Paramore – Brand New Eyes
Over 2 million records sold, three gold and one platinum single, a gold DVD release, countless sold out tour dates and numerous awards and nominations including the 2008 Grammy Nomination For “Best New Artist” Award, you can say that Paramore has reached mainstream stardom. Arguably one of the most anticipated releases of 2009, “brand new eyes” is by far the band’s most personal album. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock, My Chemical Romance) and co-produced by the band, the long-awaited follow-up to 2007’s platinum certified second album, “Riot!” The 11-track collection is unquestionably Paramore’s best and brightest album to date

Yacht – Psychic City 7″
Limited edition picture disc single! YACHT returns with a special limited-edition product and the first picture-disc DFA has ever made. The single compiles two remixes of “Psychic City” never before released on vinyl! First, Los Angeles superstars Classixx effortlessly transform the song into a slo-mo electro-dancefloor steamroller. Joe Godard (member of the band Hot Chip and head of forward-thinking Greco Roman Records) then flips the track into a lost mid-80s classic, as if OMD were trying new ideas for a John Hughes film

Brimstone Howl – Big Deal (What’s He Done Lately?)
LIMITED EDITION of 800 on ORANGE VINYL. Brand new album by Lincoln’s favorite garage sons. This time the gang went to Costa Mesa, CA, to record “Big Deal (What’s He Done Lately?)”- (the title references a quote from Johnny Ramone about Phil Spector) – at the Distillery under the guidance of engineer/producer Mike McHugh (Black Lips, Andre Williams, Jon Spencer, etc). The result is considerably more fuzzed than their previous work with Jim Diamond but still pummels. In fact it’s a blast from start to finish!

Various Artists – Ghostly International presents: Moongadget

Like its predecessor, the Moodgadget-curated Rorschach Suite & Synchronicity Suite, the Nocturnal Suite plays like a lovingly assembled mixture, compiling brief, catchy, electronic-minded pop songs built for obsessive repeat listening. The Nocturnal Suite encompasses dance music, indie rock, synth-pop, experimental instrumentals – and, yes, electronic music – but its emotional core is its biggest asset
