DESTROYER - FIVE SPANISH SONGS
On November 26, Destroyer will release Five Spanish Songs, an EP of songs written by Spanish musician Antonio Luque of the band Sr. Chinarro. Produced by JC/DC and recorded at their studio in Vancouver earlier this summer, Five Spanish Songs features musical contributions from Nicolas Bragg, David Carswell, John Collins, Stephen Hamm, and Josh Wells. Dan Bejar writes: It was 2013. The English language seemed spent, despicable, not easily singable. It felt over for English; good for business transactions, but that's about it. The only other language I know is Spanish, and the only Spanish songs I really know are those of Sr. Chinarro, led by Antonio Luque. I've been a decades-long fan of how he conducted his affairs, his strange words, his melodies that have always felt so natural (this is important), his bitter songs about painting the light. Something about them, I knew I could do it...

BUCKNER, RICHARD - BLOOMED (180 GR)
Bloomed is the 1994 debut album from Richard Buckner. The album is remastered and released on CD and 180-gram vinyl. Both formats include a CD containing 11 bonus tracks of radio sessions, live performances, and original recordings of songs that appeared on future releases. Spin described Buckner as "equal parts Bay Area bohemian and dust bowl traditionalist," while Pitchfork wrote, "It's a traditional outsider-country record in the lineage of Townes Van Zandt. Buckner's voice is all honey and oak, his guitar style elaborately twanging, his constant subject matter heartache."

You reach a point in life where the question of how to stay at the top of your game looms; the only real solution being, you change the game. Our Love, the new album from Caribou, is the sound of Dan Snaith doing just that.Our Love is formed around a mixture of digital pop production, hip hop-inspired beats, muted house basslines, and a love of shuffling garage that can be traced all the way back to the time of Start Breaking My Heart, all of which are, of course, filtered through Dan?s own unique perspective.

CLEAN, THE - ANTHOLOGY
Anthology serves as a celebration of The Clean, a band whose influence extends so far beyond their New Zealand home that even if you have never heard of The Clean before, you have surely heard of some of the bands (Pavement, Yo La Tengo, and Superchunk, to name a few) who have been influenced by their unique blend of homemade garage rock, hook-filled melodies, and psychedelic experimentalism. Merge originally released the 2-CD Anthology in 2003, but in celebration of our 25th anniversary, we release this essential collection on quadruple LP.

CLEAN, THE - GETAWAY (2LP+CD)
2001's Getaway maybe best illustrates whatever mercurial, inexplicable musical power animates The Clean. After the band's initial rush of activity between 1978 and 1982, the trio lay dormant until the end of the '80s, when a string of reunion shows inspired the Kilgours and Scott to start recording again. After three well-received albums in the first half of the nineties-1990's Vehicle, 1994's Modern Rock, and 1996's Unknown Country-The Clean disappeared again until the end of the decade, when another tour inspired another record. At one point in the process, Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley were visiting from America, and they ended up on the record too. The rare 2003 album Syd's Pink Wiring System is included with the Getaway reissue, along with the more experimental, piano-driven EP Slush Fund, from the same era. These bonus tracks reinforce the idea of the Getaway-era Clean as especially plugged in, generating inspired and beautiful music almost on instinct.

CLIENTELE - SUBURBAN LIGHT (REISSUE)
Merge Records will reissue Suburban Light the start of the label's five-album, decade-plus relationship with The Clientele. Released as a double-disc and one-LP/one-CD set, this new edition will feature not only the album in its original European tracklisting but also a revelatory set of covers, rehearsals and B-sides that reveal the earliest iterations of The Clientele. And there's the previously unreleased "Sarah's Prelude," too, the lovely, lonely and abandoned opener of an album that stuns, even without the strings.

CRONIN, MIKAL - MCIII
As he did on his self-titled 2011 debut and 2013's MCII, Cronin arranged and played nearly all of the record himself, including the tzouras, a traditional Greek string instrument he heard and subsequently bought while on tour in Athens. There's French horn, saxophone, and trumpet. There are mood-altering crescendos and heartbreaking turns-of-phrase, guitars both gorgeous and pugnacious. No longer satisfied with the sound of "just one string player," Cronin arranged parts for a full string quartet instead.

CRUTCHFIELD, ALLISON - TOURIST IN THIS TOWN
The debut full-length by Allison Crutchfield titled Tourist in This Town sonically pulls back the curtain on her life and places Crutchfield center stage, fully revealing her power, conviction, and grace. The Alabama native has immersed herself in music since her teenage years, forming notable bands such as P.S. Eliot and Bad Banana (both with her twin sister Katie of Waxahatchee). In 2012, she co-founded Swearin'-the band in which she would truly begin to formulate and understand her full potential as a songwriter. Her debut album is an accomplished work that integrates her past musical experiences with a pronounced growth in arrangement and instrumentation.

DESTROYER - YOUR BLUES
Bombastic and bold at times, quiet and soothing at others, Your Blues has a theatrical quality that informs the compositions. Recorded with the production duo JC/DC (aka David Carswell and John Collins) -- who aided in the creation of Destroyer?s first three discs -- Dan Bejar ditches the band format he used for 2002?s This Night with tremendous results. Fusing a dramatic vocal style akin to that of David Bowie in the 1970s with 1980s studio achievers like Microdisney and Prefab Sprout, Your Blues is regularly breathtaking.

EAST RIVER PIPE - THE GASOLINE AGE
Saluted by ROLLING STONE as 'the most gifted of the new loners', F.M. Cornog, aka East River Pipe, originally released The Gasoline Age in 1999. Named Album of the Year by both THE NEW YORK TIMES and England's THE INDEPENDENT, The Gasoline Age was inspired in large part by nighttime drives on New Jersey's seedy Route 22. Automobile imagery appears throughout the album: cybercars, stolen cars, pimpmobiles. The cars all seem to carry with them a romanticism that emphasizes even further Cornog's gift of creating a lyrical mood without tying his flights of fancy down to specifics.

EITZEL, MARK - HEY MR FERRYMAN
Hey Mr Ferryman is Eitzel's first full studio album recorded entirely in London. It was made at 355 Studios with Mercury Prize winner Bernard Butler (ex-Suede, McAlmont & Butler), who has produced and/or recorded albums with Tricky, Ben Watt, Bert Jansch, Edwyn Collins, and more. Butler produced Hey Mr Ferryman and played all of the electric guitar, bass, and keyboard parts on the album. Hey Mr Ferryman features the vivid melodies long associated with Eitzel's former band American Music Club-which remains a cult favorite to this day-as well as Butler's distinctive guitar that serves to complement Eitzel's expressive vocals.

EX HEX - RIPS
Ex Hex is a power trio from Washington, DC. Drums, bass, guitar, P90s, searing leads,this is unapologetic rock 'n' roll spat out in the discipline's mother tongue. With Wild Flag on hiatus, Mary Timony (Autoclave, Helium) needed a new outlet, so she retreated to her basement and started writing. Mary found Laura Harris (The Aquarium, Benjy Ferree) and they hit it off immediately. In walked Betsy Wright from the wilds of Virginia. Betsy is a performer and an ace piano player, and before long, she was slinging a cherry SG as the third member of Ex Hex.

As the frontwoman and indomitable force behind beloved garage-pop combo The Ettes, Hames blazed a memorable trail across the '00s underground. Last summer, she began work on her solo album at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville. Playing guitar, piano, and electric harpsichord, Hames was aided in her effort by bassist Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs), drummer Julian Dorio (The Whigs), and lead guitarist Adam Meisterhans (The Weight). Other contributors include veteran keyboard/organ wizard Dave Amels of Reigning Sound and vocalists Carey Kotsionis (Bobby Bare, Jr.) and Lillie Mae Rische (Jack White).

HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER - LATENESS OF DANCERS
Lateness of Dancers is an open, confident, immediate album, and it feels, at times, like a direct response to the darkness of Taylor's last record, 2013's Haw, or to the searching of 2010's Bad Debt, the stunning acoustic LP he made at his kitchen table shortly after the birth of his son. Lateness of Dancers includes many of Taylor's longtime collaborators, like Phil and Brad Cook of Megafaun, the guitarist William Tyler, and his erstwhile recording partner Scott Hirsch.

HOSPITALITY - TROUBLE
The long-awaited 2nd album from Brooklyn's Hospitality, Trouble is an album that wonders about the mysteries that lurk just beyond our field of vision. Slyly and sympathetically, Papini ponders a Saturday afternoon fishing trip as a wrenching interplay of life and death, the perfect blue sky at an air show as a setting for a soured romance. Papini elaborates: "Most of the songs are about everyday environments that arouse anxiety or unease. The ocean isn't meant for people; we aren't supposed to be there, and some of the animals that live there are much bigger and faster than we are in the water. Includes digital downlode code.

KING KHAN & THE SHRINES - IDLE NO MORE
King Khan has been a celebrated cult figure in garage rock circles for almost two decades now, characterised by his wild appearance and larger than life persona. 'Idle No More' is the band's first album in six years and self-proclaimed 'masterpiece'. And while it's named after an indigenous Canadian civil rights movement, it's far from being hectoring polemic. Instead it's a raucous forty minutes of good time party rock from a band who are high on life.

LAMBCHOP - LIVE AT XX
As Merge fans know, Lambchop has been on the label since 1993, releasing a string of widely varied but consistently brilliant records. But the live Lambchop experience has been somewhat elusive in the U.S. While the band has toured the gilded theaters of Europe and elsewhere for nearly two decades, the Nashville group has seldom toured their home country. To help celebrate Merge's 20th Anniversary the band showed up in one of their largest lineups in recent memory -- 11-strong, including multipleguitars, keyboards, piano, and a horn section.


TRACKLISTING:  01. INTRODUCTION 02. I WILL DRIVE SLOWLY 03. THE NEW COBWEB SUMMER 04. GRUMPUS 05. SHARING A GIBSON WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. 06. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE? 07. JOKE 08. NATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY 09. HEY, WHERE'S YOUR GIRL 10. YOUR FUCKING SUNNY DAY 11. UP WITH PEOPLE 12. GIVE IT

LAMBCHOP - NIXON (REISSUE)
Nixon was released in early 2000. It was Lambchop's fifth LP, and the first record of any kind that the band had released in over a year, after a half-decade in which scarcely three months went by without some kind of new Lambchop music. Starting with the swell of horns in the middle of album opener "The Old Gold Shoe," Nixon glides easily from one unexpected grace note to the next, peppering in funk, R&B, gospel, country, vintage folk-and integrating them all, not presenting them discretely. Lambchop has always taken its Nashville origins seriously, making use of the wide variety of talented musicians who live and work in Music City. Available on vinyl for the first time in the US. 180-gram vinyl. Includes digital download and bonus CD of live recordings. From Kurt: "This was a rare solo performance recorded at Radio France of (with the exception of one) as-yet unrecorded Lambchop songs with cassette tape loop accompaniment for a show they had called the White Sessions. It's called "How I Met Cat Power," which actually is true; we were doing back-to-back promo sessions that day..."

The Magnetic Fields' first two albums, The Wayward Bus and Distant Plastic Trees, make their debut appearance here on vinyl, packaged together as a two-LP set. The album artwork on both Distant Plastic Trees and The Wayward Bus was created by watercolorist Wendy Smith, who had also painted album covers for the Rough Trade band Weekend (a musical project from members of Young Marble Giants). Her beautiful wrap-around paintings, now printed in a larger format, along with remastered audio make this two-LP set an exciting addition to the Magnetic Fields discography.

MCCAUGHAN, MAC - NON-BELIEVERS
On May 5, Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan will release Non-Believers, his first solo album under his own name. McCaughan wanted to use the album to explore his attraction to that early-'80s era of music when punk evolved into something more introspective, focusing on themes of isolation and eventually turning into post-punk and new wave. As he puts it, he was thinking about a time when bands were "using keyboards and drum machines to relate through their music a disaffection or alienation" from society, school, whatever.

POLVO - SIBERIA
During their initial run from 1990-1998, Polvo crafted a sound so fantastically obstinate and so perfectly cockeyed that its DNA is essentially resistant to mediocrity or repetition. On Siberia, that sound feels more limber and more aerodynamic than ever. Its songs glide and bob like UFOs, both serene and unsettling. Some of that is owed to a looser approach. "Preparing for In Prism, we labored over that material pretty intensively," explains founding guitarist Ash Bowie. "A lot of the songs on this album were not rehearsed much at all. I'd like to think this album has a few more adventurous moments." One of those is the spiraling "Blues Is Loss," which moves from a dense knot of sound-an impossible tangle of Bowie's and Dave Brylawski's guitars, Steve Popson's chugging bass, and Brian Quast's tumbling percussion-to a conclusion that clangs and peals like church bells. There are the classic-sounding moments, too, like terrifically herky-jerk album opener "Total Immersion," which is grounded in surging bass and a pair of surgically focused guitar lines. An obvious point of comparison would be to Today's Active Lifestyles, released-perhaps not coincidentally-exactly 20 years ago. Where that album thrived on a nervous, coiled energy, Siberia feels more surefooted, more poised and controlled. It's the work of a band that's been here before, but the experience has only made them more at ease. Siberia is a record that's humming with confidence, the sound of a band with nothing to prove, but proving it anyway. With digital download card.

PORTASTATIC - THE SUMMER OF THE SHARK
Mac McCaughan, co-founder of Merge Records and frontman of the band Superchunk, began recording solo albums under the name Portastatic in the early 90s. Beginning with this album, Portastatic evolved from a lo-fi side project to become McCaughan's main focus throughout Superchunk's long hiatus in the early '00s. Recorded in Chapel Hill NC, The Summer of the Shark included contributions from Janet Weiss (Wild Flag, Quasi, Sleater-Kinney), Tony Crow (Lambchop), Margaret White (Versus, Matt Pond PA), Matthew McCaughan (Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger), Aaron Oliva, and John Plymale.

REIGNING SOUND - SHATTERED
Shattered will be Reigning Sound's first album for Merge and the first full LP by the group since 2009's Love and Curses. The band?s principal songwriter/member is Greg Cartwright, who's been leading the shifting cast of characters since 2001. The album was recorded at Daptone's Brooklyn studio (where drummer Mikey works in the office) and masterfully engineered by Wayne Douglas. The recordings are warm and punchy, a mixed bag of rockers, ballads, and something in between. There are only 11 songs on the album, but the band reckons it's just right.

SPIDER BAGS - FROZEN LETTER
Formed in 2005, Chapel Hill, North Carolina's Spider Bags were largely a revolving cast, with only Dan McGee (guitars, vocals) persevering through the various incarnations of the band. But during the 2011 recording of Shake My Head, the current lineup consisting of Steve Oliva (bass) and Rock Forbes (drums) was finally solidified. Building upon the foundation laid down by its predecessor, Frozen Letter rocks with the clairvoyance of three musicians who have spent a lot of time recording and touring together over the last few years. "When we started this record, we weren't even thinking about it being released. We just did it to have fun and keep moving forward." says Forbes. This approach allowed the band to push itself further out into the psychedelic frontier than ever before, aided by engineer/producer Wesley Wolfe. Recorded mostly live over the course of a few days, there's an exhilarating urgency to the record, as heard in riff-driven rockers like" Back With You Again in the World" and "Chem Trails". The band brings the tempo down a notch for "Coffin Car", which finds them mining an ominous morbidity over one of their prettier chord patterns. "We Got Problems" comes on like a true acid trip, alternating between utter terror and unfettered joy. Featuring a heavy and repetitive pattern, a slew of effected guitars, and searing guest leads from Superchunk's Mac McCaughan, the song encapsulates an entire Spider Bags epoch in under six minutes. Frozen Letter is the band?s fourth full-length record overall and first for Merge Records.

SUPERCHUNK - I HATE MUSIC
The band's latest release, I Hate Music, is Majesty Shredding's dark twin. It's similarly aggressive-often moreso (see "Staying Home")-and every bit as energetic. It reflects the joys of a life spent immersed in music ("Me & You & Jackie Mittoo," "Trees of Barcelona"), but there's a dark undercurrent as well. That title isn't tongue-in-cheek, but it's really more a question than a statement: When you're 20, lazy co-workers and romantic missteps number among your biggest worries; two decades later, life's bigger questions knock louder and louder, demanding answers. This deluxe LP is pressed to transparent orange vinyl and is packaged with an I Hate Music stencil and an exclusive bonus 7-inch pressed to white vinyl. The 7-inch's bonus tracks will not be part of the album's digital download or available for sale digitally

TEENAGE FANCLUB - MAN-MADE
Teenage Fanclub's Man-Made is the August installment in the Merge Records 25th anniversary reissue series. Originally released in 2005, Man-Made is a classic Fanclub record in tone and arrangement, and handsomely demonstrates the "less is more" maxim--it is both airier and more light of touch than it's immediate predecessors. Teenage Fanclub made the record in Chicago with John McEntire (Tortoise) at his Soma Electronic Music Studios. Though McEntire's production is subtle, his unique aesthetics are definitely apparent on Man-Made as odd keyboards and sundry other inevitably electronic apparatuses bubble and bleep just below the surface of fuzzed-out guitars, chugging basslines, and layered vocals.

TELEKINESIS - TELEKINESIS!
On August 20, Merge will reissue the 2009 debut album from Telekinesis on LP. The reissue of the album, enthusiastically titled Telekinesis!, marks the first release of the record on vinyl in the US. In addition to the 11 original album tracks, the LP pressing also includes the five tracks from the out-of-print Coast of Carolina EP. The five-track EP will be pressed on the B-side of the record after a locked groove. Influenced both by the carefully constructed timeless pop of the '60s and '70s and by the nonchalance and brevity of classic indie rock, Telekinesis! introduced the world to Michael Benjamin Lerner. The album was recorded at Two Sticks Audio in Seattle with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, The Thermals). Michael wrote and sang all of the songs and played nearly all of the instruments on the record. The result was an album that inspired Carrie Brownstein to describe it in her now-defunct NPR Music column as "perfectly crafted and utterly gleeful," while SPIN.com declared, "If you don't like Telekinesis, your ears don't work."

Formed in Melbourne in late 2008, Twerps enjoyed immediate success, releasing a series of vinyl singles and cassettes on various labels around the world. The release of their 2011 self-titled debut album led to appearances at SXSW and CMJ and tours with Real Estate, Mac DeMarco, and others. Not wanting to wait until 2015 to unleash new songs on present and future fans, Twerps quickly recorded the delightful Underlay EP, which Pitchfork described as "songs fraught with universal, emotionally familiar sentiments."

TYLER, WILLIAM - DESERET CANYON (REISSUE) (RSD)
Deseret Canyon was the first collection of largely solo guitar-based composition by William Tyler. Originally released in 2008 by German imprint Apparent Extent under the moniker The Paper Hats, it is now being reissued under Tylers own name. The album is imbued with immense meditative space in comparison to Tylers more recent work, such as 2013s widely acclaimed Impossible Truth. The blend of familiar melody, atmospheric arrangements, and esoteric subject matter is present, but in a nascent form. Deseret Canyon is exploratory in both aesthetic terms and technique. It is the sound of a guitarist and composer coming into his own, finding his "voice."

WAXAHATCHEE - IVY TRIPP
Recorded and engineered by Kyle Gilbride of Wherever Audio at Crutchfield's home on New York's Long Island-with drums recorded in the gym of a local elementary school-Ivy Tripp presents a more developed and aged version of Waxahatchee. "The title Ivy Tripp is really just a term I made up for directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents. I have thought of it like this: (Waxahatchee's last album) Cerulean Salt is a solid and Ivy Tripp is a gas."

BUCKNER, RICHARD - BLOOMED
Bloomed is the 1994 debut album from Richard Buckner. The album is remastered and released on CD and 180-gram vinyl. Both formats include a CD containing 11 bonus tracks of radio sessions, live performances, and original recordings of songs that appeared on future releases. Spin described Buckner as "equal parts Bay Area bohemian and dust bowl traditionalist," while Pitchfork wrote, "It's a traditional outsider-country record in the lineage of Townes Van Zandt. Buckner's voice is all honey and oak, his guitar style elaborately twanging, his constant subject matter heartache."

EITZEL, MARK - HEY MR FERRYMAN
Hey Mr Ferryman is Eitzel's first full studio album recorded entirely in London. It was made at 355 Studios with Mercury Prize winner Bernard Butler (ex-Suede, McAlmont & Butler), who has produced and/or recorded albums with Tricky, Ben Watt, Bert Jansch, Edwyn Collins, and more. Butler produced Hey Mr Ferryman and played all of the electric guitar, bass, and keyboard parts on the album. Hey Mr Ferryman features the vivid melodies long associated with Eitzel's former band American Music Club-which remains a cult favorite to this day-as well as Butler's distinctive guitar that serves to complement Eitzel's expressive vocals.

SAINT RICH - BEYOND THE DRONE
Marion put down his guitar and got behind the drum kit. Peslak started strumming the opening chords to "Dreams," a new song they'd finish within the hour. By the end of the weekend, neither had left the house. There were seven new songs. And a new band. They named it Saint Rich.

WAXAHATCHEE - IVY TRIPP
Recorded and engineered by Kyle Gilbride of Wherever Audio at Crutchfield's home on New York's Long Island-with drums recorded in the gym of a local elementary school-Ivy Tripp presents a more developed and aged version of Waxahatchee. "The title Ivy Tripp is really just a term I made up for directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents. I have thought of it like this: (Waxahatchee's last album) Cerulean Salt is a solid and Ivy Tripp is a gas."

DESTROYER - FIVE SPANISH SONGS
n November 26, Destroyer will release Five Spanish Songs, an EP of songs written by Spanish musician Antonio Luque of the band Sr. Chinarro. Produced by JC/DC and recorded at their studio in Vancouver earlier this summer, Five Spanish Songs features musical contributions from Nicolas Bragg, David Carswell, John Collins, Stephen Hamm, and Josh Wells. Dan Bejar writes: It was 2013. The English language seemed spent, despicable, not easily singable. It felt over for English; good for business transactions, but that's about it. The only other language I know is Spanish, and the only Spanish songs I really know are those of Sr. Chinarro, led by Antonio Luque. I've been a decades-long fan of how he conducted his affairs, his strange words, his melodies that have always felt so natural (this is important), his bitter songs about painting the light. Something about them, I knew I could do it...
