The Phoenix symbolizes a new beginning. The fire burns off the last vestiges of the past as the bird spreads it's wings and takes flight into the future. The Polyphonic Spree harness the flames of rebirth on their 2023 full-length offering, Salvage Enterprise. Led by frontman, founder, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and visionary Tim DeLaughter, the group embark on their next season. They're reverent of their history, yet they're also ready for an even brighter tomorrow."Across all of the music I've done, lyrically there's a sense of desperation and a moment of convincing myself I'm going to make it through regardless of how the music dresses up," notes Tim. "On this one, I struggled with the amount of vulnerability I was experiencing and was willing to share both musically and lyrically, but ultimately decided to let it play out. Now that it's done, I'm happy with the dance between the two. It's a 'rising-from-the- ashes' record."Salvage Enterprise beckons complete immersion. Opener "Gallop- ing Seas (Section 44)" affixes softly strummed acoustic guitar to an orchestral hum as Tim urges, "Hold on through the galloping seas." "We're all galloping through rough waters," he says. "I tried to describe the process as well as I could and encourage people to keep their heads above the storm and the waves. Ride it out. It's going to be okay. It starts off very calm and introspective, and you can envision where it's going."Flute echoes over nimbly plucked guitar during "Shadows On The Hillside (Section 48)" as keys twinkle. A glorious harmony amplifies the nostalgia of "Hop Off The Fence (Section 49)." It concludes with "Morning Sun, I Built The Stairs (Section 52)." Optimism strains through his hopeful intonation, "I learned to fly, the more that I become a new reason, I want to try," uplifted by boisterous horns and cinematic strings. It crashes into an Ennio Morricone-style crescendo bolstered even higher by operatic vocals."There is an arc of leaving the world behind, stripping your old self away, and becoming new again," he offers. "You're shedding off this old world, and you're heading into the future. It's an epic ending. You've made it. You're going to be alright."In the end, The Polyphonic Spree are the soundtrack to that light at the end of the tunnel.

Released in 1998, Up is the eleventh studio album from R.E.M. The album, featuring the singles "Daysleeper,” “Lotus,” “Suspicion” and “At My Most Beautiful,” draws inspiration from electronic music, using a wide range of tools to create a dreamy pop landscape that is reflective and moody. This expanded deluxe 25th anniversary edition also offers a complete previously unreleased live set from the band’s appearance in ’90s hit TV series Party of Five.

The surprise companion to The National’s April release First Two Pages of Frankenstein, Laugh Track is the band’s most freewheeling, all-hands-on-deck album in years. If Frankenstein represented a rebuilding of trust between group members after 20+ years together, the vibrant, exploratory Laugh Track is both the product of that faith and a new statement of intent. Reveling in the license to radically upend its creative process, The National honed most of this material in live performances on tour, and captured those invigorated versions in impromptu sessions at producer Tucker Martine’s Portland studio. Two nights later in Vancouver, the nearly eight-minute album closer “Smoke Detector” was recorded during soundcheck, completing a body of work bristling with spontaneity and vintage rock energy that makes a perfect complement to the songs found on its more introspective predecessor.

Torchbearers for British guitar music, The Vaccines - Justin Young (lead vocals, guitars), Árni Árnason (bass, vocals), Timothy Lanham (guitars, keys, vocals) and Yoann Intonti (drums) - are back with their sixth studio album Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations. The title comes from a misremembered lyric from Don McClean's "American Pie," a song that for Young fittingly evokes the death of innocence and the American Dream. After he moved to Los Angeles - a city the band has grown up being captivated by - he was forced to wrestle with the disillusionment that comes when expectations, dreams, and reality don't quite meet. Yet, though Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations is an album about reconciling with loss, it's also filled with gratitude for the people and places we once loved.

"Pink carnations symbolise gratitude and tell a person they’ll never be forgotten," says Young. "So whether it's the loss of a lover, or a friend, or even just a dream, the record is a reminder that they’ll live on in whatever capacity the mind allows them to. And it's a reminder to keep on dreaming.”

Produced by Andrew Wells (Halsey, Phoebe Bridgers) with Mixing from Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips), Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations is an immediately anthemic addition to the band's discography. With a mammoth five UK Top 5 albums – including a Number 1 with 2012’s Come of Age – and a fierce live reputation forged through arena-filling headline shows and unforgettable slots at Glastonbury and Reading/Leeds, The Vaccines continue to be a vital band in the British rock canon.

Featuring remastered audio, taken from the ‘Chasing The Sun’ reissues - available for the first time as one collection - ‘The Masterplan’ is an extraordinary collection of B-sides originally featured on singles from Oasis’ era-defining first three albums, ‘Definitely Maybe’ (1994), ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ (1995), and ‘Be Here Now’ (1997). Far from being inferior to the singles they backed, many of the 14 tracks that feature on ‘The Masterplan’ have become as cherished as the band’s biggest singles from that seminal period. The album includes tracks ‘Acquiesce’, ‘Half The World Away’, ‘Talk Tonight’, Oasis’ iconic live cover of The Beatles’ ‘I Am The Walrus’ and the epic title track. Noel has often described ‘The Masterplan’ as one of the best songs he has ever written. Formats include CD, Heavyweight Black LP and limited-edition Silver LP, to celebrate 25 years. ‘The Masterplan’ charted at No.2 in the UK Official Album Chart UK selling over 122,000 copies in its first week. It went on to be certified triple platinum and has sold over three million copies worldwide.

Carrie Underwood - Denim & Rhinestones [Deluxe Edition Picture Disc 2 LP]

    A week of deep and spectacular new offerings kicks off with a brush-up on an old classic. THE BREEDERS' sophomore smash 'Last Splash' turns 30 this year with a new edition, remastered for the first time under the watchful ear of Kim Deal herself, and expanded to a 45rpm double LP. This is the ideal record to receive this type of treatment: few songwriters have the knack for melodic oddities like Deal and Company, and this album is crammed full of unusual sonic details, from Kim and Kelley's vocals recorded in a bathroom stall, to the bullet mic inside a Marshall stack feedback that opens up "Cannonball", to the surf-noir elegance of "No Aloha", which begins with Kelley Deal playing a pedal steel for the first time in her life. We could go on and on! 'Last Splash' emerged at the precise moment that grunge broke mainstream, smuggling in all sorts of underground indie brilliance to the light of day, but very few records have had such a lasting impact as this one. Veteran jam band PHISH's fourth studio album, the mature and contemplative 'Rift', also turns the big 3-0 this year, celebrating with a new limited blue vinyl edition. Indie supergroup THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS dynamic second album 'Electric Version' comes back to us after many years out of print, in a blue vinyl pressing as well, plus we've got a super snazzy looking picture disc version of 'The Lonesome Crowded West' by MODEST MOUSE, previously only available at the band's shows. Numero's quest to revise the history of 90s emo brings them to a mighty, nearly unknown Bay Area band called POT VALIANT, who released just one rare LP and a few singles of fuzzy, arcing bootgaze, all collected on 'Never Return'. Boston jazz-rock heroes MORPHINE perfected their brand of sultry, nocturnal groove on their final two albums, 'Like Swimming' and 'The Night', both of which are back in print this week.
    Daptone Records producer VICTOR AXELROD has blessed the label with some of its most distinctive instrumentals, blending rocksteady and soul. A new cant-miss collection called 'If You Ask Me To...' pulls together an impressive spread of the man's work, previously only available on 45 b-sides. The inventive, whimsical, shapeshifting songwriter DEVENDRA BANHART seems so well-suited to record with Cate Le Bon, it's kindof surprising that 'Flying Wig' is his first LP with her at the boards, in on opaque blue wax. Mongolian jazz singer ENJI returns with a delightfully-realized collection of songs called 'Ulaan'; if you have yet to hear this genuine marvel of modern traditional song, do yourself a favor! Trumpeter, bandleader, Gondwana label head MATTHEW HALSALL has become quite reliable with his albums of mellifluous, dawn-breaking albums, and his latest, 'An Ever Changing View' may be the best yet. Pianist and beatmaker KIEFER continues to approach perfection with 'It's Ok, B U', in the house on "moon yellow" wax, and we've got another cracking selection of retrofuturistic lounge jazz from SVEN WUNDER on 'Late Again'.
    Griselda survivor CONWAY THE MACHINE see's his triumphant third album 'Won't He Do It' finally hit vinyl, and DENZEL CURRY reboots an early career classic '32 Zel' from 2017. Philadelphia synth-soul contingent FANTASY 15 deliver an incredibly vibey debut LP called 'Zoltandia' on purple wax, and we've got some limited seven inch reissues in, including DE LA SOUL's 'Magic Number' and 'Me Myself & I', and HOUSE OF PAIN's 'Jump Around', just in time for all u Badger fans to make some noise.
    Country realist LYDIA LOVELESS returns with a highly-awaited new LP, the Rumours-y 'Nothing's Gonna Stand In My Way Again', in stock on 'silver countertop' vinyl. The post-Petty, post-Vile cruisers in SLAUGHTER BEACH, DOG are back with a rollicking jam of an LP called 'Crying, Laughing, Waving, Smiling'. Power pop inventors TEENAGE FANCLUB continue to sound as sharp and innovative as ever on 'Nothing Lasts Forever'. SUSAN TEDESCHI's high-octane 'Just Won't Burn' turns 25 years old this year, but it hasn't lost any of its bluesy fire or meticulous musicianship. Few did folk-rock balladry in the late 90s like PAULA COLE, 'This Fire' has all her gems, back in print this week alongside another classic of that era, SARAH MCLACHLAN's 'Surfacing'. Right now, there's an animal that needs you.
    KHRUANGBIN wrap up their delightful '& Friends' live series with a slab alongside TORO Y MOI called 'Live at The Fillmore Miami' that's sure to be a glorious pop treat. One of the biggest influences on the Texas trio's sound is the 70s Cambodian pop singer SINN SISAMOUTH, and we've got 'Groove Club Vol. 4', an amazing collection of some of his biggest psych-surf hits. A pair of jazzy and sleek city pop bangers land in the shop this week, guitarist YUJI TORIYAMA's gleaming 1983 self titled gem, and the buoyant boogie of MOMOKO KIKUCHI's '86 LP 'Adventure'. A reissue of an extremely rare late 70s Japanese folk gem from JOYAMA NO NARAZUMONO is back in print, pairing well with a fresh edition of the beastly guitar psych altar 'Satori' by the FLOWER TRAVELLIN' BAND.
    Producer LORAINE JAMES continues to develop her sensuous brand of beat-belayed atmospheric electronic pop on 'Gentle Confrontation', her latest for Hyperdub. Turkish producer NENE H dials back the club muscle on 'Ali', a hypnotically moving album of vaporous ambience dedicated to mourning the loss of a loved one, on Anthony Naples' Incienso label. Bedroom auteur COLLEEN brings her trademark stillness to a haunting selection of analog synth pieces on 'Le jour et la nuit du réel', in-stock on clear vinyl with gold flecks, a beauty! Synthpop whiz kid ROOSEVELT returns with 'Embrace', we've got a new one from J-Pop superheroes CHAI, and a repress of the classic UK house banger 'Kish Kash' by BASEMENT JAXX, on red and white vinyl.
    With a new life partner and label deal with Island, TOM WAITS hoofed it to NYC in the early 1980s and began a prolific run of his most experimental albums, inspired by Captain Beefheart, Harry Partch, and true love in equal measure. 'Swordfishtrombones' from 1983, 'Rain Dogs' from 1985, and 'Frank's Wild Years' from 1987 all get remastered vinyl reissues this week. NEIL YOUNG fan-fave 'Harvest Moon' gets a limited clear vinyl reissue this week, and we have the first-ever vinyl edition of 'Time Capsule', the absolutely jam-packed greatest hits compilation from THE B-52'S. The world of R&B lost one of the smoothest voices in the game with the passing of BOBBY CALDWELL this year. The Be With label has done us all a favor with reissues of two of his maddeningly elusive albums, his 1978 self-titled debut (home of "What You Wont Do For Love", one of the greatest songs of all time), and his 1980 follow-up, ''Cat In The Hat'.
    The joyful sound of South African kwela jive has seldom had more room to move around than on BRA SELLO's electrifying 1975 album 'Butterfly', reissued for the first time, with two long sides of extended jams. Free jazz pioneer MARION BROWN was joined by the innovative percussionist Han Bennink on 1969's 'Porto Novo', back in print this week. ALAIN GORAGUER absolutely snapped when he made the soundtrack for 'La Planet Sauvage', an early 70s French animated film about extra-terrestrial space travel that must be seen (and heard) to be understood. This masterpiece of orchestral funk and synthetic sound effects gets proper reissue treatment this week with restored artwork and an expanded track list. A lovely LP called 'You Loved Me' collects the unreleased material that would have been avant-garde jazz singer PATTY WATERS' third album, before she retired from music for a few decades. BETTY DAVIS' explosive avant-soul album 'Is It Love Or Desire' gets a new gold vinyl pressing, and we've got two fresh reprints of classic 60s/70s recordings from timeless Egyptian singer OUM KALTHOUM: 'Wa Maret El Ayam' and ;Hakam Aleena El Hawa'.
    RYUICHI SAKAMOTO's surging soundtrack for the film 'Revenant' gets a fresh vinyl edition this week. LA downers DRAB MAJESTY deliver 'An Object In Motion', a rather engrossing mini-album of gloomy rock reminiscent of Felt or the Duruttis. It's been far too long since we've heard from the ceremonial post-rockers GRAILS, who make a vivid comeback this week with 'Anches En Maat', alongside the mighty Chilean kraut-jammers FOLLAKZOID, who bring another massive album of churning miasma called 'V'. Producer BIBIO returns with another cracking EP called 'Sunbursting', and the newsletter's final gasp comes from FINAL GASP, with their hardcore-laced deathrock album 'Mourning Moon'.
