Hear Dex Romweber Duo's new album 'Images 13' a week ahead of release - it's streaming on American Songwriter Magazine, along with some enlightening commentary from the Flat Duo Jetter and Silvertone-slinger Dex himself!
Dex sez "Our sound is still a force to be reckoned with." He's got that damn right. This record is a full-on ripper!
Pre-order the album on CD, LP, or digital.
Paste Magazine premiered the first song released from the album, "When I Die." But, wait, there's more! A limited edition "When I Die" 7" will be released on Black Friday (next week) as a little appetizer for the main course.
Lydia Loveless is BACK! PopMatters has the scoop on her brand new five-song EP 'Boy Crazy' coming out November 5th on Bloodshot! The article also features a premiere of the title track. The EP is a collection of sun-washed, rebel-powered pop songs presenting a conversation about judgment and loss of innocence, as one transitions from good old American naivete to you-should-know-better "wisdom."
Pre-order here (with chance to win signed Lydia CDs).
As Lydia put it: "It's my rock and roll tribute to baseball pants and youth."
An all-new Lydia full length LP will be released in 2014.
We've missed him, but the wait was worth it. Pick up this fine slab of tumbleweed noir and maybe we can convince him to do some touring outside the Pacific Northwest.
"Pickerel’s voice is soaked in moody regret, a sinuous baritone that somehow manages to make lost love sound more enticing than the kind that lasts. In Pickerel’s hands, love gone wrong certainly results in more intriguing songs, as in 'Your Wild West,' which seems to channel the loping stride of the Doors’ 'People Are Strange.'" --Seattle Times
Those Ozarkian foot-stompin' indie rockers are back! SPIN has the scoop on the new Ha Ha Tonka album, 'Lessons,' out 9/24, AND they premiered the catchy-like-honey new single "Colorful Kids." Put it on repeat for your adventurous weekend ahead.

AND GP and the boys are HITTING THE ROAD right now!
A few months ago, we told you how this all came about due to a Judd Apatow movie, and now it is so...
Read a nice long interview in the Wall Street Journal about GP, the movie and the new album HERE
Finally, his last solo album Imaginary Television sold out of the vinyl lickety-split, HOWEVER, we recently got a couple dozen back from a European distributor, and we're offering them up to at a first-come-first-serve basis. So get on the stick...
The title track of Rosie Flores' new album Working Girl's Guitar is streaming on MTV Hive.
As they say: "Few album-openers more effectively assert the artist’s identity than the title track to Rosie Flores’ new solo album, Working Girl’s Guitar. The song is an up-front, declarative statement of purpose, from its surf-inspired opening riff to Flores’ strong voice belting out the lines, “I’m a working girl’s guitar / playing towns / travel far” — a fair summation of the life of the 61-year-old guitar slinger who sings the words."
Have a listen HERE, and look for the album in stores and on online on October 16th
As we like to say, "we release a lot of good music, but we can't release ALL the good music."
Some former compadres (well, they'll ALWAYS be compadres...that's what makes this job so great) who have moved on to other labels have released a bundle of new music this month. Being dorky fans, we wanted to let you know about them, as well as offer them up on our site. So, dig in to the new tunes by some old faves:
KELLY HOGAN: I Like To Keep Myself In Pain
ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO: Big Station
ANDRE WILLIAMS & THE SADIES: Night & Day
AND check out the sale going on this month for catalog items from these artists. So, if you are new to the HOGAN/ANDRE/ALEJANDRO camps you can pick up some great music for some friendly prices all through June.
Also new is the LIMITED EDITION LP of Ha Ha Tonka's killer debut album. You asked, you pleaded, some have even made veiled threats....so HERE it is. But act fast, we only made 500 of these.
...and it's about GD time, we say.
One of the finest voices we've ever heard, let alone been lucky enough to work with, Kelly Hogan, announced a new record is finally on its way. After spending most of the past decade singing alongside Neko Case, Jakob Dylan, Mavis Staples and many others, she steps out on her own again. And it's quite the star studded affair, too.
Read all about it in THIS post from the Chicago Reader.
We'll make sure to get our hands on a few for you to pick up. You WILL love it.
In the meantime, get to know some of her other solo material like THIS masterpiece
GP has gathered a few songs that were originally released digitally and put them on a shiny CD for those among his fans who might be technologically challanged (I say that without judgment, as I am one of them). It's called Five Loose Screws and HERE's a great summation of the project from GP himself.
Act fast, it's only available from him and us. Us and him. Whatever.
