“Nashville’s new star” (CBS This Morning) Brittney Spencer announces her highly-anticipated debut album, My Stupid Life, out January 19th via Elektra. The first track, “Bigger Than The Song,” showcases Spencer’s ability to excel on the fringe of genre periphery with her honest and free-spirited songwriting, and it’ll be performed on NBC’sTODAY Show on September 29.

The album’s 13 tracks are a culmination of her experience during her time trying to “make it” in Music City, discovering herself in the process. The Baltimore native moved to Nashville ten years ago, and this album is Spencer’s commitment to be unapologetically herself. Recorded at Sound Emporium Studios and Blackbird Studio in Nashville, the album is produced by GRAMMY award-winning  Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge), with the exception of two tracks, Marcus “MarcLo” Lomax (Monsters & Strangerz, Maren Morris, Justin Bieber, Kelsea Ballerini), who produced the lead single — “Bigger Than The Song” — and Romil Hemnani (BROCKHAMPTON), who produced “New To This Town.” 

This feels like a long time coming,” says Spencer. “It took me three years from the time I released my first EP Compassion to now to release my first album. These songs serve as my introduction to country music and I wanted to give them all the time and care that they (and my fans) deserve. I wrote a lot of songs from the back corners of my mind because I wanted to take a good, deeper look at myself and create something true to who and where I am at this time in my life. The more I put the pen to my feelings and thoughts, the more I realize I’ve heard similar sentiments throughout my life. Through making this album, I’ve learned we’re not alone in our heads, and I hope this album hugs the tiny, loud parts of our overthinking brains that sometimes need it most.

The project features award-winning collaborators including Grace Potter, Maren Morris, Abbey Cone & Sarah Buxton, plus guitar contributions by Jason Isbell.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes return with their fifth studio album, 'Dark Rainbow' - set for release on 26 January 2024. The Rattlesnakes have built a reputation for blistering anthems that owe as much to brooding desert rock as it does hardcore and power-pop. They’re redefining punk-rock with a sound that straddles eras and genres, putting The Rattlesnakes in a category all their own, while also challenging tired cliches and setting the world to rights.

Limited edition on glacial blue vinyl. Iron & Wine's Who Can See Forever is an accompanying live record to the film of the same name. Captured at Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, the soundtrack features nineteen songs from the twenty plus year career of singer-songwriter Sam Beam. Having found inventive ways to re-invent his catalog live over the years, Who Can See Forever offers new and fresh versions of Iron & Wine songs including "The Trapeze Swinger", "Boy With a Coin" and "Naked As We Came." The film - initially intended as a live concert film - evolved into a visual portrait capturing Beam during a creative outburst that earned him four Grammy nominations in four years. Like his music, the film touches on universally personal themes as Beam juggles being an artist, husband and father. Taken as one, the soundtrack and film are a fascinating first-time glimpse behind-the-scenes of Iron & Wine.

Mac Miller's Swimming marked a pivotal point in the late artist's career. His devotion to constant sonic exploration and artistic reinvention had already been well-documented prior to the album's release -- the quantum leap from his Billboard chart-topping debut Blue Slide Park to his sophomore album Watching Movies with the Sound Off, his tour de force as a producer on his 2014 mixtape Faces and ability to direct a full band on 2016's The Divine Feminine were evidence of his steadfast commitment to growth in his craft. Yet upon its release, Swimming was immediately understood by both his fans and critics alike as the high water mark of his career: an album that perfectly showcased the musical chops he had developed vocally and instrumentally over the course of a decade. This understanding was reinforced when, just 3 days after the album's release, NPR Music published a Tiny Desk Concert where Miller and band performed album cuts "Small Worlds," "What's The Use?" featuring regular collaborator Thundercat and "2009" with a full band. The now-iconic performance remains one of the highest streamed performances in the history of NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series and is now available on vinyl for the first time.

    “Last autumn, I found that my friends and I were going through so many life changes… everything either calmed, settled, fell apart, came to a head or imploded,” says Sheeran. “When I recorded Subtract with Aaron Dessner, we clicked immediately. I feel he has captured the feeling of autumn so wonderfully in his sonics and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do.”

    Kill Rock Stars Nashville

    Featuring a gamut of guests including GRAMMY Award-winners Billy Strings and Jerry Douglas, Queen of Time celebrates love and loss, but above all, the art of living as an unattainably-a vibrant, powerful woman who can share herself with the world, and yet define a mighty sense of inner self as well.

    Normaltown Records

    At its heart of The Howdies is a love for the hard scrabble heroes of country music’s early days and the freewheeling feeling of the Outlaw era. The musical styles of Appalachia and the old Blues come together to create a distinctly American art form – where the rules of musical tradition are often bent or even broken with a wink and a smile.

    Metal Blade

    What happens when two Danes and a German walk into a studio loaded with HM-2 pedals, a knack for writing hooks as infectious as a rash, and a love of old-school death metal? As supergroup-of-sorts Asinhell reveals: the reinvention of Swedish melodeath in the modern era. Featuring members of Volbeat, Insidious Disease and Morgoth.

    The Above is album number five and feels even more inventive, even more wide-ranging than anything Code Orange have released to date. It’s the work of creators who have a vision and a road-map – all be it off-the-beaten-path – of how to reach that destination. Another triumph and an album that will surrender its secrets slowly.

    Despite Harm's Way's reputation for unrelenting brutality, Common Suffering surprises at several turns with quieter moments of well thought out songwriting that emphasize light and shade. It's their understanding of how to effectively orchestrate these dynamics that makes an already ironclad record feel infinitely more merciless.

    On the blazing heels of their highly-lauded 2021 debut album, KK’S Priest return to sin again.

    Southeastern offers confessions, reflections, and promises that confront and make communion with those who have come before and remain with us still. Its twelve tracks represent an extended meditation on the concept articulated by another celebrated southern storyteller, author William Faulkner: "The past is never dead. It isn't even past."

    Maroney gives a resounding “so be it!” that washes away the transgressions of time, while still being aware of what days gone by have made of him. After 40 minutes and 13 tracks, Ultrapure is as resonant in one's headphones as it is in Maroney’s headspace.

    Aging’s minimalist piano ballads are darker and more contemplative than anything the Broken Social Scenester has released before. Across the 33-minutes can be found the spirit of Drew classics like “Lover’s Spit” and “Sweetest Kill,” but with a sense of sorrow rarely heard on previous material.

    Industrial instigators 3TEETH return with another collection of angry, jagged diatribes. A skull-caving assault that edges their heaviness even further into the swirling abyss of nihilism and biting social commentary, Endex also continues a melodic evolution last heard on 2019's excellent Metawar. The impending doom never sounded so good.

    Since 1988, Cannibal Corpse have been at the forefront of death metal, shaping and defining the genre. In 2021 they raised the stakes again with their 15th album, Violence Unimagined, growing ever more complex and intense, and in 2023 they return with its successor, the equally monstrous Chaos Horrific, starting a new chapter in their legacy.

    Yep Roc Records

    Written with a series of friends including S. Carey, Madi Diaz, and Christian Lee Hutson, Avalanche is an achingly beautiful exploration of loss, resilience, and growth. The songs are deceptively serene here, layering Owen Youngs’ infectious pop sensibilities atop lush, dreamy arrangements.

    Global dancefloor queen Kylie Minogue moves the party from the shiny mirrorball disco to the sweaty, neon-lit club on the flawless Tension. Much like Disco, Tension is a master class in pop wizardry and escapist bliss. Releasing an album this expertly crafted and stunning in her fifth decade in the business is an absolute wonder to behold.

    Toward A Never Ending New Beginning is full of reflection and raw, unfiltered honesty that will most definitely connect with listeners on a deeper level. Combining electronic beats with subtle instrumentation, each song is sonically diverse and thoughtfully crafted, taking listeners on a journey of self-discovery.

    Playing country-inflected orchestral pop with sardonic wit and deep feeling, Mitski underlines why she’s one of the very best singer-songwriters working today. A disregard for the mainstream proves again to be Mitski’s strongest armour, as The Land… becomes her most sonically interesting full-length yet.

    Side A hosts Blood Incantation's signature crushing riffs, thunderous drums, and guttural vocals of the abyssal depths while Side B’s atmospheric synthesizers, haunting melodies, and otherworldly timbres will take you on a journey through the boundless expanse of space. A must-have for any fan of extreme metal or the avant-garde.

    End is perhaps the "grandest" Explosions album – seeing the Texas band further underline their credentials as rock’s finest instrumentalists with another offering of deep, emotive tracks. Although exploring endings, it feels like the band are far from done and will continue to evoke emotions long into the foreseeable future.

    Slayyyter’s second album sees her delving deeper into her pop stardom with an extravagant Los Angeles starlet persona centered around themes of fame, sex, femme fatales and celebrity obsession. Equally as vicious as it is vulnerable, the electrifying production of the concept album is set to elevate her status as a rising pop trailblazer.

    Metal Blade

    The champs of epic metal return with their first album since 2018’s Exile Amongst the Ruins and tenth overall. The new batch of material obsesses over endings and the concept of finality, filtering this preoccupation through Primordial’s long-established formula of galloping rippers and stately marches.

    Bloodshot

    Loveless’ trademark candidness and razor-sharp wit remain, but here her voice is wiser and more controlled. And while she holds onto a vintage country heart and a heartland rock soul, this album also presents something new and matured. Captivating and complex, it’s a triumphant moment from an artist who’s continuing their stride.
