CommonwealthThis 15-song collection sees Sloan creating one of the most unique and ambitious recordings of their two-decade-plus career. The Toronto-based rock quartet is perhaps the most truly democratic group in the annals of pop, with Jay Ferguson, Chris Murphy, Patrick Pentland, and Andrew Scott all contributing original compositions to each record, equal partners with equal say over every aspect of their work. Where in the past creative lines have been blurred to create the multi-faceted Sloan sound, Commonwealth sees the four bandmates disassociating ever so slightly to create an old-school double album sequenced with each member staking out a single side as their own artistic dominion.LP1

The Double Cross (Awaiting Repress)Following their most critically-acclaimed albums to date, SPIN called Never Hear the End of It, the best British Invasion best-of you've never heard, and Pitchfork called Parallel Play almost flawless, Canadian pop iconoclasts Sloan are ready to celebrate. Their recent albums would be reason enough but 2011 marks the 20th Anniversary of the band, and how better to honor such an occasion than a brand new prolific album with power pop gems.
Sloan delivers just that with their 10th album The Double Cross, a titular shout-out to the band's 20th (or XX) anniversary. The album kicks off as awesome as universal healthcare with Follow the Leader and the sure-fire sync license riffage of Unkind. Raise your glasses to 20 years of Sloan!1. Follow the Leader

Sad GirlRising singer-songwriter Sasha Sloan has signed to RCA Records. After emerging last fall writing and appearing on several high-profile collaborations, Sasha released her debut single "Ready Yet" and has amassed over 10.4 million Streams on Spotify alone. Since then, she's established herself as an artist to watch as she continues to release emotionally-rich, left-of-center pop such as her first release of 2018, "Normal." Heralded by Billboard as a "catchy introvert anthem," the track has already been streamed over 9.4 million times. Both "Ready Yet" and "Normal" are among the six tracks featured on Sasha's debut EP, sad girl, set for release on vinyl via RCA Records.
Along with "Ready Yet" and "Normal," sad girl features the string-drenched "Fall," the heart-wrenching ballad "Here," the equally vulnerable yet optimistic "Hurt," and "Runaway." "Runaway," as Complex put it, "finds Sloan pouring her soul out over a melancholic backdrop as she deals with heartbreak."
"I wanted to put out a blueprint for who I am with this EP, because I'm still figuring it out. It's definitely been scary at times, but it's also been exciting to share these songs and hear how people relate to them," Sasha says, "I'm so grateful for everyone's support over these last few months and am excited to be a part of RCA as I continue to grow."
Says Peter Edge, Chairman and CEO, RCA Records; "We are thrilled to have Sasha Sloan join the RCA Records family. Her brilliant confessional songwriting and phenomenal melancholic vocal style represent a fresh, unique artistic vision and perspective. We're looking forward to a very bright future together."1.

Pair A Dice FoundImport
In 1969 Jefferson Airplane members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady formed Hot Tuna. Begun as an acoustic spinoff of the Jefferson Airplane, the American blues rock band eventually became the full-time focus of founding members Casady and Kaukonen, emerging as a popular touring act of the 70s.
The album Pair a Dice Found was originally released in 1990 and was Hot Tuna's first new album release in more than a decade.

UNIM-AST-0570xEmpire Of The Sun
Two VinesAlt-electro pioneers Empire Of The Sun return with their third studio album, Two Vines, set for release via Astralwerks. With Two Vines, the Australian band invites listeners to enter the jungle paradise that marks the third remarkable age of the Empire Of The Sun. Through a waterfall of dreams, beyond the white light of an ice curtain lies a lush, green world where childlike innocence and ancient wisdom are one. The album's first single, "High & Low," offers a glimpse of this dreamlike kingdom.
"We always saw Empire as a movie," says Nicholas Littlemore, the co-pilot with Luke Steele of this fantastic vessel of electro-futurist sound and vision. "The whole concept was based around childhood fantasies; being in bed and staring at the posters on your wall, whether they were monster movies or outlandish rock stars or pieces of art. We always wanted to be one of those posters on a child's wall that had so much imagination locked into it, a kind of invitation that pushes you over the edge into dream world. With this record, it's time to take that next step."
Recorded in Hawaii and Los Angeles, Two Vines is co-produced by Empire Of The Sun and Peter Mayes (Sia, The Killers, Mika), alongside long-term collaborator, Donnie Sloan (Midnight To Monaco). It also sees the creative circle expanding with esteemed pianist/arranger Henry Hey and bassist Tim Lefebvre, from David Bowie's Blackstar band, featured heavily on the album. Factor in Wendy Melvoin from Prince's Revolution, as well as Fleetwood Mac's genius guitarist/vocalist Lindsey Buckingham, and the Empire's rainbow has never been so vast and colorful.
"Going to Hawaii to record was the best idea," says Luke Steele of sessions at Honolulu's Avex Studios - where Kanye West recorded 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. "That was the catalyst for me. I'd spend the morning surfing, then roll in and make music into the night."1. Before
