Tomorrow Was the Golden Age is an album length composition by minimalist
ensemble Bing & Ruth. Written and conducted by pianist David Moore, Tomorrow
Was the Golden Age is a halcyonic journey to a neverending place, where music
waxes, wanes and drifts imperceptibly from silence to grand, glowing sound.
Formed in the mid-aughts among music student friends at New York City’s New
School, Bing & Ruth’s lineup has shifted with the scope of each recording. For
Tomorrow Was the Golden Age, the group whittled down from the eleven players
on their first album, City Lake, to seven: two upright bassists, two clarinetists, a
cellist and a tape delay tech, all supporting David Moore’s sublime yet resonant
Moore is responsible for the compelling melodies mediating the overarching
ambience of Tomorrow Was the Golden Age. Outside of Bing & Ruth, Moore
is also a multi-faceted composer, scoring under his own name and for old-time
fiddle groups, which he describes as “drone-based with a lessened concern for
perfect intonation.” These ventures illustrate Moore’s unpretentious devotion to
various musical traditions, yet Bing & Ruth remains Moore’s principal project,
where form ventures even further beyond recognition.
With untethered textures inspired by the indeterminate music of Morton Feldman
and later torch bearer Gavin Bryars, Tomorrow Was the Golden Age achieves
canon-level quality for instrumental music. Within the piece’s extended passages,
Bing & Ruth wander through gradient fields of color, illuminated by a delicate
architecture of slowly developing microtonal harmonies, Steve Reich-ian piano lines
and the same analog tape delay that launched both Brian Eno’s Apollo and the
greatest dub reggae engineers into the unknown.
Moore employed fundamental contrasts as the conceptual mode for Tomorrow
Was the Golden Age. “I wanted to take something from the darkness to the light
and observe what that process would result in,” states Moore. Daybreak offered
one contrast, with its untraceable hues from dawn to sunrise. Silence and its
intrinsic gift of listening offered another. The emergence of Tomorrow Was the
Golden Age from the two is Bing & Ruth’s epic and ultimate reprisal.
The players on Tomorrow Was the Golden Age are David Moore on piano,
Jeremy Viner on clarinet, Patrick Breiner on clarinet, Mike Effenberger operating tape
delay, Leigh Stuart on cello, and Jeff Ratner and Greg Chudzik on bass, respectively.
The album was recorded in Yonkers, New York and mixed in Brooklyn, with Brian
Bender and Moore at the controls.
Intended to be experienced at both high and low volumes, Tomorrow Was
the Golden Age is perfectly calibrated for meditative backdrops, burrowed
headphone listening and utter captivation when performed live. Its sonorous
palette inspires emotional response across a dynamic field, welcoming a journey
to and beyond tomorrow’s promise.

“United Nations is undoubtedly one of the most punk
bands on the planet.” – New Noise
“Flesh and bone shouldn't be capable of capturing this kind
of inhuman ferocity with such clarity and technical
precision.” – Pitchfork 8.1
“This album is violent, dark, full of anger and explosiveness
– and one you shouldn't miss out on.” – Punknews
Featuring material recorded between the spring of 1981
and the fall of 2016, the increasingly controversial and
enigmatic punk supergroup United Nations’ new album
The Next Four Years picks up where “Never Mind The
Bombings” left off, expanding on their already caustic
sound with an even greater sense of urgency and
aggression. It’s a furious homage to the pioneers of punk,
and a scorching critique on the current state of “punk.” It is
the most cathartic music of their mysterious career, and
unquestionably some of the most vital heavy music
released this year.

“Floating Into The Night” is the 1989 debut album by vocalist Julee Cruise featuring songs written and produced by composer Angelo Badalamenti and film director David Lynch (who wrote the lyrics). The songs "Falling" and "Rockin' Back Inside My Heart" were both featured in Lynch's cult television series, Twin Peaks. The instrumental version of “Falling” was the theme song for Twin Peaks while the album as a whole is almost an unofficial soundtrack to the series. The track “Mysteries Of Love” was prominently featured in Lynch’s classic film Blue Velvet. Cruise’s dreamy, light vocals match perfectly with the music and lyrics to make this album sound like it is unattached to any era or time. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with a double sided insert by Plain Recordings.

Sacred Bones has long been closely linked with tight-knit regional punk scenes,
with roster artists representing everything from the icy precision of Copenhagen
(Vår, Lust for Youth) to the acid-fried psych vibes of Tempe, Arizona,
(Destruction Unit) to the grimy lawlessness of New York City (The Men, Pop.
1280, Anasazi). Institute stands at the center of another thriving scene in Austin,
Texas, and we’re proud to be releasing their Salt EP.
Formed in Austin in March 2013, Institute includes members of Wiccans, Glue,
Blotter, Recide and more. Before they were even a proper band, singer Moses
Brown had a couple of raw post-punk songs sitting on a four-track at his house.
Once the lineup solidified, the band touched up one of those songs (“Dead
Sea”) for a demo, then quickly wrote enough material to flesh out that demo
(re-released on Deranged), a seven-inch (on Katorga Works), and now their debut
EP for Sacred Bones.
We fell in love with this band as soon as we heard those early demos, and then
saw a blistering set from them in their hometown earlier this year. The Salt EP is
as sharp as the band’s earlier work but suggests longer, more experimental forms
(“An Absence”) and a more incisive lyrical perspective, dealing with topics from
existentialism to Brown’s experience as a closeted youth. Institute have already
toured with their new labelmates in Destruction Unit, and we’re stoked to
officially welcome these young men into our family.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are set to release a brand new album, Hypnotic Eye.
Their first studio album since 2010, Hypnotic Eye is the band's 13th studio album. It was co-produced by Petty, Mike Campbell, and Ryan Ulyate, reports Rolling Stone . Speaking to the publication about the album, Petty responded to comments that the release sounds like his earlier albums 1976's Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers and You're Gonna Get It from 1978.
"That's what Mike said: 'You sing like you did on the first two albums," said Petty. "Maybe this album does sound like that. But it's that band 30 years later... I knew I wanted to a do a rock and roll record. We hadn't made a straight hard-rockin' record, from beginning to end, in a long time."
The album will feature the songs "American Dream Plan B", "Faultlines", "Red River", "Burn Out Town" and "Shadow People". The release will be supported by a to-be-announced tour. Petty also commented that the band are far from finished. "This band just grows and grows, and that's an incredible gift, I can't see us calling it off," he said.

The acclaimed and highly sought-after LP by Hailu Mergia and
the Walias, Tche Belew, an album of instrumentals released in
1977, is perhaps the most seminal recording released in the
aftermath of the 1974 revolution. The story of the Walias band is
a critical chapter in Ethiopian popular music, taking place during
a period of music industry flux and political complexity in the
Hailu Mergia, a keyboardist and arranger diligently working the
nightclub scene in Addis Ababa, formed the Walias in the early
1970’s with a core group of musicians assembled from prior
working bands. They played Mergia’s funk- and soul-informed
tunes, while cutting 45rpm singles with various vocalists.
While the Walias performed at top hotels and played the
presidential palace twice, their relationship with the Derg regime
was complex, evidenced by the removal of one song from the
record by government censors.
Decades later, Hailu Mergia was surprised to see the album
fetching more than $4,000 at online auctions (it helped that the
most popular of all Ethiopian tunes “Musicawi Silt” appeared on
the record). Now everyone has the chance to listen again—or
for the first time—to this timeless pillar of Ethiopian popular
“Train A Comin” the 1995 release by Steve Earle was his first album since the “The Hard Way” five years earlier. Steve returned to basics on this all acoustic record with help from Peter Rowan, Norman Blake, Roy Huskey, and Emmylou Harris. “Train A Comin’” finds Steve mixing some of his older material written decades before, such as “Mercenary Song”, with choice covers of the Beatles “I’m Looking Through You”, Townes Van Zandt’s “Tecumseh Valley” and The Melodians reggae classic “Rivers Of Babylon”. A critical and fan favorite “Train A Comin’” is a gem and one of the best albums of Steve's career. Issued for the first time ever on vinyl with a double sided insert.

From the very start of Little Big League’s LP Tropical Jinx, it’s clear that there
is nothing little about the band or their second full-length album. In fact, there is
an unmistakable depth in these ten indie rock gems that makes each song fulfilling in a dozen different ways. The brutally honest lyrics of guitarist/vocalist
Michelle Zauner are one of the album’s undeniable high points: the confessions
and confrontations about dealing with family life, relationships and personal failures are both relatable and cathartic. Little Big League have created something
special on Tropical Jinx. It is an homage to the best moments of alternative rock
with the unmistakable spirit of Philadelphia DIY, blended in a way that demands
your immediate attention.

First release for legendary live broadcast of this early Green Day performance - features rare live versions of much of Green Day's pre-Dookie catalogue!
It was during their tour in support of Kerplunk that the band played an in-house set on May 28th at legendary New Jersey station WMFU FM, which was broadcast live. With a song list predominately made up of tracks from their first two albums and early EPs, the performance, featured in full on this LP, offers a perfect retrospective of their early career.
An intimate event without an audience, save for DJs and technicians, the band still play in a typically exhilarating manner for close to 70 minutes, during which, in addition to their own multiple compositions, covers of numbers originally by fellow local bands Operation Ivy and Fifteen are included.
In the near 20 years since this startling performance took place, Green Day have become among the finest Rock bands ever to emerge and now reside in the same league as greats like U2, Queen or Metallica, but listening to this recording now, helps to remember that Green Day have always been great, and its looking unlikely that this status will slip anytime soon.
