SUPERCHUNK says to hell with aging gracefully and unleashes some serious socially conscious thunder on “What A Time To Be Alive,” out now on MERGE RECORDS!

After the shocking, and for many, demoralizing result of the 2016 election, “I didn’t buy the silver lining some were promoting that ‘well, at least art and music will be great now!’,” says Superchunk co-founder and frontman Mac McCaughan. “Obviously, any sane person would gladly trade four to eight years

HORIZON mourns the untimely loss of TOM PETTY in the midst of an already sad week. But his music lives on, through his amazing records.

He took a Dylan-esque, Byrds-type rock & roll sound, tinged more than a little by his Florida Southern roots and the greatest American rock band EVER, and backed all of it up with an underlying uncompromising instinct & integrity in the art.

And find the story of his intense and loving defense of Roger McGuinn during a studio session.

ECM Records has a stunning new series of releases that should have every jazz, classical and avant-garde music fan (including Mr. Gene) excited!

The Giovanni Guidi Trio plays jazz of uncommon originality and reflective depth.

Each of the players has a strong sense for the dialectics of sound and silence.

Dan Bejar returns with DESTROYER’s followup to “Poison Season”; it’s a collection of lush, multi-layered pop called “ken” that recalls 2011’s breakthrough “Kaputt.”

Of his 12th studio album and its enigmatic title, Destroyer’s Dan Bejar offers the following: “Sometime last year, I discovered that the original name for “The Wild Ones” (one of the great English-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was “Ken.” I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift the original title of that song and use it for my own purposes.

JERRY DOUGLAS BAND makes their expanded and beautific recorded debut on Jerry’s dynamite new album, “What If,” out on CD & LP NOW!

It’s hard to believe that finally, after over 40 years in the biz, after working with everyone from Paul Simon, James Taylor and Guy Clark to Elvis Costello, Derek Trucks and Dan Auerbach, not to mention virtually everyone in bluegrass from JD Crowe to Alison Krauss, and after releasing a dazzling catalog of solo projects, Jerry Douglas has never released a studio album featuring his namesake band. Until now, that is, with What If.

DAVID RAWLINGS loses the machine and whips out POOR DAVID’S ALMANACK on his new album, out NOW from ACONY RECORDS on CD & vinyl LP!

For Poor David’s Almanack, Rawlings leaves the Dave Rawlings Machine moniker behind and serves up a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. The album of ten new songs was captured by studio wizards Ken Scott (Beatles, David Bowie) and Matt Andrews on analog tape during a week of sessions at legendary Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch
