Originally released in 2008, United Nations' eponymous debut
album was destined for commercial controversy from the
moment it was announced. The anticipation surrounding its
release was at a fever pitch as rumors circulated that the
enigmatic band's all-star lineup included members of Thursday,
Glassjaw, and Converge. When the album finally dropped, its
lawsuit-baiting artwork — essentially the originally cover of The
Beatles' Abbey Road album, with all of the Beatles engulfed in
flames — immediately forced at least one major mall retail chain
(rhymes with Not Tropic) to destroy all of the several thousands
of copies it had ordered. The album's entire pressing was then
recalled, destroyed, and repackaged with artwork presumably
less offensive to Sir Paul and Co. The vinyl has been out of print
ever since, and that original artwork has become more myth
United Nations has been remastered for this special deluxe vinyl
edition, and includes an infinite bonus track. The original
"banned" artwork has been restored to its litigious glory, now
expanded to include the previously unreleased panels to
complete the original triptych — all printed on a massive 12x36"
full-color foldout poster. Not content to merely flirt with fire, we
have housed this infamous, inflammatory artwork inside a
custom embossed, numbered old-style gatefold jacket that is
curiously reminiscent of the original Beatles' White Album
Each album is stamped with a sequential number, in a limited
edition of however many it takes for United Nations to get sued.

Barry Adamson’s work as a bassist for Magazine and
Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds gave little indication of the
complex, cinematic works he has composed as a solo
After leaving the Bad Seeds in 1987, Adamson
decided to follow the path of film composers like John
Barry, Ennio Morricone, and Bernard Herrmann,
whose work had intrigued him since childhood.
After some releases with more of a beat-heavy pop
feel, Adamson moved back into the land of noirish
soundtrack with the release of 1996’s Oedipus
Nick Cave adds a guest vocal to (and co-writes) “The
Sweetest Embrace”; Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker can be
heard on the co-written “Set the Controls for the Heart
of the Pelvis”. Adamson’s skill in layering and devising
unusual sound textures still qualifies him as one of
experimental rock’s more imaginative composers and
producers. With this reissue, Oedipus Schmoedipus is
being released on vinyl for the first time.

Jack White presents his new album Lazaretto, released on Third Man Records/Columbia. Lazaretto inhabits an exciting place in White's expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012's gold-certified international #1 Blunderbuss, and was preceded by first single and title track ''Lazaretto.''
The aforementioned Blunderbuss was the first U.S. #1 album of Jack's storied career, also debuting at #1 in the UK, Canada, and, naturally, Switzerland. Blunderbuss was supported by an ambitious world tour featuring two backing bands, the all-male Buzzards and all-female Peacocks, notched up five GRAMMY nominations including Album of the Year, and dominated Best of 2012 lists, including being named MOJO's #1 album of 2012.

“Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara just know how to

“The sisters Söderberg further refine their blend of

“With ‘My Silver Lining,’ these Swedes ride the line of
country and pop with rolling acoustic guitars and
Llsh orchestral accompaniment that sends a message
of hopefulness in pursuing that light at the end of
the tunnel. You should definitely add this song to

Ahead of his forthcoming full-length, Hozier released a 4-track introductory EP, featuring his fast-rising track "Take Me To Church" in addition to "Angel Of Small Death," which reflects the gospel-soul gumbo at the heart of his music, Arcadian acoustic adventure "Like Real People Do," and "Cherry Wine," a raw emotional discourse recorded live at 6am on an abandoned hotel rooftop. Hozier played all the instruments (Fiachra Kinder helped out on drums), sang all the parts and recorded in his home studio, and Rob Kirwan (Depeche Mode, PJ Harvey) mixed the tracks in Dublin.
Born in County Wicklow on St Patrick's Day, Hozier gained worldwide attention nearly overnight when he posted the video for his song "Take Me To Church" in late September. The gripping black and white video, directed by Brendan Canty, highlights the turbulent plight of the LGBT community in Russia via the story of two gay men targeted by a homophobic gang. The powerful video brings life to the emotional song, which touches on the influence of religion on humanity.
The "Take Me To Church" video has quickly racked up views on YouTube, reaching millions of views largely on word of mouth. The track has been a fixture on Spotify's Most Viral charts, regularly appearing in the Top 10 in the US and the UK since the end of last year, and Spotify also selected Hozier as one of their Spotlight Artists to Watch 2014. "Take Me To Church" also hit #1 on Hype Machine's Most Popular chart, and has also been hovering on the top of Ireland's singles chart, outselling acts like Lorde and One Direction week after week. Hozier has been playing to packed rooms in Ireland, and his first London show sold out in minutes, underscoring the phenomenon that has emerged in such a short time. UK tastemaker Zane Lowe has also just selected Hozier for his coveted Hottest Record spotlight.

Bad Blood, the full-length debut from Bastilleis released by Virgin Records. Bastille is the top-selling debut act of 2013 in the U.K., where Bad Blood entered the albums chart at No. 1 earlier this year and has remained in the Top 20 ever since.
The U.S. version of the album will include three bonus tracks – “The Silence,” “Weight of Living, PT. I” and “Laughter Lines.”
Bastille will made its U.S. television debut on “Conan” July 24. The U.K. band played a sold-out show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and will return to the States in the fall of 2013 for its first North American tour.
Haunt, Bastille’s four-song EP debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart after being released digitally. “Pompeii,” the lead single, is already Top 20 at Modern Rock, and has been added by numerous stations, including KROQ-Los Angeles, 98/7-Los Angeles, Live 105-San Francisco, Q877-Chicago, KTCL-Denver, WRFF-Philadelphia, KTBZ-Houston, DC101-Washington DC and SiriusXM’s Alt Nation. The “Pompeii” video has more than 30 million views.
Dan Smith, the founder of Bastille, envisioned the “Pompeii” clip as the novel I Am Legend if it were shot by the director of Drive, which hints at how inextricably intertwined music, film and literature are in his creative process. Rounding out Bastille’s lineup are Will Farquarson, Kyle Simmons and Chris “Woody” Wood. The four musicians have been playing and touring together for more than two years and while each has his main role in Bastille, they effortlessly trade places on vocals, keyboards and percussion. The band’s spring 2013 U.K. headline tour sold out immediately, with all 44,000 tickets gone in a day, and they are playing major festivals in the U.K, Europe and Japan this summer. Bastille’s performance of “Pompeii” at Glastonbury can be seen here.
While Bad Blood sounds lush, it was actually recorded in a tiny room on limited equipment – apart from a day spent recording strings in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Smith, working with producer Mark Crew, aimed to approach each song differently.
“I wanted each to be its own story with its own atmosphere which brings in different sounds and elements of production, incorporating aspects of the different genres and styles that I love: hip hop, indie, pop and folk,” he explains. “Film soundtracks can be broad and varied, but tied together by the film itself. I hope the album will be something like that, but held together by my voice and the songwriting, each song a scene or part of a bigger picture.”
“Pompeii” is an epic in miniature, a conversation between two charred bodies, frozen in time, caught in the ash that engulfed the Roman city of sin while songs like the title track and “Things We Lost in Fire” touch on the changing dynamics of relationships. “‘Bad Blood’ is an album crafted in one of modern pop’s greatest refineries,” observed Artrocker, awarding it five stars, while BBC Music said, “Bastille really deliver.” Q named “Overjoyed” as “Track of the Day,” noting, “[Bastille’s] bewitching mixture of softly delivered vocals and glitchy tracks creates an impressive atmosphere.”

According to Balance and Composure, they can be loud, quiet and everything in between. A pretty apt description in a nutshell. Once you get down to an
intricate school of thought, the lyricism of singer Jon Simmons shows things in a different light. Having all met in the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, PA through mutual projects during their high school years, Balance and Composure was formed.
A sonic assault melding influences such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana, their 2011, critically heralded debut album, Separation, adhered to the band's namesake. A cohesive listen of anthemic and melodic guitar blitzes with poignant lyricism, rhythmic thrusts and an abrasive pop knack in its overall deliverance, Separation helped establish Balance and Composure as one of underground rock's most promising newcomers.
Following their debut, Balance and Composure toured continuously over the next several years with the likes of Circa Survive, La Dispute, Touche Amore
and Title Fight. In the Spring of 2013, the band embarked on their first ever U.S. headlining tour with the recently reunited The Jealous Sound as support. After selling out venues in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and New York, it was clear their popularity was at an all time high.\
Picking up where Separation left off, Balance and Composure return once again to push the boundaries of their music with driving riffs and intensely
passionate vocals on the band's long-awaited second studio album, The Things We Think We're Missing. It's the type of record that makes listeners pause and reflect, evoking moments of happiness and sadness over the course of thirteen songs.

Heather Woods Broderick excels at distilling her experiences into a soulful melancholy
that's enduring both for it's intimate relatable moments and its persistent
sense of mystery. Her uncanny ear for evocative production and gorgeous vocal
harmonies serves her well on her new album Glider. Throughout the album, the rich
dreamlike atmospheres she creates hint at a darkness looming on the horizon, while
the singularity of her ethereal voice always seems to linger long after the music has
As a talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Heather has had the opportunity to
record and tour with plenty of incredible artists including Horse Feathers, Efterklang,
and Sharon Van Etten, which has kept her moving house and traveling around
the world for much of the past decade. She's currently living in Portland, Oregon,
but it's easy to imagine how her peripatetic lifestyle might diminish her sense of a
place to call home, while also strengthening her resilience, and her connection to
the reassuring constants in her life. As she explains "Living in so many different
places has made me able to feel pretty comfortable everywhere." Her uncommon
sense of ease and grace, despite her hectic life, stems in part from her deeply
rooted and intertwined musical and familial background.
Music took root in Heather's life before she was even born, when her parents, both
musicians, met for the first time at one of her mom's gigs, which her dad was
attending. The two married and moved to Maine where Heather, second of three
children, was born at home. When she was 8-years-old the family moved across the
country to Oregon, and soon after moving, she asked if she could take piano
lessons, a practice she would continue through high school and into college. In
elementary school band she learned flute, and later picked up cello and guitar.
Though the songs on Glider aren't explicitly about touring, her life on the road
provides the backdrop and context for her songs that are often about relationships
that naturally fade as two people grow apart. "I've realized that I really used the
songs on Glider and the time I put into writing them as a way to pay some attention
to things I'd been putting off, and to find some clarity around certain events," says
Heather. Building on what she learned from her first solo effort From the Ground
(2009), the dynamic structures and emotional complexity of her new songs are
evidence of how much she's grown as a person and as a songwriter. More confident
and self-assured than ever, songs like "Fall Hard" evolve from vulnerable bare piano
and vocals to hypnotizing swells of vocals reminiscent of Grouper or Cocteau Twins'
Elizabeth Fraser. Her voice soars in stride with a wall of guitars on "Wyoming",
while "Mama Shelter" introduces a gentle groove as Heather conjures the sensuality
of Stevie Nicks. The album closes with the heartbreaking "All for a Love", ending
with the refrain "I can see our love is dragging you down." As dark as the sentiment
can be, Heather always seems to be leaning into the light.

“An album is, or ought to be, a complete picture. It should come in waves,
changing its focal point when things get too predictable or settled.”
With this statement to Ann Powers that accompanied NPR’s premiere of Houndmouth’s
surreal, Dylanesque ballad “For No One,” singer/guitarist Matt Myers -
perhaps inadvertently - issued a mission statement for the band’s second album.
Little Neon Limelight finds the four-piece stretching out in every direction. Working
with producer Dave Cobb in Nashville, they were able to bring the kind of size and
warmth that does justice to this batch of songs, worked out over eighteen months
on the road, and resonant with joy, hurt, loneliness, glory: all of human ache and
Little Neon Limelight finds Houndmouth further differentiating themselves from the
airtight song structures and shouty singalongs of the current “Americana” scene,
treading into territory occupied by not only their Southern rock forebears, but with
an attention to songwriting and vocal performance recalling at times The Band,
Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch, the Beatles, and the Kinks.
“If you want to live the good life, you’ve gotta stay away from the limelight,” Houndmouth
sings in the chorus to album track “My Cousin Greg.” With their outstanding
new record, and a substantial fanbase that swells with every show they play, it will
soon be difficult for Houndmouth to follow their own rule.

Alt-j, the breakthrough band of 2012 with the wholly unique vision, follow up the recent release of their single, 'Matilda', with the release of their debut album, "An Awesome Wave", featuring thirteen tracks laced with their already distinctive sound, was recorded with long-time producer Charlie Andrew (Micachu and The Shapes, Eugene Mcguinness).
Veering wildly from psychedelic avant-pop to skeletal folktronica, the finished album trades in understated beauty one minute and epic oddities the next, just as you'd expect from a debut album that tackles everything from love to bullfighting to the heroic life of 1930s war photographer, Gerda Taro, who was crushed by a tank on the frontline.
Other tracks are inspired by cinema, including lead single, 'Matilda' (about Natalie Portman's character in Luc Besson's Leon) and the good the bad and the ugly-referencing "Tessellate".

Epitaph is pleased to welcome This Wild Life to the roster. This Wild Life will release their debut album Clouded in 2014.
Hailing from Long Beach, CA, This Wild Life is duo Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso. Jordan and Del Gross grew up in the tightknit DIY punk scene in Long Beach. They quickly became friends after working at the same musical instrument store, bonding over music of their teens. The conversations were about hardcore, punk and scream bands such as Thursday, The Used, and Senses Fail. Soon enough, they started their own pop-punk band and made music together as This Wild Life. They played fast, they played loud and they didn’t stand out from the crowd until they did the least “punk” thing possible. It was also bolder than anything in the punk rock rulebook: they got quiet and played acoustically.
The music itself connected with fans, even as it surprised them. They take pride in making music based in hardcore and punk rock, but with wider appeal. In contrast to the harsh music that This Wild Life grew up on, Jordan finds inspiration for his vocals outside the hardcore punk world. “Sara Bareilles is one of my favorites. Maybe people wouldn’t expect that. Or maybe they would,” he laughs.
A big part of who they are as a band is to remain true to their DIY punk ethic. After shows are played, tweets responded to and comments acknowledged online. The band put in the work to gain the support of their fan base. Now, This Wild Life has an army of 80K YouTube subscribers with videos of over 2.75 million views.
Clouded is their debut full-length and was recorded with Aaron Marsh of Copeland. Clouded maintains the core attributes of their sound – Jordan’s vulnerable, expressive lyrics, DelGrosso’s nimble fingerpicking – while pushing themselves towards more ambitious sounds. “We tried out a string section, pianos, different kinds of guitars, we didn’t want to limit ourselves,” Jordan notes.
Clouded is the triumphant result of years marked by small triumphs, big struggles and countless floor shows, bringing This Wild Life’s heartfelt, melodic and acoustic punk-rock to a bigger audience they’ve earned.

Old 97’s Classic Debut Gets An Expanded 20th Anniversary Reissue!
Translucent Orange 2-LP
The Old 97’s burst onto the alt-country scene in 1994 with their
debut, Hitchhike To Rhome. To celebrate this anniversary, Omnivore
Recordings is proud to reissue Hitchhike with an expanded release —for the first time—on double LP!
When band member, and set co-producer, Ken Bethea was revisiting
the original tapes for this reissue, he discovered a whopping eight
extra tracks cut at the album sessions—many of which the band hadn’t
even remembered recording. It seemed the perfect time and place
to bring those previously unissued songs to light and add the tracks
from their fi rst four song demo cassette to round out the early
picture of the 97’s.
The double LP (limited edition first pressing on translucent orange vinyl) features the LP on 3 sides with
6 of the recently unearthed tracks on the 4th. It also includes rare photos, memorabilia and notes from Bethea.

Recorded with Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus, Swans) in Upstate New York through the late Winter/Spring of 2011, Days is a gorgeous suite of timelessly melodic, achingly melancholy pop songs and a delightfully confident follow-up to 2009s exceptionally well-received eponymous debut.
Comprised of nine new recordings and a revisit of last years enduringly wonderful Out Of Tune standalone single, that appeared as a now out-of-print 7 vinyl on True Panther, Days is the next step in the career of a uniquely close songwriting collective that feel more important with their every release.

“‘Adult Diversion’ is a whimsical dream jam and brings “feel-good” to
a staggering high.“ - Consequence of Sound
“...a complete collision of everything we already love: singalong
lyrics, a guitar-driven backbone, and a sun-drenched vibe...”
“Alvvays make wistful, jangly, Brit-tinged indiepop.”
“...somewhere between the sun-drenched shores of California and
the preppy Scottish countryside.”
Alvvays are two women, three men, a crate of C-86 tapes and a
love of jingle-jangle. Molly Rankin and Kerri MacLellan grew up
as next-door neighbours in Cape Breton, lifting fiddles and folk-songs. Heartbreaks of different shades soon entered their lives, as
did the music of Teenage Fanclub and Belle & Sebastian. Similar
noisy melancholy drifted over to Prince Edward Island, finding
Alec O’Hanley, Brian Murphy and Philip MacIsaac.
Convening in Toronto, the group have been making music since
since dusk or maybe dawn, when stars were appearing or fading
off. As a result, their debut self-titled album is both sun-splashed
and twilit -- nine songs concealing drunkenness, defeat and death
in tungsten-tinted pop that glitters like sea glass.
With needlepoint melody and verse, Rankin and O’Hanley’s songs
were recorded at Chad VanGaalen’s Yoko Eno studio and mixed
by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and John Agnello (Sonic Youth,
Dinosaur Jr., kurt Vile). The resultant album is loud and clear and
sure. Flood your ears.

Let’s get down to brass tacks: Ridgewood, NJ’s Real Estate took a mighty leap
forward on their last go-around... more record sales... bigger shows... and, more
importantly, a timeless classic of an album, Days. It’s been two years since the
release of Days, and it’s an album that still sounds as fresh today as it did on
release date. Their new album, Atlas, builds upon the lush guitar warmth of Days
while adding more powerful harmonies and keyboard flourishes bringing even more
depth to their heart-warming sound.
Atlas was recorded over the summer at Wilco’s Chicago recording studio, The Loft,
with producer/mixer Tom Schick (Wilco, Rufus Wainwright, Alex Chilton), and while
this pairing that looks so good on paper, sounds even better on record!
Real Estate kick off the campaign with the dreamy pop single “Talking Backwards,”
which was released as a limited edition 7”at the end of February.

The 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s third and ultimately final studio album, In Utero, continues apace, with its 2013 Mix, mastered at Abbey Road Studios,
issued as a 45 RPM 180 gram vinyl double album--cut to copper plates using the direct to metal mastering process, and housed in stunning alternate
artwork exclusive to this release.
The 2013 Mix finds original producer Steve Albini revisiting In Utero with the blessing and oversight of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. With an approach
described as more of an alternate snapshot of the same entity than a typical "remix" or "new mix," the 2013 Mix coaxes forth never before heard nuances-
-and including unearthed alternate performances on some tracks--and finds incredible new sonic dimensions of the unwitting swansong of the single most
influential artist of the 1990s.
Upon its original 1993 release, In Utero was easily the most polarizing record of a generation. The most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt
Cobain, Novoselic and Grohl would ever record, it was also the first record Nirvana would make with any expectations from the public. The In Utero 2013
Mix double vinyl edition offers yet another perspective of the final and perhaps finest hour of Nirvana: of the most incredible yet conflicted rock ‘n’ roll band
of the era at the peak of its powers surmounting struggles from within and without to make the record they needed to make.

More than 15 years after its original release, the Smashing Pumpkins’ Adore, will be reissued as a double LP. The
Smashing Pumpkins’ Adore, the follow up to the band’s mega-successful 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, offered a new
entrance to the band’s career as Corgan experimented with and without the band as Jimmy Chamberlin’s absence played as large a role as his presence
might have in the making of the record.
