Black Keys
Turn Blue

The Black Keys’ Turn Blue was produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, and features 11 tracks including the first single, “Fever.” Of the new album, the band says Turn Blue could refer to: A: Suffocation, B: Sadness, C: Numbness from extreme cold, D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi, or E: All of the above.  
Circulatory System
Mosaics Within Mosaics
(Secretly Canadian)

Culled together in the style in which Will Cullen Hart (Olivia Tremor Control) has always worked, using recordings from his copious back catalog of home recordings spanning from 12 years ago to now. Masterfully assembled by Derek Almstead (Faster Circuits) with overdubs by John Fernandes (OTC), Heather McIntosh (The Instruments), AJ Griffin (Laminated Cat), Peter Erchick (OTC), Jeff Mangum and Jeremy Barnes (Neutral Milk Hotel).  
Del Ray, Lana

The third full-length release for the pop singer-songwriter was produced by Dan Auerbach and recorded live with a seven-piece band. Available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe adds three bonus tracks. “Repeated listens reveal nuances, like the acoustic guitar bristling beneath the blues-rock verses of ‘Sad Girl’ and the male backing vocals layering the final chorus of ‘Brooklyn Baby,’ but the album's steadfast narcotic tempo and Del Rey's languid delivery, doused in shoegaze-style reverb throughout, conjure a hazy picture of the singer swaying wearily in some sweltering sweat-lodge of a dive in the deep South.” – Slant Magazine  
Earthless Meets Heavy Blanket
In A Dutch Haze
(Outter Battery)

After an impromptu heavy psych jam at SXSW left the crowd stunned and breathless, J Mascis and Earthless were asked to play the main stage of the Roadburn Festival in Holland. When Earthless guitarist Isaiah Mitchell had to back out at the last minute, Graham Clise from Heavy Blanket and Witch stepped in on second guitar. What you'll find here is a recording of that set, almost a full hour of some of the most mind bending heavy psych imaginable.  
First Aid Kit
Stay Gold

“Klara and Johanna Söderberg, the Swedish sisters who make up the duo First Aid Kit, learned to love American-heartland alt-roots music when they first heard Bright Eyes. In making their new album Stay Gold, the duo went to the source, traveling to Omaha and working with Bright Eyes producer and Monsters Of Folk member Mike Mogis. (They also sing backup on Conor Oberst’s new album Upside Down Mountain.)” – Stereogum  
Kozelek, Mark
Live At Biko
(Caldo Verde)

14 tracks recorded live at Biko in Milan, Italy, April 6, 2014. The release features more than half of the songs on Benji plus other favorites like Admiral Fell Promises’ “Ålesund” and a trio of tracks from Perils from the Sea, Kozelek’s collaboration with The Album Leaf’s Jimmy Lavalle.  
Leithauser, Hamilton
Black Hours

Inaugurating a new chapter in an already remarkable career as the frontman for The Walkmen, Black Hours the solo debut full length from Hamilton Leithauser. The album brings him full circle and then some, from lonely midwinter piano-and-vocals sessions, to a loud, live rock & roll group and back again. Featuring Leithauser with collaborators including Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Paul Maroon (The Walkmen), Morgan Henderson (Fleet Foxes), Richard Swift (The Shins/solo), and Amber Coffman (Dirty Projectors), Black Hours showcases Leithauser at his most passionate, personal and free.  
Lonesome Shack
More Primitive

More Primitive finds Seattle’s Lonesome Shack exploring the depths of boogie and country blues. The trio’s sound is raw and immediate with fingerpicked guitar lines, soulful crooning and big danceable grooves. Ben Todd’s introspective lyrics take the American blues tradition to a new level, examining personal history, loss of friends, and a burning desire to get to the primitive core of life.  
Miniature Tigers
Cruel Runnings

The sound is important but nothing is more important than the feeling of the sound. When Charlie Brand (vocals/guitar) was writing the newest Miniature Tigers record, he looked to the sum of his musical influences for inspiration. “I wanted to make something like Weezer’s Blue Album— something with that feeling that could connect with people.”  
Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Days Of Abandon

The Brooklyn indie pop stalwarts present their eagerly anticipated third LP after two critically acclaimed records that demonstrated the group's ability to shift musical registers from bedroom pop daydreams to Alternative Nation anthems.  
Parquet Courts
Sunbathing Animal
(What's Your Rupture)

To be sure, Sunbathing Animal isn't a record about hopelessness, as any sort of incarceration implies an understanding of freedom and peace of mind. Fleeting moments of bliss are also captured in its grooves, and extended at length as if to preserve them. Pointed articulations of these ideas are heard as schizoid blues rants, shrill guitar leads, purposefully lengthy repetition and controlled explosions, reaching their peak on the blistering title track.  
People Get Ready

People Get Ready’s second album Physiques ramps up the band’s fierce, joyful, heedless interplay; its love of big pop and trancelike slow jams and songs that fall somewhere in-between; and, above all, its devotion to pleasure. Featuring Steven Reker (Stinkweeds emeritus, Reindeer Tiger Team), Luke Fasano (ex-Yeasayer), James Rickman (ex-Lizzie Trulie, ex-Slow Gherkin), and Jen Goma (A Sunny Day In Glasgow).  

tUnE-yArDs' third album sees her enlist producers to help her achieve new heights. Contributions from Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A.) enhance tUnE-yArDs' signature sound. A record that could only have been made by its creator, at heart it's heavy yet still retains a sense of fun.  
White, Jack
(Third Man)

Jack White’s new album is most notable for the vinyl version, which boasts the following: Two vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels, one hidden track plays at 78 RPM and one plays at 45 RPM, making it a “three-speed” record; Side A plays from the inside to the outside of the disc; Dual-groove technology (the record plays an electric or acoustic intro for "Just One Drink" depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song); Matte finish on Side B, gives the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record; Both sides end with locked grooves; Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format; Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record; Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering; Features a different running order from the CD/digital version.
