THE TREWS - HOPE & RUIN (Bumstead Records)
The Trews are, without a doubt, the greatest rock band of their generation.' - Performer Magazine (From cover feature, April 2011)

The Trews' fourth full-length studio album, Hope & Ruin, out on their own Trews Records, is a level-raising evolution for the Toronto-based rock band with two gold records, 10 top-10 singles and 800-plus concerts logged. Recorded live-off-the-floor, they captured lightning in a bottle, resulting in a sound that is raw, electric and igniting. Rock


 

Joan As Police Man - The Deep Field
JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN - THE DEEP FIELD (America Records)
Digging in deeper than ever before, The Deep Field begins with the words 'I want you to fall in love with me,' and continues to unfurl an unashamed lust for life. It's unquestionably her best, most significant album yet - in Joan's own words, 'my most open, joyous record,' but it's her most soulful record, and also her most rocking; her most personal, yet her most universal too. Indie Rock




Paul Simon - So Beautiful Or So What
PAUL SIMON - SO BEAUTIFUL OR SO WHAT (Hear Music Records)
Produced by Phil Ramone and Paul Simon, with liner notes written by Elvis Costello, So Beautiful or So What is one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year.

Rolling Stone magazine recently declared it, 'His best since Graceland,' and National Public Radio affirmed, '...his new music balances great poetry and pop. Paul Simon is a national treasure.' In their current issue, Filter Magazine calls the new album, '...a new masterpiece from the Picasso of music.' (UNCUT). Folk / Singer Songwriter


 

Red Fang - Murder The Mountains
RED FANG - MURDER THE MOUNTAINS (Relapse Records)
Red Fang deals in kick-ass heavy rock. On their Chris Funk (Decemberists) produced, Vance Powell (Kings Of Leon, White Stripes, Raconteurs) mixed Relapse debut "Murder the Mountains", the quartet wave a middle finger at fashion and bet the proverbial house on substance over style. The incredible 'Wires,' 'Number Thirteen.' 'Hank Is Dead,' and 'The Undertow' are just a few of an onslaught of highlights on this front-to-back set of great fucking songs. Alternative Hard Rock
