Los Angeles, CA’s Weezer will release their fourteenth studio album, entitled OK Human, on Friday, January 29th on Crush Music/Atlantic. The album’s first single, “All My Favorite Songs,” can be heard now.
Nine-time Grammy nominee and multi-platinum global superstar, Sia, is releasing her eighth studio album, Music Songs From And Inspired By The Motion Picture, on February 12th! This fourteen-track album is comprised of new pop songs from and inspired by her film, Music, including hit singles “Together” and timely call to action track “Courage To Change” that were released in 2020. Music was announced on November 19th with the release of “Hey Boy”. Her directorial debut film Music is an original cinematic experience written and directed by Sia (Featuring Maddie Ziegler, Kate Hudson & Leslie Odom Jr.) – film to be released February 12. Sia co-wrote the screenplay and directed the movie, making Music her feature film directorial debut.
The world may seem like a pretty strange place right now, but if nothing else that’s forced us into realizing that being human is a shared experience. That sentiment lies at the core of Earth Is A Black Hole, the second full-length from the Los Angeles rock act Teenage Wrist.
The album also marks the group’s first release as a duo, with guitarist Marshall Gallagher stepping up as frontman, and longtime drummer Anthony Salazar backing him up in spectacular fashion. Gallagher explains. “I wanted to keep this band going and we didn’t know exactly what that would look like, so I wrote two songs and demoed them myself to see if everyone was still on board.” Those songs turned out to be the jangly power ballad “Yellowbelly” and spacey rocker “Wear U Down”—and with that, a new era of Teenage Wrist was born.
The artistic liberation of this lineup change, coupled with the past two years the band spent touring alongside genre-smashing acts such as Thrice, allowed Teenage Wrist to expand on the shoegazing sound that helped establish them as one of the most exciting rock bands around today. From lush, guitar-driven songs like “High Again” to the atmospheric ambience of “Stella” and syncopated aggression of “Earth Is A Black Hole,“—most evidently on the swirling anthem “Silverspoon,“— Earth Is A Black Hole sees the band shifting their songwriting focus to a more modern sound that showcases the limitless potential of the band.

Glowing in the Dark, the fourth studio album by critically acclaimed Django Django, is about escapism & hope.

Glowing in the Dark is out February 12, 2021 via Because Music on standard black vinyl.
Loretta Lynn introduced the world to a crucial aspect of American life that was rarely acknowledged when she released her 1970 autobiographical album, Coal Miner’s Daughter. Already a country star with chart-topping singles, this title track, led a string of #1 hits and became her first recording inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall Of Fame. In addition, she was among a notable list of singer/songwriters who brought a woman’s perspective to country music. Celebrating 50 years.
The Pretty Reckless’ new album Death By Rock And Roll is their most ambitious release yet. It was written through the heartbreaking losses of Chris Cornell, who was one of frontwoman Taylor Momsen’s musical muses, and longtime collaborator Kato Khandwala. The titular single became their fifth #1 at Active Rock Radio, a first for a female-fronted group. Features “25”, “And So It Went” w/ Tom Morello, & “Only Love Can Save Me Now” w/ Matt Cameron & Kim Thayil.
Double LP features a special etching on Side D.
The apocalyptically heavy follow up to 2019's 'ABYSSAL'- Swedish Black Death Juggernauts HUMANITY'S LAST BREATH return with another monolithic opus - Välde. Meaning 'Empire' in Swedish, 'Välde' is a darker, bleaker journey down the same Blackened Death meets Groove paths...but this time with a further emphasis on the atmospheric nature of the band's sound. Almost uncomfortably bleak at times, echoes of the likes of Ulver and Shining are present on 'Välde', combining perfectly with HLB's signature blackened Groove template that they have become so renowned for. An atomic bomb of a record - this is Humanity's Last Breath in their coldest, nastiest form.

Caithlin De Marrais’ third album What Will You Do Then? is incandescent—a candle lit in memory of the moody midnight teenage bedrooms of the early 90’s. Lustrous and sometimes deeply spare, What Will You Do Then? took form over the course of two and a half years, shaped by Rainer Maria guitarist Kaia F, with contributions from vocalists Annie Nero and Mark Duplass, multi-instrumentalists Lary Hoffman and Lucola Bang, drummer Stuart Gunter, MIDI programmer Emily Lee, and others. The songs were mastered by Adam Ayan, who put the finishing touches on Lana Del Rey’s most recent records.
