WAVVES - You're Welcome - Ghost Ramp
Via Ghostramp, Williams isn't just putting out Wavves' new record, he's signing other local garage bands, funding his tours, schooling DIY artists in how to create and distribute merchandise in a way that supports your career and provides future security where nobody else can. As for Warners, that cash advance helped pay for this store. The rest came from the money Wavves made off merch during 2016's Summer Is Forever II Tour with Best Coast and Cherry Glazerr. “I thought Ghostramp would be a hobby, doing 7-inches here and there. But now it's a legitimate business,” says Williams. “The thing is I'm not just interested in making music for Wavves. I'm too ADD. Being an entrepreneur, being hands-on isn’t just smart, it’s necessary. Your art is everything you do, every choice you make. I was able to build my own thing, own it and control it all 100%. If I want to do something now I don’t ask anyone. I just fucking do it – that's priceless.” Nathan Williams never went away, but now he's made sure he's here to stay far longer. And for that, girls and boys, You're Welcome.

FAITH EVANS & THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G. - The King & I - Rhino
The King & I is a duets album that will take listeners through a unique journey of Faith and Biggie's relationship. The album features un-released Biggie vocals and is packed with original productions by DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Stevie J, Salaam Remi, Chucky Thompson, Puff Daddy and more. The album also features guest artist Lil Cease, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch (founders of The L.O.X. hip hop group), 112, and a first time collaboration with legendary hip hop artist Lil Kim. The narrative of The King & I is compelling, compassionate, and offers a very personal glimpse into the love life of two of the biggest Hip Hop & R&B artists of all time.

LINKIN PARK - One More Light - Warner Bros
One More Light is a moment in time. It’s built on personal stories, sweat-stained and reeling from injuries—the product of six voices, each coming clean about their lives and struggles, as if it were the first time. We get an unobstructed view into what makes the band tick as people, fathers, husbands, musicians, and friends.

PAPA ROACH - Crooked Teeth

PAPA ROACH - Crooked TeethPAPA ROACH - Crooked Teeth - Eleven Seven MusicPAPA ROACH - Crooked Teeth
The band wrote and recorded the Crooked Teeth album in North Hollywood, Calif., with the help of production team Nicholas “Ras” Furlong and Colin Brittain. Jason Evigan also lent his producing talents to a track on the album called “Born for Greatness.” “The first time we met up with RAS and Colin, they said that Infest was on constant rotation when they were growing up and they wanted to bring back some of that fire,” says Jacoby Shaddix. Adds Furlong, “The whole idea was to take the classic elements of Papa Roach that everyone loved and revamp them into a modern version of the sound through the creative process, and we ended up with a bold, courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach.”

MATISYAHU - Undercurrent

MATISYAHU - UndercurrentMATISYAHU - Undercurrent - Fallen Sparks Rec.MATISYAHU - Undercurrent
Singer-songwriter Matisyahu has been on a journey inward for more than a decade. The journey has been private and public. The journey has at times been explicitly external, even while being driven by internal change. Now, nearly thirteen years after the release of his first studio record, Matisyahu and his band have done something unmatched in his past repertoire; they have crafted that journey into a musically thematic eight-song-movement.

THE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary EditionTHE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary Edition - CapitolTHE BEATLES - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Anniversary Edition
It was 50 years ago when The Beatles' John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music's most universally acclaimed album. The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo, sourced directly from the four-track masters at Abbey Road Studios in London, and guided by the original, Beatles-preferred mono mix produced by his father, George Martin. This expanded 2CD package features the new stereo album mix on the first CD and adds a second CD of 18 tracks, including previously unreleased alternate takes of each of the album's 13 songs, newly mixed in stereo and sequenced in the same order as the album. The second CD also includes a new stereo mix and a previously unreleased instrumental take of 'Penny Lane,' and the 2015 stereo mix and two previously unreleased alternate takes of 'Strawberry Fields Forever.' The Anniversary Editions are also available as a Single CD, 2LP and Super Deluxe Edition Box Set.

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The Street

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The StreetJUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The Street - New West RecordsJUSTIN TOWNES EARLE - Kids In The Street
Kids In The Street is the 7th and latest album from American roots troubadour, Justin Townes Earle. After marrying, moving to various corners of the country and continuous touring with both full band and solo, Earle made time to reflect on the past few years and find new clarity. With Kids In The Street, he made a conscious decision to work with a producer for the first time in his now decade-long career. Earle made the trip to Omaha, Nebraska to work with Mike Mogis (First Aid Kit, M.Ward, Connor Oberst) at ARC Studios. Together, they hand picked musicians to create a new sound and environment for the songs that speaks to Justin’s roots, musically and personally. This creative collaboration, paired with Justin’s longtime guitarist Paul Niehaus, has resulted in an album that takes a big step forward. Kids In The Street is scheduled for release on May 26, 2017.

New Release Round-Up 05-12-17

New Releases May 12 2017

PAUL WELLER - A Kind Revolution - WB / Parlophone
Work began on the new record immediately after finishing 2015's 'Saturns Pattern' and once again features the full spectrum of Paul Weller's influences, from rock to R&B, soul to jazz, and funk to folk. Along with Weller's touring band faithful Andy Crofts, Ben Gordelier, Steve Cradock and Steve Pilgrim, A Kind Revolution features appearances from soul legends PP Arnold and Madeleine Bell, Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt, The Strypes' guitarist Josh McClorey and none other than Boy George. It was recorded at Weller's Black Barn Studios HQ and produced and arranged by Jan 'Stan' Kybert and Weller himself.


HARRY STYLES - Harry Styles - Sony
Harry Styles, the highly anticipated self-titled debut album from the global superstar. The ten track album features the lead single "Sign of the Times," which topped the charts in over 80 countries upon its release day. "Sign of the Times" was produced by Jeff Bhasker and co-written by Styles, with additional production by Alex Salibian and Tyler Johnson. The album is available in three physical formats: a LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER BOOK version of the CD featuring 32 pages of exclusive images from the recording process, a standard package CD, and a vinyl LP version in a gatefold jacket along with Digital.

DREAMCAR - Dreamcar - Sony
In the summer of 2014, No Doubt's Tony Kanal [bass], Tom Dumont [guitar], and Adrian Young [drums] and singer Davey Havok [AFI, Blakq Audio] began writing and demoing music together. Without telling a soul outside of their significant others, the four musicians clandestinely moved into a cramped downtown Los Angeles rehearsal spot and revved up what would become Dreamcar. The result of this collaboration is their self-titled debut album, Dreamcar, produced by Tim Pagnotta [Neon Trees], with whom the band found a kindred spirit.

ZAC BROWN BAND - Welcome Home - Atlantic
GRAMMY-Award winning Zac Brown Band release Welcome Home, the band's new album and their first release on Southern Ground / Elektra Records. Produced by GRAMMY-Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and In The Arena Productions, and recorded at Southern Ground Nashville studio, ‘WELCOME HOME' is what the band calls not only a return to their roots, but also a return to 'The Foundation,' the band's debut album that is now 5X platinum. The theme of reflection is echoed throughout the 10-track album. Songs range from the first single, "My Old Man," which paints a poignant picture of the ever-changing relationship between fathers and sons to "Two Places at One Time," about juggling the conflict between life on the road and the comforts of home, and "Roots," which honors the band's journey from their humble beginnings. In addition, the band continues their tradition of recording a cover song they all admire, this time with John Prine's "All The Best." "This is the most personal album we've ever done and we're very proud of it," said Brown. "Welcome Home."

PARAMORE - After Laughter - Fueled By Ramen
After Laughter was recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio B - Paramore's first time recording in their own beloved hometown. The album is produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Paramore's own Taylor York. "AFTER LAUGHTER" also marks the return of original member Zac Farro back to the band.

Jon Stickley Trio Releases Maybe Believe on May 12, 2017

Produced by Dave King (The Bad Plus) at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville NC

"Thoughtful & energetic" --Bryan Sutton

Watch a behind-the-scenes video from the recording session → www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccQB75r3Vww

ASHEVILLE --  Riding the wave of their critically acclaimed 2015 album, Lost at Last, Jon Stickley Trio independently releases their 3rd full length album, Maybe Believe, on May 12, 2017. Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums.

“The latest record from the Jon Stickley Trio flexes new and strong muscles, utilizing more progressive structures and deeper pockets than ever before,” says Producer Dave King (Of The Bad Plus). “All the while, the group retains its place as a modern-thinking acoustic ensemble with one foot in tradition and the other in a bluegrass honored future that allows for the avant garde, punk, and be bop to mix in freely and tastefully.”

Record Store Day 2017

Record Store Day 2017

“I’m thankful that some people still focus on albums and physical copies,” said Steve Martin Founder of Ignition Music Garage. “The story of vinyl records is one of the few bright spots in a rapidly changing music business. I believe we need to make a statement that artists, record labels, producers, engineers, concert venues and record stores are valuable contributors to the quality of our lives. Something powerful happens when we listen in the air, together.”

(from RSD Website) This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.

Ignition will once again be featuring; Food, Goshen Brewing Beer, Limited Edition Vinyl and Live music. Last year over 500 people gathered downtown to celebrate Record Store Day with us. We have hundreds of RSD titles ordered as well as special record label deals. “It is hard to believe that the vinyl renaissance led by Record Store Day is only 10 years old, we’re proud to have been here for the majority of them.”

“This year we are encouraging people to bring their treasured collectors’ albums to spin on 91.1 The Globe during their live broadcast. There are some very significant recordings that only surfaced for Record Store Days past, it’s time to get them out and give them a spin with all your friends.”

We decided to close the day with a national touring act on our stage and are honored to have two; Penny & Sparrow and Lowland Hum. Penny & Sparrow are on Single Lock / Thirty Tigers. John Paul White (Civil Wars) and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) produced their record, “Let a Lover Drown You”.

Check out the single “Finery” to hear their finely meshed voices over a great lyric.

9:45 AM – Members admitted first. Tickets are handed out in the order of those in line.

10:00 AM – Doors open preview – customers sent to special section 5 at a time.

10:00 – 3:00 - Globe In-Store Remote – Spinning RSD titles, yours and ours.

Record Store Day - The Organization behind the magic day.

Record Store Day - The Organization behind the magic day.

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.

This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, DJs spinning records,  and on and on. In 2008 a small list of titles was released on Record Store Day and that list has grown to include artists and labels both large and small, in every genre and price point. In 2015, 60% of the Record Store Day Official Release List came from independent labels and distributors. The list continues to include a wide range of artists, covering the diverse taste of record stores and their customers.

On the first Record Store Day, Metallica spent hours at Rasputin Music in San Francisco meeting their fans and now each year hundreds of artists, internationally famous and from the block, flock to record stores around the world for performances, signings, meet and greets and to fill their own shopping bags with music. In 2009, Jesse "Boots Electric" Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal) declared himself the "Record Store Day Ambassador" as a way of shouting out how important the stores were to artists and since then Joshua Homme (Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures, Queens of the Stone Age), Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Jack White, Chuck D and Dave Grohl have worn the ceremonial sash. For 2016, that sash is based to Metallica, as a way to officially mark their involvement with Record Store Day and support of independent record stores. 

Throughout its nine years, cities across the United States, including New York City, Los Angeles, Boise, Charleston and Las Vegas have declared Record Store Day an official holiday. In 2013, Co-Founder Michael Kurtz was made a Chevalier of the Ordre Des Arts et Des Letters in France, honoring Record Store Day's contribution to the cultural and artistic life of the French people. That same year, the organizers of Record Store Day accepted the Independent Spirit Award from NARM (now the Music Biz Association). In 2015, Record Store Day was named the Marketplace Ally of the Year by A2IM, an organization of independent music labels. 

While there’s only one Record Store Day a year, the organization works with both independent and and major labels throughout the year to create contests, special releases and promotions in order to spotlight the benefits of supporting these independent, locally owned stores with music purchases throughout the year.   In 2010, Record Store Day coodinated its first Black Friday event, which gives record stores exclusive releases as part of the attempt to redirect the focus of the biggest shopping day of the year to the desirable, special things to be found at local stores.

Record Store Day is currently managed by Michael Kurtz and Carrie Colliton, in coordination with Michael Bunnell and Eric Levin. Folks wanting to contact Record Store Day are encouraged to email us at information@recordstoreday.com

Record Store Day APR 22 10:00 AM

Record Store Day APR 22 10:00 AM

A message from the folks at Record Store Day   RSD 17 Releases 

Ten years ago, we celebrated the first Record Store Day and since then we've consistently tried to keep our promotion of your stores fresh and give you, customers and the press new things to talk about. Our Black Friday event, special single/coupon promotions year-round, Vinyl Tuesday and Indie Exclusive Color Vinyl are all examples of those things and as a way to mark our tenth anniversary, we're launching the Record Store Day Vinyl Club. 

Vinyl subscription services abound these days, and in some ways, that's a great thing: the more invested in physical formats people are, the more they'll look to you as they fill out their collections. But subscription services cut record stores out completely. Our Record Store Day Vinyl Club does not. The releases we put out branded as Record Store Day Vinyl Club will be limited edition (most pressed to order!) and will only be available at your stores at regular intervals throughout the year.  We are working now with artists, managers and labels to choose titles for the Club. These may be special reissues (of classic albums and in some cases limited edition RSD titles), newly created compilations or releases, EPs, full lengths, double albums or box sets. The content will always be curated and approved by a panel of record stores and RSD Vinyl Club titles will be solicited to RSD stores only. These will cover all genres, and you'll have the opportunity to bring in which ever titles you think will work for your stores and customers. (Full disclosure: RSD will also sell a very small number of these titles, and these titles only--not regular Record Store Day or Black Friday titles--on our website, but always at a higher price (plus shipping) than your pricing will be. We are not changing our mission of driving customers into your stores.)

We know what our first three Record Store Day Vinyl Club releases will be:

RSD Vinyl Club Release #1 
FOO FIGHTERS Songs From The Laundry Room  3/31/17
This four song 10" was released for Record Store Day 2015. A very limited number will be released as the first RSD Vinyl Club with a street date of 3/31.  


RSD Vinyl Club Release #2
TELEVISION Live At The Old Waldorf  Street Date TBD
This double LP was released for RSD 2011 on white vinyl. The Record Store Day Vinyl Club release will be a double black vinyl set. This will be solicited by both Think Indie and Alliance shortly.   


RSD Vinyl Club Release #3
THE DOORS  When You're Strange Soundtrack
The soundtrack to this film was released on CD in 2010 and has never been released on vinyl. The RSD Vinyl Club release will be a double black 140g vinyl set. The Record Store Day Vinyl Club release will be a double black vinyl set. This will be solicited by both Think Indie and Alliance shortly.
