Electronic Windows To Nowhere" (written by a man who owns neither a smart phone or a computer). It's notably heavy in it's worldliness, lyrical content, texture, and approach-and rides out like a cinematic journey of the bizarro world one find oneself in.While other bands have been napping, GBV have achieved their second consecutive hat-trick (three albums per annum), and have further cemented their status as rock legends for achieving more in this bleak year then most bands do across their entire careers.
Vinyl LP pressing. Love & Peace sees Seasick Steve mixing up all of his much-loved ingredients to deliver a fresh new record that offers the perfect antidote for the troubled times in which we live. Full of hope for the future, it's a great mix of boogie, blues, rock, Americana and folk - all delivered in Steve's unique style. It's a sizzler of an album that he can't wait to release. "In these crazy times seems to me there just ain't enough love and peace to go around," says Steve. "I ain't exactly sure what this here record got to do with love and peace, but I figured I'd call it that anyways!"
Vinyl LP pressing. Under A Mediterranean Sky is the first new acoustic solo album from legendary guitarist Steve Hackett, since 2008's 'Tribute' - a record that saw him tackling some of the beautiful classical pieces that his guitar idols had also put their hand to. This new album however takes inspiration from Steve's extensive travels around the Mediterranean. "A lot of acoustic ideas had been forming over the years, and it felt like the perfect time to create this album," notes Hackett, "a time to contemplate the places we've visited around the Mediterranean with the kind of music which evolved from the world of imagination." 'Under The Mediterranean Sky' lacks nothing of the grandiosity of Steve Hackett's recent solo electric records, however it does give room to the stunning breadth of approach that he has to playing his acoustic guitar, reminding us once again why Steve is such a revered and respected musician.
The first compilation of tracks album by the band and was released in 1993 during a spate of reissuing and remixing of the bands well known tracks. Double LP with exceptional sound quality.
For the first time on vinyl: Spice Girls - Forever. Originally released in November 2000 the platinum selling album was their final studio album.

Vinyl LP pressing. Jason Bieler (Saigon Kick, Talisman, Super TransAtlantic) delivers the new solo album, Songs For The Apocalypse under the Jason Bieler and The Baron Von Bielski Orchestra moniker. Songs for the Apocalypse sees Bieler working with a diverse array of musical friends including: Todd LaTorre (Queensryche), Dave Ellefson (Megadeth), Devin Townsend, Pat Badger (Extreme), Butch Walker (Marvelous 3), Bumblefoot (Sons of Apollo), Clint Lowery (Sevendust), Benji Webbe (Skindred), Kyle Sanders (Hellyeah) and more! Bieler says, "It will not be my heaviest record yet, but it will feature a bunch of friends and musicians I love and respect. It should sound something like if Neurosis got stuck in a blizzard at a Wawa with Supertramp, then Jellyfish showed up and they all decided to do Barry Manilow covers in the style of Meshuggah, but in waltz time with slight country underpinnings... yet accessible for the masses." All instruments and vocals by Jason Bieler.
