1.  Now That The Light Is Fading [LP] (Vinyl) ~ Maggie Rogers
Maggie Rogers grew up playing banjo on a working farm in rural Maryland and first came to the public s attention when she appeared in a video posted on YouTube of Grammy Award-winning producer Pharrell Williams teaching a Masterclass at The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where Rogers was a student. In the clip, Rogers plays an unfinished recording of Alaska and the song earned slew of media attention. Spin declares the song blends folk, electronic, and pop music sensibilities to form an entirely new hybridized sound, while Paste calls it hauntingly beautiful. The Los Angeles Times said it has the lilting vocal inflections of a country song and the depth of a poem.

2.  Death Song (Vinyl) ~ The Black Angels
The Black Angels – Austin’s psych rock masters – have confirmed details for their upcoming album, ‘Death Song,’ This will be the five-piece’s first full-length release in four years. Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, the music on ‘Death Song’ serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety and unease. “Currency,” a strong contender for the heaviest song the band has ever put to wax, meditates on the governing role the monetary system plays in our lives, while slow-building psychedelic earworm “Half Believing” questions the nature and confusing realities of devotion. Recorded between Seattle and Austin, ‘Death Song’ features production from Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes, The Shins). The 11-track collection offers a sharply honed elaboration on their signature sound - menacing fuzz guitar and cutting wordplay, steeped in a murky hallucinatory dream. Since forming in Austin in 2004, The Black Angels have become standard-bearers for modern psych-rock, and the New York Times has said they “play psychedelic rock as if the 1960s never ended, and they are absolute masters of it”. The band has toured with Queens of the Stone Age, Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Black Keys + more, and played festivals such as Glastonbury, Fuji Rock, Primavera, Harvest Fest, Coachella and Bonnaroo. Two of the band members co-founded Levitation Festival (formerly Austin Psych Fest) in 2008, which has since grown into one of the best-reviewed and expertly-curated festivals in the country.

3.  American Teen (Vinyl) ~ Khalid
18-year-old El Paso-native singer/songwriter, Khalid, burst onto the music scene with his first single "Location", which received great critical acclaim. By 18-years-old, Khalid, who is classically vocal trained, had drawn on his experiences with moving often and the unique experience of growing up having lived in two continents and parlayed them into the creation of his viral smash, "Location". Khalid released "Location" before his high school graduation and it garnered over 1.52 million plays in less than two months, along with critical praise from various music tastemakers.

4.  Diskomo/Goosebumps EP (Vinyl) ~ Residents
Originally released as a 12 single in 1980 based on The Eskimo, this collectors edition includes 3 bonus tracks. Pressed on translucent yellow vinyl. New 12 45 RPM EP reissue. All sounds heard on Goosebump were originated on toy instruments which were provided by Toys-R-Us, Inc. - Drawing of The Residents by Jad Fair of Half Japanese
