How Did I Find Myself Here?The Dream Syndicate are at the foundation of contemporary alternative music because back in 1981 at a time when most bands were experimenting with new technology, they choose to bring back the guitar. Their seminal album The Days of Wine and Roses (1984) has been cited as influential by artists from Nirvana to the Black Crowes. Known for their incredible live performances, the band toured with everyone from REM to U2, before splitting up in 1988.
In 2012 after years apart in solo projects, front man Steve Wynn reunited The Dream Syndicate to perform at a charity festival in Spain. The reunited band took everything in baby steps. A few shows here and there-including a still talked-about set at Wilco's Solid Sound Festival. The shows were exciting---for both the band and the eagerly awaiting fans, many of whom weren't even alive when the band were around the first time. The next step was to see if the excitement and newfound chemistry would extend to the studio. From the first day of recording it was apparent that the band was making an album that would live up its history and take their story into the present. Wynn says, In a way it feels like if The Days of Wine and Roses would have been made in 2017. Which is to say that it's true to what we did before but it's also a whole new thing.1.

Dub EggFollowing up on last year's acclaimed limited-edition LP for Mexican Summer, the Austin-based quartet The Young (guitarist/vocalist Hans Zimmerman, bassist Jason Costanszo, guitarist Kyle Edwards and drummer Ryan Maloney) make their proper debut with a crafted, explosive record best summed up as "classic Matador meets classic rock."
After a year sharing the stage with Sic Alps, Kurt Vile, Pierced Arrows, Endless Boogie and other masters of modern rock guitar, their meticulous interplay has become both uncanny and unstoppable. Dub Egg is a shimmering, incandescent approach to classic forms that nobody could have imagined from these guys a couple years ago. The album carries echos of Crazy Horse, Television, Quicksilver Messenger Service, the Dream Syndicate as well as the aforementioned.
Recorded in a woodland cabin, all-analog and self-produced, this exceptionally beautiful sounding rock album, to be released on Matador Records, is the sort of expansive, guitar masterclass (never at the expense of terrific songs, mind you) they've only hinted at previously.1. Livin' Free

Blaze Of GloryTranslucent Pink Vinyl
Even before the world lost musician and author Scott Miller in 2013, the work he did with his band Game Theory had also been missing for decades. Omnivore Recordings is pleased to right that audio wrong with the first in a series of expanded reissues of the Davis, California group's classic catalog.
Blaze Of Glory, originally released in 1982, was the first music from Miller and company, after an album and EP fronting Alternate Learning. It showed the beginnings of the power-pop mixed with new-wave sensibilities the band would become known for and even hints at the upcoming Paisley Underground sound that would take California by storm.
Unavailable in its original form since its initial release (the material was remixed and re-recorded as part of a now out-of-print 1993 compilation that also commands top dollar in collector circles), the vinyl LP also sees its first reissue in over 3 decades. The first pressing on translucent pink vinyl (black to follow).
Mastered from the original tapes and featuring an 8 page booklet with rare photos, an essay from Game Theory tour manager (and set co-producer) Dan Vallor and remembrances from band members and colleagues, including The Dream Syndicate's Steve Wynn.1. Something To Show

Volume 1: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails (Out Of Stock)Rock n' roll vets Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5, R.E.M., Young Fresh Fellows) and Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate, Gutterball, Danny & Dusty, Miracle 3) have an unhealthy love for music undermined only by an even more unhealthy love of baseball. The compatriots blend their two passions with The Baseball Project Volume 1: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails, an album of buzzing guitars and baseball back stories.
The heroes and villains of America's (in)famous pastime are explored with cutting wit and fanboy detail in songs that satisfy both the summer's need for rock anthems and sweltering afternoon double-headers. Drummer Linda Pitmon (Miracle 3, Golden Smog) and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck round out the squad, as they spin tales of ill-fated drinking binges (The Yankee Flipper, The Death of Big Ed Delahanty), near mythical icons (Ted Fucking Williams), folk heroes (Fernando, Satchel Paige Said) and on Gratitude (For Curt Flood), the overlooked man who changed the game.
A passionately funny and sarcastically reverent commentary on the state of the sport, The Baseball Project provides a hip soundtrack to the backstage party at America's game1. Past Time
