1 - AMERICAN OPERA - SMALL VICTORIES - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Incremental progress. Monumental setbacks. Small victories. This is the story of American Opera. More than a record, Small Victories is a collection of moments, both devastating and victorious. Ominous nostalgia confronts hopeful reemergence. Sonically, think Manchester Orchestra meets Ryan Adams, Brand New meets Langhorne Slim - polished stones in a bed of gravel and grit. The result is a stunning eleven-song rollercoaster exploring a complete spectrum of emotion and experiences. It is an album of dynamics - a perfect balance of the fragile and explosive. By the end, we're reminded that sometimes the small victories were all that mattered in the first place - and that the silver linings were not just that after all, but rather small glimpses of a larger hope that can sustain us through even the most miserable of seas. Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Alternative, Folk RIYL: Ryan Adams, Manchester Orchestra, Jenny Lewis, Brand New

4 - BARREN WOMB - NIQUE EVERYTHING - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Since their inception in late 2011, Norwegian noise rock duo Barren Womb have been raising both eyebrows and hell with their nasty swill of Punk 'n' Roll and Blackened Country Noise. Nique Everything, Barren Womb's second and arguably most defining album to date, features 10 brand new bursts of easy listening for the hard of hearing. It sees the band further exploring soundscapes, instrumentation, and themes more commonly found in Country/Americana than in Noise Rock. Yet it still retains every ounce of energy and conviction the duo has been known for in the past. Bronze / Aqua Blue Swirl with Dual Yellow and Gold Splatter. RIYL: The Bronx, Refused, Kvelertak, Turbonegro

TRACKLISTING: 01. Make Sure You Get Yr Whole Head In Front Of The Shotgun 02. Heap Blame/put To Shame 03. White Raven 04. Piss Jugs 05. Town's Back The Way You Came 06. Amyampari 07. Man Fucks Burning Goat 08. Devil Run The Game 09. You Can't Fire Me, Because I Quit 10. Svart Hav

5 - BARREN WOMB - OLD MONEY/NEW LOWS - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Nearly three years since their last full-length release, the Nordic heavy noise rockers in Barren Womb return with Old Money / New Lows, a jarring, mid-tempo dirge in 8 movements that sees the band further evolving into an animal all of its own. From the sparse drumming and venomous narrative of album-opener "Crook Look," all the way through to the haunting, epic finale of "Russian Handkerchief," Old Money / New Lows repeatedly hits like a ton of bricks. And while there's heaviness by the truckload here, there's also a catchiness behind the the nastiness. Accompanying the wall of abrasive guitars, screamed vocals, and pummeling drums is newfound pop sensibility and a tackle box full of hooks in the tradition of the finest AmRep and Dischord bands from years long past.Genre: Noise rock, Post Punk, Post Hardcore

TRACKLISTING: 01. Crook Look 02. Mystery Meat 03. Theory Of Anything 04. Slumlord Millionaire 05. Cave Dweller 06. Drive-thru Liquor Store 07. Mad 187 Skills 08. Russian Handkerchief

6 - BARREN WOMB - THE SUN'S NOT YELLOW, IT'S CHICKEN - (LP) 
SPARTAN


"The sun's not yellow, it's chicken" is the first full-length album from Norwegian noise mongers Barren Womb. After a handful of successful singles and EP's, the duo have already established their vicious blend of hardcore, black metal, country and rock 'n' roll. From the first jangly chords of opener "Kill Hicks" it quickly becomes apparent how much the band has grown since these first efforts. Broader dynamics, more focused songwriting and heavier sounding, topped off with the bleakest lyrics they've written to date. Recorded by Ole Spangrud of Morkemakt and mixed by the band themselves, "The sun's not yellow, it's chicken" features 13 blisteringly honest noise punk ditties, all set in the key of apocalypse. For fans of: Kvelertak, Refused, The Bronx, Drive Like Jehu, Pig Destroyer. Comes on purple vinyl, clear vinyl with splatter. Limited to 500 copies.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Kill Hicks 02. Will You Be God's Art Or Satan's Graffiti 03. Evil Prevails 04. Only Rain Man Doesn't Change 05. Nabrok 06. Obi-wan Chernobyl 07. From Robot Jobs To Robot Homes 08. Live Fast, Die 09. Bong Aqua 10. Zombies Never Go Out Of Style 11. Assmasters Of Reality 12. Nexus Diplomis 13. Segway To Heaven

7 - DARLING FIRE, THE - DARK CELEBRATION - (LP) 
SPARTAN


After years of individual success in some of the scene's most beloved bands, The Darling Fire was born of both deep struggle and deeper friendships. A veritable mosaic of indie notoriety, the band features members or ex-members of The Rocking Horse Winner, Further Seems Forever, Dashboard Confessional, Poison The Well, Shai Hulud, As Friends Rust, and Strongarm among others. The debut album, Dark Celebration, is in many ways what you'd anticipate - energetic, powerful, melodic, and heavy; however, it is far more nuanced than you would imagine. The collective sum of the parts and the alluring heart-on-sleeve lyrics produce a more intimate, spacey and bewitching experience - an authenticity that speaks to the true cathartic nature of the project. The result of their collaboration with producer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines, Government Issue) is a powerful coalescence of artistry and vision - a record that five artists spent their entire careers waiting to make. First pressing on brown vinyl.Genre: Alternative, Indie, Emo

TRACKLISTING: 01. For The Loveless 02. Nevertwin 03. Omaha 04. Catatonia 05. Silver Spider 06. The Constant 07. Saints In Masquerade 08. In Twilight

8 - DEARIST - SONDER - (LP) 
SPARTAN


The UK has always been a breeding ground for rock bands with unique sounds and massive hooks. Enter Wolverhampton's Dearist. From this sleepy midland town comes a modern British take on the likes of American pioneers like Taking Back Sunday, Rival Schools, and Thursday. While a phrase as broad as emo doesn't quite encapsulate the scope of the band's sound - to describe it as "emotional" would be selling it short. Rather, this is truly emotive and dynamic rock music with an anxious intensity that bubbles below the surface - a sense of suburban unrest that brushes uneasily up against the sprawling of concrete and the claustrophobia of modern inner-city life. On Sonder, we witness the band exploring the simple, yet profound realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as our own.Genre: Alternative, Emo, Grunge

TRACKLISTING: 01. Front Master 02. Beaches 03. Fool's Heart 04. Drowning 05. Demuto 06. Essex 1820 07. Part Of You 08. Half Light 09. Shame 10. Pentonville 11. Colours

9 - DEMONS - GREAT DISMAL EP - (12") 
SPARTAN


While the untangling of duality - awe and anguish, faith and fraud, hope and horror - is hardly a new artistic exercise, such rich questioning is rarely attempted in the form of a six song EP. Performing the duties of both architect and builder, Zach Gehring (of beloved Virginia-based Mae acclaim) has designed an exorcism vehicle, the aptly-titled moniker Demons, and allowed often-at-odds voices the opportunity to speak. Decidedly heavier and more aggressive than previous projects, Demons took stylistic cues from the likes of many influential bands that have shaped Gehring as a musician. Traces of Spiritualized, Pedro The Lion, The Afghan Whigs, and Mudhoney can be found throughout and we bare witness as moments of sonic accessibility lose footing and spiral into heavy and brooding responses with little warning. Gehring's fragile vocals transition into angst-ridden bellows and words from the same speaker argue back and forth across the tracklisting. The result is Great Dismal, an oxymoronic battle of declarations, withholdings, distortion, and clarity - a tussle of the psyche examined through opposing dynamics. RIYL: Melvins, Mudhoney, Pedro The Lion, Queens of the Stone Age

TRACKLISTING: 01. There Is No Reward 02. Lenora Slaughter 03. Godless Girls 04. Radical Cure 05. Parallel Lines 06. Quietly Waiting

10 - HIDDEN HOSPITALS - LIARS - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Places revealed to those seeking resuscitation, rejuvenation, decompression, atonement. Hidden Hospitals' iconic mark captures the band's foundational vision: obscured within the double "H," is a universal symbol for aid, while their sound is CPR for rock and roll's dying aesthetic. The sound oscillates around modern rock and cult electronica, with lyrics balancing everyday dualities from the first line- "I lost my fingers when I found my fists." - to the last breath. Together, they create a sound and story that are a pulse of hope grounded in the reality of authentic relationships and experiences. Hidden Hospitals' newest album, Liars, is the manifestation of a singular place, point in time, and frame of mind. And while it is the band's fourth release, singer Dave Raymond feels as though they've hit reset, focusing on the future without forgetting the past: "Close everything else, this is page one."Genre: Alternative, Electronic Rock

TRACKLISTING: 01. Razor Blades 02. Liars 03. Smile & Wave 04. Better Off 05. Acid Rain 06. Pulling Teeth 07. Typecast 08. Memories 09. Taking Sides 10. The Weeds

11 - HONEY AND SALT - HONEY AND SALT - (LP) 
SPARTAN


For Honey and Salt, there is immense power in the parts of a whole. This idea has always been in the band's DNA, from its three members - each with their own distinct and essential contributions - to the flurry of interlocking notes and melodies that make up their intricate songs. Now on their self-titled sophomore album, it also extends into their worldview, as Honey and Salt seek to cut through the pessimistic fog of seemingly inescapable sociopolitical unease, and highlight the vital capability of the individual. Where many bands look for commonality amongst its members' tastes, Honey and Salt revel in their differences, seamlessly blending their disparate influences into a sound that manages to be complex without sacrificing immediacy. The self-titled album deftly utilizes everything from Kinsella-esque guitar lines, to post-rock dynamics, to hardcore ferocity - all while packing an emotional resonance straight out of DC's Revolution Summer - and finds the band completely comfortable with balancing their intricacies.Genre: Math Rock, Indie, Emo, Alternative

TRACKLISTING: 01. A Nihilist Takes Up Knitting 02. Blame Game 03. Oyster 04. Myths 05. Simple Errors 06. But Not Both 07. Bowling Green Memorial 08. Cut The Fabric 09. Empty Space 10. Cascade

12 - KISKA - KISKA - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Heavy, majestic, desolate, ominous. There are no better words to describe Kiska's self-titled, debut release. Leaving behind the more radio-friendly leanings of the quartet's former band, Desoto Jones (Deep Elm Records), the musicians reinvented themselves with Kiska, pursuing a heavier, more dynamic, and frenetic direction. In comparative terms, sonically the record falls in the general vicinity of bands like Jawbox, Failure, Rival Schools, and Hum - driving, dynamic, and aggressive, but with clean and resounding choruses. A delicate balance of space, power, grit, and color. RIYL: Failure, Hum, Sunny Day Real Estate, Rival Schools, Jawbox.

TRACKLISTING: 01. My Regression 02. Conjuror 03. Long Divide 04. Liberation Day (fool's Gold) 05. Deceiver 06. The Late Ungreat 07. Interlude 08. Tear The Dark Down 09. Age Of Rust 10. Room To Move 11. Dying Balloon

13 - LIGHTS & MOTION - DEAR AVALANCHE - (LP) 
SPARTAN


The latest offering in a discography often described as the ultimate symmetry of music and emotion, Dear Avalanche is the most accomplished and fully realized expression of sounds to date from cinematic post-rock powerhouse Lights & Motion. Although many claim he is a magician, the band's braintrust, Christoffer Franzen, is a storyteller...and a masterful one at that. From the majestic climax of "This Explosion Within" to the hopeful build of "Silver Lining" to the delicate innocence of "Anomaly," every Lights & Motion track tells its own story by transporting the listener through tenor and tone to a place where anything and everything is possible. This astonishing interplay of soul and sound is truly a work of art as it connects with the listener in a way that transcends the music itself. Franzen's ability to elicit emotion on a universal level and touch the heart without words, is simply beyond the limits of all imagination. With this expertly crafted collection of rich new soundscapes, Lights & Motion not only again delivers but also elevates the architecture of cinematic post-rock to awe-inspiring new heights. Genre: Post-Rock, Soundtracks

TRACKLISTING: 01. This Explosion Within 02. Feathers 03. Silver Lining 04. Anomaly 05. Pandora 06. Perfect Symmetry 07. Everest 08. Lucid Dreaming DISC #2: 01. Dna 02. Anamorphic 03. Exhale 04. As They Sleep 05. All The Way 06. We Only Have Forever 07. We Only Have Forever (quiet) 08. Vultures 09. Sun

14 - LUCKY SCARS - ROCK AND ROLL PARTY FOUL - (7") 
SPARTAN


Reigning from the depths of Orange County, CA, Lucky Scars has but one goal and ambition: to rock your backyard party. With songs about a female assassin, fear of the government, breaking the law, and killing people in positions of power, Lucky Scars - featuring former members of Sense Field and Ignite - exists to further rattle those who live comfortably in paranoia. Produced by Jim Monroe (CJ Ramone, The Adolescents) and mastered by Stephen Egerton (Descendants, All, Flag), the EP contains four breakneck blasts of good, old-fashioned, beer-swillin' American rock and roll. RIYL: Misfits, The Dickies, The Ramones, Anti-Flag Clear with Red, Blue, and Yellow Splatter vinyl.

15 - MAE - DESTINATION: B-SIDES - (LP) 
SPARTAN


In February 2003, Norfolk, Virginia introduced the world to the charming quintet collectively known as Mae. Not only was their debut album, Destination: Beautiful an instant success with audiences, but their live show proved their talent moved even past just writing alluring hits. The year after, the band returned with Destination: B-Sides, their first recorded project since the release of Destination: Beautiful. The release featured 10 tracks of new and unreleased songs, live recordings, and acoustic takes on old favorites and gave an inside look at the band's beginnings, as well as signs of what was to come. Now, 10 years later, the album is available for the first time ever on vinyl and features a new track listing that includes two brand new takes on two classic Mae songs, "Skyline Drive" (from Destination: Beautiful) and "Where The Falls Begin" (from The Everglow Special Edition). Recorded during the summer and fall of 2014, these recordings mark the first newly recorded music by all 5 original members of Mae in over 4 years.

TRACKLISTING: 01. This Time Is The Last Time (wave Remix) 02. Skyline Drive 3.0 03. Suspension 04. Sun (acoustic) 05. Where The Fall Begins 2.0 06. Tisbury Lane 07. Awakening 08. Futuro (live) 09. Giving It Away (acoustic) 10. Goodbye, Goodnight (s.m.remix)

16 - MY GOD, IT'S FULL OF STARS - M29 (10") - (EP) 
SPARTAN


Colored vinyl. After spending years as a contributing songwriter and active member of the fan adored indie-pop band Mae, Rob Sweitzer made a decision to leave the band in 2008 due to personal reasons, intraband tensions, and a desire to focus on home life and the budding stages of his own independent musical path. With hundreds of thousands of record sales, countless sold out shows, and scores of critical accolades under his belt, there was no shortage of momentum propelling Sweitzer's post-Mae ambitions. Inspired by bands like Delta Spirit, Broken Social Scene, Elbow, and Doves, Sweitzer accumulated a mountain of demos that have been meticulously whittled down to a six song narrative that will serve as My God, It's Full of Stars' official introduction to the world. M29 is a project that has been both long in the works and completely reborn. It is an attempt to untangle conversational wonderings and existential inquiry through sonic layers, cathartic songwriting, and deliberate production. RIYL: Mae, Broken Social Scene, Elbow, Doves

17 - NYVES - ANXIETY - (LP) 
SPARTAN


NYVES is the new electronic music project featuring Ryan Clark (Demon Hunter) and Randy Torres (ex-Project 86). What began as a cathartic outlet centered on a mutual love for moody, electro-rock music has resulted in one of the most gorgeous full-length records of the year. Dark, pulsing soundscapes are woven together by Clark's instantly identifiable vocals; resonate layers are balanced by Torres's crystal clear and expert production; and high levels of experimentation are outweighed only by melodic sensibility and sonic accessibility.

19 - OURLIVES - DEN OF LIONS - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Hailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, musical prowess and pedigree is something that innately runs through Jon Bjorn Arnason and Leifur Kristinsson's veins. Together they are Ourlives, and over the last nine years they have been meticulously assembling a lush and layered musical narrative. Contributing to the post-Britpop tradition of bands like Coldplay, Radiohead, and Travis, Ourlives fuses together delicate textures with driving guitars and drum work, and seamlessly transition between spare and intimate ballads and soaring, declarative anthems. This is Den of Lions, a heartbreakingly gorgeous examination of love and darkness, intimacy and isolation, and paranoia and clarity. Contains five 6" x 6" lyric cards. For fans of Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Keane, Death Cab for Cutie, Travis.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Blissful Ignorance 02. Out Of Place 03. Blurry Eyes 04. Nuna 05. Anything Can Happen Now 06. A Sight To See 07. Seven Ways 08. Loose Lips 09. We Lost The Race 10. Too Much 11. Heart 12. Where Is The Way?

21 - OVER THE OCEAN - BE GIVEN TO THE SOIL - (LP) 
SPARTAN


From the very beginning, Over the Ocean set out to create music that stops listeners in their tracks. Listening to the band's new album, "Be Given to the Soil," is as if you were sitting in a room watching them sweat out every ounce of passion that was poured tirelessly into each song. Thematically and musically, the arrangements are darker, heavier and sparse at points than the band's previous effort, all the while delivering the same level of lyrical complexity that fans grew to love on their debut. "Be Given to the Soil" swan dives right into the soul, plunging the unexplained inner depths of the human condition. From start to finish the record offers raw, gut-wrenching wrestling with the eternal. Each song proclaims the loudness of humanity's inner life - truth, doubt and struggle wrapped up in a disturbingly clear package.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Herons 02. Riverbed 03. God In My Own Image 04. Obscene 05. Air In My Lungs 06. Kiss The Ground DISC #2: 01. Owl 02. Arguing Philosophies 03. Ecology 04. In This Darkness 05. Someone Has To Bleed

22 - SCHEMATIC - COLOR (N) INSIDE THE LINES - (LP) 
SPARTAN


The story of Schematic is one of progress, experimentation and rebirth. After a very successful decade fronting the beloved indie-powerhouse Mae (have sold over 500,000 records!!) as singer/songwriter, Dave Elkins packed his bags and relocated to Nashville for the start of something new. With four LP's, three EP's, and over half a million album sales under his belt worldwide, Elkins longed to refine his approach to making records, to experiment with the unknown. The result emerged under the moniker Schematic, and in the form of a brilliant and breathtakingly complex record, Color (n.) Inside The Lines. Landing on a particular sound for Schematic was, and remains to be, a journey that is constantly evolving. Sonically, the album draws heavily from Elkins' progressive pop leanings, but delves into a new territory of experimentation with compelling grooves, interweaving time signatures, and unique instrumentation. In addition to Elkins' adept handiwork, the record features a veritable dream team of producers and contributors. With additional engineering and production by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Lovedrug); co-writes by Stephen Christian (Anberlin) and Mark Padgett (Mae); and guest musical appearances by Jeremy Lutito (Leagues), Chase Lawrence (Coin), and Eleanor Denig, Color (n.) Inside The Lines was a process of diverse brilliant collaboration. Limited to 500 copies on Red & Yellow vinyl just for Black Friday RSD!

24 - SECRET STUFF - THIS IS FINE - (12") 
SPARTAN


The Nashville trio has been through its fair share of tough, and it comes out in droves in the band's forthcoming release, This is Fine. This is Fine captures the angst and misery of formative years, set on the backdrop of struggling to do even that. It focuses on shortcomings, the burdens of stress, overly critical self-analysis, and coming to terms with it all (the acknowledgement of which is where the title originates).

26 - SHY, LOW - HIRAETH - (CD) 
SPARTAN


Hiraeth: a word without a concrete English translation. While evading an unequivocal definition, it exudes melancholy. Those who have attempted to define it describe the word as a mixture of homesickness, nostalgia, grief, and longing. It is the oppressive guilt associated with memories now passed; the bitter remembrance of joyous occasions that can never be revisited. It is also the title of Shy, Low's sophomore full-length album. Just like the word Hiraeth itself, Shy, Low's continual evolution make them a band that is not easy to define. While it would be convenient to corral the band into the bucket of canonical post-rock bands like Mono, Mogwai, and This Will Destroy You, on Hiraeth, Shy, Low's eclectic palate of musical influences are showcased more broadly than ever before. The band earnestly sifts through the complex relationship between music, art, and the emotions that encapsulate the human experience - and in doing so, they've successfully created a brilliantly moving, yet strangely bittersweet 43 minute aural journey. RIYL: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions In The Sky, Sigur Rs, Mogwai, This Will Destroy You.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Nostos 02. Saudade 03. Anomic 04. Hiraeth 05. Algos 06. Times Gone By

27 - SQUARE PEG ROUND HOLE - JUNIPER - (LP) 
SPARTAN


Elegant, articulate, and expansive, Juniper, the new record from instrumental percussion trio Square Peg Round Hole manages to convey - and evoke - an entire range of human emotions despite its lack of a single sung word. "Because we are an instrumental group, our hope is that people connect with the songs and assign their own meanings to them," says Evan Chapman. "Without lyrics telling the listener how to feel, it leaves the music as an open-ended question." Juniper is a bold artist statement from a fearless creative force, at once expansive and intimate. Together with mix engineer Bryan Laurenson (Copeland), the band has created a record that speaks without words, taking listeners on a journey through the self.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Introduction 02. Our Town 03. A-frame 04. Blithe 05. Momentary Light 06. Lapse 07. Juniper 08. Come/gone 09. Name Not One Man 10. Tomorrow River 11. Smashed 12. Unraveling

29 - STATES - PARADIGM - (LP) 
SPARTAN


After an impressive debut release, indie supergroup States return with their beautiful and lush second installment - Paradigm. Delving into more experimental territory, Paradigm is a lesson in dynamics -- rich atmospherics are grounded by propulsive rhythms, delicate layers are juxtaposed by driving guitars, and heady lyrics are masterfully delivered by an arresting voice. With foundational roots in such beloved bands (Copeland, Lydia), expectations have always been high for States. Paradigm not only secures the bands independence as a stand alone force, it also serves as a statement of what's to come. Second full-length album from members of Copeland and Lydia. Limited to 500 on Silver vinyl.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Circles 02. I Hope You Stay Gone 03. The Night 04. Fever 05. Summer Love 06. Bones 07. Erase It All 08. Electric Mind 09. All In My Head 10. Running Awake 11. Absolute

30 - SULLIVAN - HEAVY IS THE HEAD - (LP) 
SPARTAN


While seven years have passed since the release of the fan adored album Cover Your Eyes, Sullivan has not stood idle. Remaining fully immersed in different facets of the indie music world, each member of the band has continued to hone their craft in a different way, ultimately leading them on a journey back to a starting point. Enter Heavy Is The Head. Eleven songs of beauty and anguish, organically constructed and painstakingly nurtured. With traditional deadlines, label pressures, and industry pitfalls removed from the equation, Sullivan was able to write the album in the purest conditions. Inspiration was captured at the point of conception and given time to percolate for as long as was deemed necessary. The combined result: the strongest and most realized album in the bands discography. After years of rising success with two esteemed albums, Hey, Im a Ghost (2006) and Cover Your Eyes (2007), over 15,000 albums sold, and tours with the likes of Anberlin, Underoath, Bayside and Jack's Mannequin among others, Greensboro, NC's Sullivan amicably split in 2007 to focus on other projects. Now 7 years later, the band has reunited to release their long-awaited third full-length record, Heavy Is The Head. For fans of Taking Back Sunday, AFI, Anberlin.

TRACKLISTING: 01. You Don't Mean It 02. Where The Pavement Meets The Road 03. Profile 04. What's Good For The King 05. The Other Side 06. Pieces 07. Melanoma Lullaby 08. Higher Ground 09. Statuette 10. Seagrams 11. Playing With Fire
