NEW RELEASES 11/25: GILLIAN WELCH, JACK LEE, & two great compilations from SOUL JAZZ RECORDS & GILLES PETERSON! New METALLICA & TRIBE CALLED QUEST are in-stock!

Gillian Welch’s 1996 debut, Revival, is one of the era’s most influential albums, its retro stylings and bleak evocations of the dust bowl era marking the transition from alt-country to Americana. Welch’s revivalism was no Carter Family copyism; here was a startlingly good songwriter who could put you in the place of a barroom girl or mountain moonshiner with a few piercing images. David Rawlings’s impeccable picking and harmonies sealed the deal. This 20th-anniversary set fills a bootlegger’s jug with 21 outtakes and demos of Orphan Girl, Annabelle and the rest.

NEW RELEASES, 11/18: A TRIBE CALLED QUEST says goodbye, and METALLICA returns, along with some jazz/classical goodness by GAVIN BRYARS & KEITH JARRETT, a new NATHANIEL RATELIFF EP, and more!

It’s been eight years since Metallica’s last studio album. But that’s small change next to their long haul to this two-disc resurrection: via the jagged apocalypse of 1988’s …And Justice for All and the focused brawn of 1991’s Metallica. The mostly epic-length tracks – almost entirely written by drummer Lars Ulrich and singer-guitarist James Hetfield – are melodically assured furies of serial riffing and tempo shocks. “Hardwired,” “Atlas, Rise!” and “Now That We’re Dead” are relentless whirls of tribal chug and hyper-thrash, braking hard at the title chorus lines.

NEW RELEASES 11/11: DANIEL BACHMAN, YONRICO SCOTT, STING, RHONDA VINCENT, and a slew of amazing reissues by BOWIE, SABBATH & THE BAND!

Guitarist and former wunderkind Daniel Bachman, at 26, can no longer be considered “precocious.” On even his earliest recordings, released under the moniker Sacred Harp, Bachman’s guitar prowess and compositional voice were staggeringly mature. There was something refreshingly novel about a guitarist not old enough to vote possessing such clarity of vision. But novelty wears off, and even the most big-eared benefactors are likely to become fickle and disinterested over time; the fans who do happen to stick around may begin to hold you to impossibly higher standards – after all, you’re not a kid anymore. And so it is a pleasure to hear Bachman, with his new self-titled album, so confidently answer the bell with an album that serves as both riposte and reckoning. If you’re not with Bachman now, the album seems to declare, you never were.

NEW RELEASES 11/4: There’s somehow a new CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD release, and poet-rapper COMMON’s “Black America Again” has arrived.

A companion EP arriving just three months after their critically acclaimed studio album, ‘Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel,’ the five track collection, includes “New Cannonball Rag,” “Shadow Cosmos” and “Roan County Banjo,” all of which were recorded during the same Stinson Beach sessions that resulted in the prior full-length. With these songs already staples of The CRB’s live sets, it marks the first time the official studio recordings will be available.

NEW RELEASES 10/7: THE MARCUS KING BAND’s new album is upon us, along with a long-awaited SHOVELS & ROPE album, new HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER & TODD SNIDER!

20-year-old guitar wizard and home-grown Upstate phenomenon Marcus King is standing on the verge of something much bigger. Marcus and his lethally talented namesake band have all the instinctive talent, blues chops and road-tested experience to be one of the great groups of our time, and their new self-titled album, produced by ex-Allman Brother Warren Haynes and released on Haynes’ own Evil Teen Records, is nothin’ but the proof. From stinging electric blues to bottomless funk to gutpunch rock & roll to heartfelt soul, Marcus & Co (drummer Jack Ryan, bassist Stephen Campbell, keyboardist Matt Jennings, and the horn section of Justin Johnson and Dean Mitchell) can handle it all with ease, playing with the skill of a combo twice their age. The last time The Marcus King Band played here at Horizon Records in The Bohemian Café, we had a packed house and we practically had to drag Marcus off the stage he was having so much fun. It was an epic way to celebrate Horizon’s 40th anniversary, and we’re thrilled to have the band back for a Fall For Greenville gig on the Michelin stage on Saturday, Oct. 15th. Look for this show to be THE event of the festival weekend!
