DREAMERS - This Album Does Not Exist - Fairfax Recordings
After more than two years of nomadism and cross-country touring, as well as two EPs, Los Angeles' Dreamers is set to unleash its debut full-length LP This Album Does Not Exist. The smart pop trio, comprised of Nick Wold (vocals/guitar), Nelson (bass/vocals), and Jacob Wick (drums), wrote much for the album in Brooklyn before moving to L.A. and tracking at Fairfax Recordings (formerly Sound City Studios). Led by singles like "Drugs" and "Sweet Disaster," DREAMERS pits the party and the paranoia of escapism in seemingly effortlessly tight, three-minute tunes. Album tracks like "Pain Killer" and "Lucky Dog" follow in this vein, swinging with handclaps and driving with sing-along choruses. Throughout This Album Does Not Exist, DREAMERS toys with themes of existence and existentialism, but it's easy enough to get sucked into their world and dance the big questions away. Also available as an  Indie Exclusive Limited Edition White Vinyl

Known for their record-breaking tracks, undeniable energy and all around good vibes, Florida Georgia Line release Dig Your Roots on Big Machine Label Group.  The award-winning duo's highly anticipated third studio album uncovers pieces of their lineage along with an evolved creativity. Our album cover says it all, shares Brian Kelley. "Tyler and I are continuing to grow musically and personally. We really wanted this album to reflect who we are and our lives in this moment, but also where we came from.  Tyler Hubbard adds, we both started out playing guitar, singing in church and writing songs so we wanted to let fans see our foundation a deeper side to us. We couldn't have picked a more fitting title or image for DIG YOUR ROOTS.

THE BEACH BOYS - Becoming The Beach Boys: The Complete Hite & Dorinda Morgan Sessions - Omnivore Recordings
In September of 1961 Al Jardine, Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, and Mike Love stepped up to a microphone together for the first time at the home of Hite and Dorinda Morgan to demo The Beach Boys’ first three songs. Between that September date and March 1962, before signing a seven-year contract with Capitol Records on May 24, 1962, they committed nine songs to tape under the direction of Hite and Dorinda Morgan. Some iconic, others obscure—“Surfin’,” “Luau,” "Lavender,” “Surfin’ Safari,” “Surfer Girl,” “Judy,” “Beach Boy Stomp” (aka “Karate”), “Barbie,” and “What Is A Young Girl Made Of”— Every complete take, false start, master take, and every second of studio banter during these historic recordings is gathered on this landmark collection, Becoming The Beach Boys: The Complete Hite & Dorinda Morgan Sessions

ANGEL OLSEN - My Woman

ANGEL OLSEN - My WomanANGEL OLSEN - My Woman - JagjaguwarANGEL OLSEN - My Woman
Anyone reckless enough to have typecast Angel Olsen according to 2013's Burn Your Fire For No Witness is in for a rethink with her third album, My Woman. The crunchier, blown-out production of the former is gone, but that fire is now burning wilder. Her disarming, timeless voice is even more front-and-center. Yet, the strange, raw power and slowly unspooling incantations of her previous efforts remain.
