Nirvana’s IN UTERO turns 30! An album that has sold more than 9 million copies worldwide, is celebrated with a multi-format collection: 8LP Super Deluxe, 5CD Super Deluxe, 2CD Deluxe Edition, 1LP + 10-inch
From the opening notes of “Serve The Servants” to the closing & hypnotic “All Apologies” – IN UTERO was at first naturally scrutinized for not sounding like NEVERMIND – with Steve Albini at the helm it was never intended to – the album is as David Fricke/Rolling Stone put it… “brilliant, corrosive, enraged and thoughtful – most of them all at once.”
Boasting two Super Deluxe Editions – first an 8LP set, second a 5CD set that will all have identical audio content featuring 72 total tracks with 53 tracks being unreleased. All three sets will showcase the album and 5 bonus tracks & b-sides all newly remastered from the original analog stereo tapes, 2 full concerts from Los Angeles 1993 and Seattle 1994, and 6 bonus live tracks from Rome, Springfield and New York. All live tracks were source-separated from stereo soundboard tapes and reconstructed by legendary Seattle producer/engineer Jack Endino.
The two physical Super Deluxes will also feature a removable front-cover acrylic panel with the album cover’s iconic Angel printed on it; a 48-page hardcover book with unreleased photos; a 20-page newly designed fanzine; an LA tour poster litho by renowned hot rod artist Coop; replicas of the 1993 record store promo Angel mobile, 3 gig flyers, 2 ticket stubs for LA & Seattle shows, an All-Access tour laminate & 4 uniquely shaped cloth sticky tour backstage passes (Press, Photo, After Show, Local Crew).
The 2CD Deluxe Edition will feature the newly remastered album on CD 1 and 14 unreleased live tracks from the In Utero 1993/1994 tour on CD 2. The 14 live tracks come from shows in Los Angeles, California; Springfield, Massachusetts; Rome, Italy; New York and their second-to-last hometown gig in Seattle, Washington. Every song on In Utero is represented with a live performance plus two bonus performances of the band covering The Vaselines’ “Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For A Sunbeam” and the David Bowie classic “The Man Who Sold The World.” Newly expanded artwork with unreleased photos are showcased in a 6-panel softpak and 20-page booklet.
The 1LP + 10-inch 180-gram vinyl edition offers fans the album newly remastered from 96kHz 24-bit transfers of the original stereo analog tapes and a bonus 10-inch of the newly remastered bonus tracks “Gallons Of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through The Strip” (international album bonus track), “Marigold” (B-side written & recorded by Dave Grohl), “Sappy” (from No Alternative compilation), “Moist Vagina” (B-side) and “I Hate Myself And Want To Die” (from The Beavis & Butthead Experience soundtrack). Newly expanded into a premium tip-on gatefold jacket with red foil details.
The surprise companion to The National’s April release First Two Pages of Frankenstein, Laugh Track is the band’s most freewheeling, all-hands-on-deck album in years. If Frankenstein represented a rebuilding of trust between group members after 20+ years together, the vibrant, exploratory Laugh Track is both the product of that faith and a new statement of intent. Reveling in the license to radically upend its creative process, The National honed most of this material in live performances on tour, and captured those invigorated versions in impromptu sessions at producer Tucker Martine’s Portland studio. Two nights later in Vancouver, the nearly eight-minute album closer “Smoke Detector” was recorded during soundcheck, completing a body of work bristling with spontaneity and vintage rock energy that makes a perfect complement to the songs found on its more introspective predecessor.
The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th. To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long! Pre-order 1989 (Taylor’s Version) now.

New Order are delighted to announce a remastered set of formats of Substance 1987, released via Warner on November 10th.
Over the course of his career, Sufjan Stevens has blurred distinctions between the major and the minor, between the details that color our existence and the big events that frame our lives. He has turned historical footnotes of States into kaleidoscopic pop, and rendered the immeasurable grief of loss with intimacy and grace.
His new album Javelin—Sufjan’s first solo album of songs since 2020’s The Ascension and his first in full solo singer-songwriter mode since 2015’s Carrie & Lowell—bridges all these approaches. Sufjan uses the quietness of a solitary confession to ask universal questions in songs we can share communally. Accompanying the CD and LP formats of the album is a 48-page book of art and essays. With a series of meticulous collages, cut-up catalog fantasies, puff-paint word clouds, and iterative color fields, Sufjan builds order from seeming chaos and vice versa. And toward the middle of it all are 10 short essays by Sufjan, another window into the process that informed Javelin.
Catch A Fire, the fifth studio album by Bob Marley & The Wailers, was included in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. This 50th Anniversary Edition includes the studio album (LP1), Live at the Paris Theatre in London – previously only ever bootlegged (LP2), a bonus disc of alternate, extended and instrumental Jamaican tracks (LP3), plus a 12” single featuring 3 live tracks from the Sundown Theatre in Edmonton, with an etched image on the reverse side.

Last November in London, Cat Power took the stage at Royal Albert Hall and delivered a song-for-song recreation of one of the most fabled and transformative live sets of all time. Held at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in May 1966—but long known as the “Royal Albert Hall Concert” due to a mislabeled bootleg—the original performance saw Bob Dylan switching from acoustic to electric midway through the show, drawing ire from an audience of folk purists and forever altering the course of rock-and-roll. In her own rendition of that historic night, the artist otherwise known as Chan Marshall inhabited each song with equal parts conviction and grace and a palpable sense of protectiveness, ultimately transposing the anarchic tension of Dylan’s set with a warm and luminous joy. Now captured on the live album Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert, Marshall’s spellbinding performance both lovingly honors her hero’s imprint on history and brings a stunning new vitality to many of his most revered songs.

The indie exclusive of STONE LP is a ruby red LP housed in a heavyweight printed inner sleeve inside of a spot UV gatefold jacket with black flood and a four-panel lyric booklet. All artwork by John Dyer Baizley. Produced by Baroness, mixed by Joe Barresi, mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering. Only available at independent record stores.
Grammy-award nominated heavy rock outfit Baroness mark their much-anticipated return with new album, STONE. Their sixth record overall and third released via Abraxan Hymns, STONE finds the Philadelphia-based quartet of John Baizley (guitars/vocals/illustration), Gina Gleason (guitars), Nick Jost (bass), and Sebastian Thomson (drums) streamlining the momentous multi-genre vocabulary of its critically-acclaimed predecessor Gold & Grey (2019). This is still very much Baroness—just refocused for efficiency and rethought as a consequence of stability. STONE’s most prominent tracks, "Last Word,” “Beneath the Rose,” “Shine,” and “Anodyne," reflect thoughtfully, groove deeply, and refract tumult effortlessly. They, of course, rock.

Isbell offers confessions. reflections. and promises that contront and make communion with those who have come before and remain wIth us still.

Hitchock and Herrmann, Spielberg and Williams, Zemeckis and Silvestri, Burton and Elfman, Fellini and Rota. There’s a certain kind of magic that happens when a director and composer work together for an extended period; their imaginations are fuelled by an artistic sensibility which becomes, inevitably, entwined. Such deep understanding between two artists has proffered memorable, even legendary, cinemusical experiences. But there’s another of these partnerships we must honour and mention in the same breath, that of director Hayao Miyazaki and composer Joe Hisaishi.
everything is alive, Slowdive’s 5th record, is exactly what the title suggests: an exploration into the shimmering nature of life and the universal touch points within it.
While there are parts of this record that could sit neatly next to the atmospheric quality of 1995’s Pygmalion; everything is alive also manages to break down the boundaries of what’s come before it. Spanning psychedelic soundscapes, pulsating 80’s electronic elements and John Cale inspired journeys, the album lands immediately as something made for 2023 and beyond.
For a genre that is often thought of as divisive, and often warrants introspection, here Slowdive show their craft as the masters of it by pushing it outwards, beyond the singular; the end result being a record which feels as emotional and cathartic as it is hopeful.

Taylor Swift -"Speak Now (Taylor's Version) - 3 LP - Taylor Swift's 2010 album "Speak Now" is being re-released on July 7 as "Speak Now (Taylor's Version)." The album will be released as a 3-LP vinyl - [Orchid Marbled 3 LP]
My favorite moments in the human experience are ones that you don’t even realize have started, but feel so deeply when you realize they’ve ended. I refer to these as ‘Ultrapure’ moments. This album was my humble, unqualified, and earnest as hell attempt at sitting in those feelings until they had no choice but to burst out of my head. These songs are about a type of pain I hate and love, but mostly have a deep appreciation for.

Boy Named Banjo - Dusk - Mercury Nashville
Dusk, Boy Named Banjo’s exhilarating new album, is indeed an electrifying dose of lightning in a bottle, one that explores the full sonic and emotional spectrum of the band’s rich, eclectic sound, from late-night, feel-good, fall-in-love party anthems to stripped-down, introspective meditations on loneliness, loss, and letting go. The writing is keen and incisive here, artfully grappling with lust and longing, hope and heartbreak, regret and redemption, and the Nashville five-piece’s performances are nothing short of exhilarating, blurring the lines between Music Row and Laurel Canyon with lush harmonies and bold, cinematic arrangements.
Steven Wilson - The Harmony Codex - Spinefarm
