We Cool? (Awaiting Repress)In true Jeff Rosenstock fashion, singer/songwriter/all around great guy Jeff Rosenstock shocked the globe today as he finally unleashed details surrounding his highly anticipated new solo album, We Cool?. The LP comes out through SideOneDummy Record...
We Cool? serves as a much-needed alternative to the over-bloated rock star faux-indie bullshit that seems to be overwhelming today's music scene. Mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Tony Molina, Joyce Manor, Deafheaven), this album is a welcome change from Jeff's standard method of making a record.
"The difference between recording in an apartment with a small amount of cheap gear that is constantly breaking vs. an actual studio with cool things to use and a really talented person running everything is immeasurable," Jeff explains.

The Black Sabbath CoversWhen Jason Molina took on another artist's song, he willed his own universe into it, his own
personal and artistic mythology. Be it Conway Twitty or Townes Van Zandt, their blues were
infused with Molina's own entrancing blues. This pair of newly discovered, home-recorded
Black Sabbath covers is no different. Molina, a through-and-through fan of metal (seek out his
high school metal band the Spineriders' album if you haven't yet) peels back the sinister and
stoned elements of Sabbath, zeroing in on the loneliness and brooding.
He takes "Solitude,"
from 1971's unfuckwithable Master of Reality - and one of Sabbath's more mystical, near-proggy
songs - and doubles down on the title. Molina extracts Ozzy Osbourne's gorgeously
cooed vocal performance and transforms it into a high and lonesome sound, a desert campfire
howler. And on his cover of "Snowblind, from 1972's Vol. 4, it becomes obvious what a guitar
hero Sabbath's Tony Iommi was for Molina. Molina seemed to pull from Iommi's odd, simple
fingerings and tunings throughout his catalogue: from his first album (known informally as "the
black album") to Magnolia Electric Co.'s Josephine. Molina's brief acoustic cover dials back the
bombast, but you can surely connect "Snowblind"'s chord progressions with Molina's own on
the black album and Axxess & Ace.
Recorded in the midwest in the late '90s, during Molina's
multi-season run of batting 1.000, these two intimate songs are a bittersweet artifact of one of
the Rust Belt's titan songwriters.
Note: Do not attempt to play Side B of this 7" release. Side B is a gorgeous etching of a
black ram by artist Will Schaff. If you do attempt to play the etching on Side B it will sound
absolutely awful.1. Solitude

HaloJuana Molina is back with yet another masterpiece album, overflowing with emotions, musical ideas and mysterious atmospheres. With Halo, Juana picks up where she left off with her previous acclaimed album Wed 21, and shows once more that she really is on an evolutionary journey of her own devising (Pitchfork), which has brought the eerie, hypnotic music on each of her albums to increasingly haunting heights (Spin).
Halo is Juana Molina's seventh album, it contains twelve songs and was recorded in her home studio outside of Buenos Aires, and at Sonic Ranch Studio in Texas, with contributions by Odin Schwartz & Diego Lopez de Arcaute (who have both been playing live with Juana for a number of years), and Eduardo Bergallo (who has taken part in the mixing of her previous albums), with Deerhoof's John Dieterich making a guest appearance in a couple of tracks.

Magnolia Electric Co
10th Anniversay Deluxe Edition
Expanded Reissue Of Songs: Ohia's Classic Record Gathering Together One Unreleased Song, Demos And Full-band Song Only
Previously Available In Japan.
Includes Rare Photos From The Era In Which It Was Recorded
The hallmark of Jason Molina's career, Magnolia Electric Co., is both a confluence of all he would create and a line in the
sand to mark a shift in his songwriting approach. It was the last statement under his iconic Songs: Ohia moniker, and the
moment before he began making new legends as Magnolia Electric Co. for the next 10 years. Now- here at the end of that
decade - with Molina gone, his work gathers more weight and meaning. This expanded 10-year anniversary edition of
Magnolia Electric Co. features one never-before-released track plus many rarities. The full-band studio outtake of fan
favorite Whip Poor Will is a sweet and spare version that ended up being played far differently on Magnolia Electric Co.'s
final album Josephine (2009). Also included is the studio version of The Big Game Is Every Night. Previously only available
on the Japanese version of the album, this opus serves as Molina's thesis statement, its poetry weaving through the 20th
Century, through art and sporting culture - ultimately questioning what it means to be an American in the autumn of the
American Era. The edition also gathers Molina's gutting demos for the record, including those two outtakes. Nearly each
begins with audible sound of the RECORD button being pressed down on the tape player. They are so close and intimate,
it's hard to look them right in the eyes. But you should.
With the wailing lap steel of the album opener Farewell Transmission, Jason Molina & Company usher in a new day,
playing the sort of rock that your cool uncle rolled to back in the '70s. Landing somewhere on the radar sonically between
Bob Dylan's Desire and Bob Seger's Beautiful Loser, though thematically in-line with Lynyrd Skynyrd's Simple Man, The
Magnolia Electric Co lies at the crossroads of working class rock, white soul, swamp rock and outlaw country
While Songs: Ohia's last record Didn't It Rain was a meditation on roots and stability, Magnolia Electric Co. finds itself
toiling with the wages of change, which is well illustrated in I've Been Riding with the Ghost, a real rig rocker that could
have easily fit on Time Fades Away, on which Molina sings: See I ain't getting better, I am only getting behind. Standing on
the crossroad trying to make up my mind. Trying to remember how it got so late. Why every night pain comes from a
different place. Now something's got to change.
This thematic preoccupation with change also manifests itself in the rotating cast of lead vocalists. While the entire album
boasts a doo wop-like line-up with five vocalists on the floor, six of the eight songs have Molina in the tall stool with the
ever-enchanting Jennie Benford (of Jim & Jennie & the Pinetops, who was also a key player on Didn't It Rain) as primary
back-up vocalist. But on two songs, new Songs: Ohia players step up to take on lead vocal duties, singing Molina-penned
songs. Lawrence Peters takes the lead on The Old Black Hen with his fantastic Merle Haggard-esque country croon, while
Miss Scout Niblett appears from the nether world of the Ohia wardrobe with feathers in her hair and casts her spell on the
Ohia rig barreling through Peoria Lunch Box Blues.
Recorded live, in its entirety, at the hands of Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago, Illinois, with the same
core back-up band that played on the Mi Sei Apparaso Come Un Fantasma Italian live album, this is the record where the
Songs: Ohia fan demographics make a radical shift from the dominant bedroom universe of the world's lonely, sensitive,
overqualified young white dudes, and finds refuge in the masses by being embraced by the world's truck drivers, sorority
chicks, and hockey players, alike. Indeed, this is the first Songs: Ohia record with more than one song that could be played
at a strip joint or monster truck show. Amid the mid-tempo slow jams, there lie some of the most upbeat material that
Songs: Ohia has recorded to date.LP 1

The new album is his first in over three years and follows 2012's solo debut Rhythm & Repose, which Billboard hailed as "Hansard at his most engaging." Didn't He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard's, and Grammy winner and former Frames band-mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, is Hansard's most intimate and elegant record since his work in Once and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon. Glen Hansard is the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames. Whether busking the streets of Dublin, where he got his start, or headlining a gig, Hansard has garnered a reputation as an unparalleled frontman. Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress MarkÉta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly" off the Once soundtrack.

Big WorldListening to San Francisco East Bay s Happy Diving it s hard to believe that they ve only been together since 2013. A year ago, friends Matt Berry, Samuelito Cruz, Mikey Rivera, and Matt Yankovitz decided to form a band after previous projects fell apart. Since then they ve released a self-titled EP in late 2013 that fans of Tony Molina, Connecticut s Ovlov and early Weezer can appreciate. Their debut full-length, Big World, out worldwide on October 21, 2014, was recorded over a whirlwind two days at The Atomic Garden in East Palo, CA, with the help of producer Jack Shirley (Deafhaven, Joyce Manor, Whirr). Big World sees the band channeling the energy first displayed on their Self-Titled EP, as well as their deafening and vivacious live shows, into ten concise, sludgy pop songs. We recommend you listen to this album while road tripping across the country, but if you don t have the time to pack up your cares and get away, Big World fits perfectly into a 30 minute lunch break.1.

ADAD-DEA-8619xStrand Of Oaks
HealFrom the first bars of HEAL, the exhilarating melodic stomp of 'Goshen '97' puts you right into Tim Showalter's fervent
teenage mindset. We find him in his family's basement den in Goshen, IN, feeling alienated but even at 15 years old,
believing in the alchemy and power of music to heal your troubles. "The record is called HEAL, but it's not a soft, gentle
healing, it's like scream therapy, a command, because I ripped out my subconscious, looked through it, and saw the worst
parts. And that's how I got better." HEAL embodies that feeling of catharsis and rebirth, desperation and euphoria,
confusion and clarity.It is deeply personal and unwittingly anthemic.
Showalter was on tour, walking home on a mild autumn night in Malmo, Sweden, when he first felt the weight of the
personal crisis that would ignite him to write HEAL. "It was a culmination of pressure," Showalter recalls. "My marriage
was suffering, I'd released a record I was disappointed in, I didn't like how I looked or acted so I'd gone on tour, I was
gone about two years!I didn't take time to think about failure, but I knew I was going deeper and deeper I was thinking,
I have this life, but it's not my life,I haven't done it right "
When Showalter returned, he wrote 30 songs in three weeks, a process that proved difficult, but cathartic and at times
invigorating.Previous Strand Of Oaks records were more skeletal, raw examples of folk-rooted Americana with occasional
rock and electronic currents,that have now come to the fore.HEAL is a bold new beginning,with a thrilling full-tilt sound
that draws on Showalter's love of '70s, '80s and '90s rock and pop, with the singer and guitarist playing the intense
Crucial to HEAL's sound was the man who Showalter chose to mix the record, the stellar alt-rock icon John Congleton.
Showalter also re-connected with Ben Vehorn, synth expert and studio engineer extraordinaire, and drummer Steve
Clements,who provides HEAL's thunderous ,sinewy drive. Songs such as 'Shut In','Plymouth' and'Woke Up To The Light'
have a classic construction and mood,recalling '70s power-pop/ballads and the yearning ache of Big Star'slate, great Chris
Bell. Many of the songs on HEAL reveal an electronic undercarriage and towering drums that push the album's wired
dynamic to its stretching point, especially on'For Me',which expertly bridges the album's twin decades of influences.And
if 'Goshen '97'recalls the molten energy of Dinosaur Jr, that actually is J Mascis on lead guitar. Despite the initials, the
album's smoldering 7-minute epic 'JM' is not a Mascis tribute, but to the late Jason Molina, about having his music as
comfort no matter how bad things get.
Which brings usto another crisis, this time much more serious and immediate. HEAL was scheduled for mixing on Dec.
26, 2013.Driving on the freeway Christmas Day, Showalter and his wife were involved in a car accident with a semi-truck,
and were fortunate to walk away with their lives. Showalter suffered a, "pretty severe," head trauma, "which affected me
much more than Irealized at the time."Fearing delays, Showalter didn't let Congelton know about it,so the mixing session
went ahead. "Being on the verge of death, and my thoughts being so closely tied to that, changed the album's direction,"
Showalter claims. "Together, we pushed it toward a much more cathartic sound that forces the listener to where I was at
that exact moment,somewhere between almost dying and being absolutely fearless."
HEAL is not just a saviour for its creator, but for anyone who needs reminding of music's ability to heal, or just thrill.
Showalter is taking out a full band to play, and finally, the kid who wanted to be a rock star at 15 might get his chance.
Finally, he and Strand Of Oaks have much to celebrate.1. Goshen '97

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (Out Of Stock)Ranked 208/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
A colossal effort that signifies his first collaboration with Crazy Horse, bar-none the best garage-rock support band ever assembled, Neil Youngs Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere explodes with loose electricity, country-influenced harmonies, and fervent interplay that took melodic rock music in then-unforeseen directions. Moving away from the mellow fare that distinguished his self-titled debut, the pioneering Canadian icon stretches out and showcases his penchant for unhinged guitar solos and drifting arrangements.
Having come across the Rockets while recording his first solo outing, Young spared no time in recruiting the band for his own purposes. With the trio of Danny Whitten, drummer Ralph Molina, and bassist Billy Talbot renamed Crazy Horse, and Young ready with an energetic collection of tunes that called out for longer instrumentals and raw tones, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere was recorded in a scant two weeks time and just four months after Youngs prior effort.
His symbiotic chemistry with fellow kindred spirit and rhythm guitarist Whitten is evident on the drawn-out Cowgirl In the Sand and murderous Down By the River, both a tangle of rolling narratives, mysterious tension, amplified feedback, and longing emotion which remain staples in Youngs live repertoire. As does Cinnamon Girl, which is distinguished by one of the most famous and magnetic riffs of all time. At this stage of his career, Young had never written such an engaging and expressive set of songs and the album remains a landmark on which every tune is a classic.
Having languished for decades, this masterwork has finally received the long-overdue sonic treatment its needed. Remastered from the original tapes by Youngs expert team and overseen by the artist himself, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere now sounds better than ever. Young has never sounded so immediate, detailed, rich, or present on a studio album.
The record joins 1968's Neil Young, 1970s After the Gold Rush, and 1972's Harvest as part of the initial batch of Young recordings pristinely mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high-quality audiophile-grade LP, and packaged in sleeves that faithfully mirror those of the originals.1.
