Phosphorescent C'est La Vie Houck’s first new Phosphorescent release in five years chronicles a life-altering period which saw him fall in love, start a family, leave New York for Nashville, and build a studio from the ground up. With a focus on translating these profound experiences to music as intuitively as he could, Houck pushes the boundaries of what a Phosphorescent record can sound like, balancing the earthy and the incandescent, the troubled and the serene, creating his own musical cosmos in the process.

Marlon Williams Make Way For Love Known for his effortlessly distinctive voice, Make Way For Love marks Marlon's exponential growth as a songwriter. Throughout 11 original songs, he explores new musical terrain and reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship. While Make Way For Love draws on Marlon's own story, it captures the vagaries of relationships we've all been through: the bliss, ache, uncertainty, and bitterness. Like the best breakup records, Make Way For Love doesn't shy away from heartbreak, but rather stares it in the face, and mines beauty from it. Delicate and bold, tender and searing, it's a mightily personal new step. Make Way For Love was recorded with producer Noah Georgeson and his backing band, The Yarra Benders, in North California's Panoramic Studios after several weeks of pre-production in his native Lyttelton, New Zealand with regular collaborator Ben Edwards. The finished result is an expansive record that moves Marlon several paces from "country" - the genre that's been affixed to him more than any in recent years - with forays into cinematic strings, reverb, rollicking guitar, and at least one quiet piano ballad.

Strand Of Oaks Hard Love The fifth album from Timothy Showalter under the name Strand Of Oaks. Following on from the previous 2014 album, HEAL, this is an extremely raw, viseceral record full of heart-felt and party tunes.. "For me, there are always two forces at work: the side that's constantly on the hunt for the perfect song, and the side that's naked in the desert screaming at the moon. It's about finding a place where neither side is compromised, only elevated." - Timothy Showalter Dead Oceans CD | LP

Kevin Morby Moonshiner / Bridge To Gaia Folk & country tinged single from Kevin Morby. “I wrote ‘Moonshiner’ a few years ago after reading what has become one of my favorite contemporary books: The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt,” Morby explains in a press release. “The book was very inspiring to me at that time and it pulled a few different songs out of me — ‘Moonshiner’ being the most directly influenced.” Dead Oceans 7"
Shame Songs of Praise Now in on picture disc The debut album from London post-punk / indie-rock band Shame. “Embracing insecurity as a strength is what this song is about. It's the first song we ever wrote as a band and I think that's reflected in the simplicity of it. It's honest and raw, whilst attempting a stab at number one in the pop charts across the eastern hemisphere. We wanted to turn the album artwork into the video for ‘One Rizla,’ highlighting our vulnerability as individuals whilst paying homage to [U.K. cult movie] Withnail & I simultaneously.” - Shame on lead single One Rizla Dead Oceans CD | LP
