MAGIC SHOPPE - DOPPELGANGER
Based in Boston and inspired by The Velvet Underground, My Bloody Valentine and other drone-laden, feedback-and-fuzz loving bands, Magic Shoppe have offered up their own heady concoction of dark, dreamy, shoegaze psychedelia on four EPs and four full-length albums over the past eight years, including 2019's Circles LP. Band members Josiah Webb (vocals, lead guitar), Stevie Moonboots (bass), Dave Mulvaney (drums, and Richie Gibson (rhythm guitar) will be launching a European tour in early 2020, showcasing their spellbinding live dynamic while immersed in a triptastic swirl of liquid lights.

SACRED ORANGE - MISTER OPEL
On hypnotic orange vinyl (hence the higher price)! A psychedelic supergroup composed of members of Electric Looking Glass, Triptides, Dream Phases, Frankie and the Witch Fingers and more, Sacred Orange is the brainchild of former Creation Factory guitarist Neil Soiland. With influences as diverse as One In A Million, The Beatles, Les Fleur de Lys, Graham Gouldman, The Beach Boys, Tommy Roe and Satanic Majesties-era Rolling Stones, the Sacred Orange project epitomizes not only the mind-blowing music that defined psychedelia's golden age, but the camaraderie and shared inspiration that brought it to life. Intended solely as a studio project, over 60 separate tracks were recorded for "Mister Opel" alone. Months in the making, the three songs that constitute the Sacred Orange EP serve as the magnum opus of the now-legendary project, in which nearly every denizen of the L.A. psych scene was seemingly somehow involved.

SMALL BREED, THE - AN ELDERFLOWER PARLIAMENT
A self-described "small herd of musicians who produce vibrant melodies" with a lush variation of harmonies and instruments, The Small Breed find inspiration in the flower-bathed landscape of the southern Dutch countryside where they were born and bred. With surprising instrumentation and sounds, the five-piece band charts an original path influenced by the classic psychedelic pop bands and albums they love best. Think of The Beatles sharing a special pot of elderflower tea with The Pink Floyd, The Pretty Things and future members of The Millennium, circa 1967, and you may catch a fleeting glimpse of where things are going.

MINNESOTA VOODOO MEN - VOODOO STOMP
THE MINNESOTA VOODOO MEN formed in 1998 in Tachikawa near Fussa, the capital of garage rock/group sound in Japan. They have since not only developed a unique and absolutely fantastic lofi-garage-surf-beat-sound but also built their infamous reputation as a mindblowing live-act while touring throughout Japan as well as all over Europe displaying crazy yet stylish Japanese "Merseybeatle" Ringo, wild drummer Pete and frantic guitarist Fabian playing his guitar virtuosically while hanging upside-down from the ceiling. After their several first releases on Japanese labels and their LPs ("s/t" and "Shake Your Mind") and lastly their 45 ("Don't Come Around") on Soundflat Records, this brand new 7" "Voodoo Stomp" is their first release since 2012 and it was definitely worth the wait! The title-song "Voodoo Stomp" is an extremely catchy, cool 60's-beat-tune while the B-side is a live-recording of "Iikimochi", a slightly calmer ballad. Both songs have Japanese lyrics and of course they have that raw Voodoomen-sound that we all love, containing Ringo's rough voice, a wild guitar and a stomping beat.

T.S.O.L. - WONDERFUL WORLD
Last Hurrah Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of T.S.O.L.'s new 7-inch "Wonderful World?", a limited edition of 500 records available in two color configurations of 250 units each: a multi-colored 'blue earth' version for retailers and a translucent 'purple sky' version for D2C. The 7-inch contains the politically-charged parody "Wonderful World?" - an eloquently orchestrated track with string background, sporting a special lyrical adaption of the original song "What a Wonderful World", made famous by Louis Armstrong in 1967. While the B-side contains the brand new song "Swimming" featuring the band at their blistering hardcore best. Formed in 1979 and hailing from Long Beach, California, T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty) are Southern California's original hardcore punk anti-heroes. The band's 1981 full-length Dance with Me is hailed as a seminal performance of angry, pre-goth hardcore. T.S.O.L.'s current lineup consists of three original members Jack Grisham (vocals), Ron Emory (guitar), and Mike Roche (bass), along with drummer Antonio Hernandez and keyboardist Greg Kuehn (who's been involved with the band since the early '80s). Be sure to check out T.S.O.L. on their current American tour.

BREADMAKERS, THE - THE BREADMAKERS
Wailin' Rhythm'n'Blues ravers THE BREADMAKERS from Melbourne, Australia first formed back in 1989 and brought to us an explosive mixture of Garagerock Revival and rockin' Rhythm'n'Blues. Featuring members of SHUTDOWN 66, THE BO-WEEVILS and THE PURITANS, these boys have long gained cult status in the Garagepunk-scene. Now after a longer break they release their brand new LP on SOUNDFLAT RECORDS. Starting of with the wild tune "Corner Of My Eye", you get drawn to their catchy Garagepunk'n'Roll immediately. Expect a wild guitar, a bluesy harmonica, stomping beat, a screechy organ and some screaming vocals combined with haunting melodies! Except for their version of "Ain't Goin' Nowhere", a heavy 60's Garagefuzz-tune originally by DANNY BURKE AND THE INVADERS and a wild finishing cover of the Aussie garage classic "Moonshine", which is originally by THE MARKSMEN, the album contains only fantastic BREADMAKERS originals that will capture you from beginning to end.

CHANDEEN - MERCURY RETROGRADE
Launched three decades ago, Harald Lwy's enduring German indie-tronic dreamcore project Chandeen is now gearing up for the release of its 10th album, Mercury Retrograde. A carefully paced and deeply satisfying journey, Mercury Retrograde begins in earnest with "Summer's Fling," a persistent, shimmering instrumental track that showcases perennial Chandeen collaborator Florian Walther's intrepid, David Gilmour-channeling space-rock guitar flourishes. "Vanish" follows, weaving acoustic and electric guitars into a romantic, vibey patchwork that becomes a blanket for ominous lyrics and breathy vocals that wouldn't sound out of place escaping the lips of Hope Sandoval on a classic Mazzy Star record. The bittersweet letting go of "I Don't Care if I'm Wasted" continues to blend Mercury Retrograde's disparate synthetic and organic elements, Walther anchoring the tune with some entrancingly melodic runs on his Hfner-style Beatle bass. And toward album's end, semi-spoken manifesto "Cause It's Slow" floats along, propelled by sputtering drums, eventually fading into the cosmos like an astronaut on an ill-fated spacewalk. Mercury Retrograde is an unapologetic downtempo-burner, heavy with the gravity of fate, but at once weightless and sparse enough to allow one's imagination to fill in the blank spaces between notes, making for a highly personalized listen. Each distinct vocalist featured on the album-Chandeen lead singer Julia Beyer, British composer/multi-instrumentalist Holly Henderson, sad-eyed French singer-songwriter KITTY, and 16-year-old German artist Odile-as well as guest songwriter Jennifer Pague, contributed their own lyrics, always keeping Mercury Retrograde's titular winged-messenger traveling east to west in their minds, reckless and unrepentant. The perfectly calibrated soundscapes Lwy and Walther have created to score these star-slathered song-poems are a breathtaking fusion of ghostly psychedelic dreampop and barely tethered indie rock, all shot through with a delicate yet unwavering pop sensibility.

CLEMENT, IAN - SEE ME IN SYNCHRONICITY
Sophomore solo album See Me in Synchronicity by Wallace Vanborn front man Ian Clement. Going into the new year, Ian Clement can breathe a sigh of relief. While Wallace Vanborn's recently released 4th album is garnering high praise from supporters and critics alike, Ian's solo career is also back on track with his second album See Me in Synchronicity slated for a worldwide release on April 24. Ian Clement first made the scene as a solo artist in 2013 with his debut album Drawing Daggers, on which he conjured up a unique and intimate world, warm and moving, and occasionally somber, but always with a silver lining. His deep soothing voice and intriguing style of storytelling demand attention and have led to natural comparisons with the likes of Dan Auerbach, Mark Lanegan, Edward Sharpe, and Bill Withers. See Me In Synchronicity was recorded in 2016 with German producer Ren Tinner, renowned for his work with CAN, Lou Reed, and George Harrison. His less-is-more approach proved to be the ideal formula for Ian's new solo work. To capture the music as organically as possible, everything except the vocals was cut in single live takes at the ICP Studios in Brussels.

LACUNA COIL - HALFLIFE EP
After the success of 'In a Reverie', Lacuna Coil was ready to tour worldwide and subsecuent recordings were demanded by the label at that time. Released in 2000 'Halflife' is a monster of an EP, a band effort in the pinnacle of their own songwriting: a beautiful, solid, well combined and excellently produced collection of songs. They perfectly fit within the concept of the debut length, but they just came later within the songwriting process. A way different direction on artistic and songwriting approach would follow after 'Halflife' but this EP and their second length 'Untouched Memories' both remain as the end of the first musical era for Lacuna Coil. First edition of 350 copies on black vinyl.

LACUNA COIL - LACUNA COIL
Lacuna Coil made their international debut with an stellar introduction by Century Media in 1998, who signed the band in the last leg of the 90's, pushed up by the rising of bands with featured female vocals like The Gathering, which already earned a strong worldwide reputation back in those years. Lacuna Coil always lay between the Gothic Metal sub-genere with female singer, and all the predominant symphonic metal, so successful a scene at that time. Cristina Scabbia was always like a perfect reclaim for a new growing gothic music scene with a band that performed with 2 main vocalists, but with Cristina performing like the real star singer she has always been and with an 'exotic' background and origin, coming from Italy, within a market dominated by artists all located in central Europe and Scandinavia. 'Lacuna Coil' was the beginning of a successful career lead by Scabbia, when at that time performed like the most important member of the band and probably the catapult to international recognition received within the next albums and years. A humble debut and a historic document with an ever growing vocalist holding a band by herself. First edition of 350x copies on black vinyl.

LIERS IN WAIT - SPIRITUALLY UNCONTROLED ART
Back in the early 90s, most of Sweden's death metal bands had yet to truly break out, with the exception of Entombed and a handful of others getting decent signings (Grave, Dismember, Unleashed). Not sure we can classify Liers in Wait as a 'super' group due to the fact that its members' constituent bands were not yet massive at the time, but in retrospect, the enormous talent that went into this sole EP recording would classify it in that category. The material actually carried a huge influence from faster USDM bands like Morbid Angel, Deicide and Malevolent Creation, spiced up with some frenetic, cosmic and philosophical atmosphere, lyrics rooted deeply in the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. Spiritually Controlled Art is only 17 minutes long but is a fine example of how bands were taking the pure death metal strains from both shores and twisting them into novel formulas. The mix of cosmic, cerebral horror and violent, proficient death metal might not seem so novel anymore, but Liers in Wait were one of the first to make it stick, albeit briefly. This effort is a good leap short of legendary, but its qualities yearn to be experienced by anyone seeking those dimly glowing gems of 90s potential. First edition of 350 copies on black vinyl (5 tracks on side A, side B is an etching).

PEDALJETS, THE - TWIST THE LENS
Kansas City jangle-pop/rock & roll band The Pedaljets are gearing up for the release of their new LP, Twist The Lens, out February 14th. Since announcing the record, the band has been featured at numerous media outlets including PopMatters, Glide Magazine, Mystic Sons & most recently American Songwriter who shared their latest single "Uncounted Heads," calling it, "The work of a band that clearly has put in the work long enough to be able to craft a song that drives along with a comfortable and soothing energy, kind of like a bear hug." Their music has received critical acclaim from countless publications, including The A.V. Club, Diffuser.FM, Uncut Magazine, Blurt Magazine, The Big Takeover, and the notoriously critical CREEM Magazine. Twist The Lens continues to build upon the legacy the Pedaljets have created over the past three decades, showcasing the comfort and maturity of their years spent performing together as well as the electric fervor that has permeated their music since the beginning.

SUNFLOWERS - ENDLESS VOYAGE
Sunflowers return with their third LP, 'Endless Voyage'. A conceptual scifi record about the end of the world, the rise of the machine, doubt about one's individuality and the acceptance of chaos. Listening to it, the classic psych punk, noisy pop sound that the band has been preaching has been polished and tamed (to some degree) with a fresh air of exploration into their sound. A ping pong game between pulsing drums, bouncy bass, reverberated echoes of vocals and loud schizophrenic guitars meet a mellower, smoothed electronic compositions that go deep into the band's musical knowledge. Truly a rollercoaster of a record, 'Endless Voyage' runs smoothly through its 40 minutes, pulling you in and out of a trance you forget your'e in. Then morning comes and you realise you've been fully gripped by it, leaving a howling hiss in your ears and your soul.

ULVEBLOD - OMNIA MORS AEQUAT
Since 2006, Vitriol and M. have been crafting their own, unique version of black metal as Nihill. Internationally recognised as one of the leading bands to combine old school influences with avant-garde experimentation and an almost infuriating, hypnotic repetition. With the passing of singer and founding member M., the cult of Nihill has come to a grinding halt. Main guitarist and producer Vitriol has now created a new vessel for the void, called Ulveblod. The band is using some of the same session players as Nihill did, but with tracks that have all last shreds of sanity and comprehension stripped away. Ulveblod is pure, chaotic channeling of an inner anger and a feeling of senselessness, set to music. The bands' first album 'Omnia Mors Aequat' will be released simultaneously with their debut show on the acclaimed Roadburn Festival 2020, where it will be played integrally and set to a tailor made video accompagnement which will also be executed live... This unique show is surely one of those 'not to be missed' slots on an already stellar line-up! For fans of: Nihill, Gnaw Their Tongues, Teitanblood, Revenge, Nekrasov...

To capture the music as organically as possible, everything except the vocals was cut in single live takes at the ICP Studios in Brussels.

Kansas City jangle-pop/rock & roll band The Pedaljets are gearing up for the release of their new LP, Twist The Lens, out February 14th. Since announcing the record, the band has been featured at numerous media outlets including PopMatters, Glide Magazine, Mystic Sons & most recently American Songwriter who shared their latest single "Uncounted Heads," calling it, "The work of a band that clearly has put in the work long enough to be able to craft a song that drives along with a comfortable and soothing energy, kind of like a bear hug." Their music has received critical acclaim from countless publications, including The A.V. Club, Diffuser.FM, Uncut Magazine, Blurt Magazine, The Big Takeover, and the notoriously critical CREEM Magazine. Twist The Lens continues to build upon the legacy the Pedaljets have created over the past three decades, showcasing the comfort and maturity of their years spent performing together as well as the electric fervor that has permeated their music since the beginning.

ULVEBLOD - OMNIA MORS AEQUAT
Since 2006, Vitriol and M. have been crafting their own, unique version of black metal as Nihill. Internationally recognised as one of the leading bands to combine old school influences with avant-garde experimentation and an almost infuriating, hypnotic repetition. With the passing of singer and founding member M., the cult of Nihill has come to a grinding halt. Main guitarist and producer Vitriol has now created a new vessel for the void, called Ulveblod. The band is using some of the same session players as Nihill did, but with tracks that have all last shreds of sanity and comprehension stripped away. Ulveblod is pure, chaotic channeling of an inner anger and a feeling of senselessness, set to music. The bands' first album 'Omnia Mors Aequat' will be released simultaneously with their debut show on the acclaimed Roadburn Festival 2020, where it will be played integrally and set to a tailor made video accompagnement which will also be executed live... This unique show is surely one of those 'not to be missed' slots on an already stellar line-up! For fans of: Nihill, Gnaw Their Tongues, Teitanblood, Revenge, Nekrasov...

WEEN - LA CUCARACHA (180 GR BROWN)
Here comes the ultimate Ween "La Cucaracha" re-issue on audiophile 180 gram brown vinyl + free compact disc. Here is what Dean Ween had to say about the last studio album from the band for now: "The album kicks ass, I'm not really sure what else to say. There's not a wasted minute of music on there. We wrote and recorded a ton of material before we whittled it down to its present state. We recorded the La Cucaracha to two inch 24 track tape and it sounds amazing." As always, it was produced and mixed by Andrew Weiss.

SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS - BEASTS OF BURGUNDY
Wanderers, boogiers, strangers - unite! The end is nigh and the beginning is in sight. These are troubled times, easy to get you down. But not if you seek refuge in loftier sounds! This year has the Squirrel Nut Zippers roaming the lands, warding off evil, telling sweet lies, and making a joyful racket on wax and on wheels. Twelve original new songs from the mind of Jimbo Mathus and the Squirrel Nut Zippers. This is the band's first studio album in 18 years. A return to form... a revival not a reunion.
