Stuart Marty - Altitude (Indie, Blue) (LP)€33,00
Indie Exclusive Transluscent Blue. Country Music Hall of Famer, five-time Grammy-winner, and AMA Lifetime Achievement honoree Marty Stuart picks up where he left off on Altitude, his first new album in five years, exploring a cosmic country landscape populated by dreamers and drifters, misfits and angels, honky-tonk heroes and lonesome lovers. There’s a desert flare to the music here, a sweeping, spacious feel that conjures up wide-open horizons and endless stretches of two-lane highway, and the production is raw and cinematic to match, tipping it’s cap both to Bakersfield and Laurel Canyon as it balances jangle and twang in equal measure. While it would be easy for an artist as accomplished as Stuart to rest on his laurels, Altitude instead showcases the work of a searcher with an insatiable appetite for growth and reflection, one whose ambition, much like his keen wit and rich imagination, only seems to grow with each and every release. Born and raised in Philadelphia, MS, Stuart got his start in bluegrass legend Lester Flatts’ band at the tender age of thirteen, and by twenty-one, he was working in the studio and on the road with Johnny Cash. Though Stuart built his early reputation backing up royalty, it wasn’t long before Nashville recognized him as a star in his own right, and over the course of forty-plus years as a solo artist, he would go on to release more than twenty major label albums, scoring platinum sales, hit singles, and just about every honor the industry can bestow along the way.
Jewell Eilen - Get Behind The Wheel (LP)€29,90
Hailed by American Songwriter as ”one of America’s most intriguing, creative, and idiosyncratic voices,” Eilen Jewell rises from the ashes on her captivating new album, Get Behind The Wheel, picking up the pieces of her shattered world and finding new purpose after watching her marriage, her band, and what felt like her entire career fall apart in a series of heartbreaking implosions. Co-produced by multi-instrumental wizard Will Kimbrough (Todd Snider, Hayes Carll), the 11-song collection pushes the acclaimed singer and songwriter’s trademark blend of vintage roots-noir into more psychedelic territory, with spacious, cinematic arrangements complementing her revelatory explorations of grief, loss, resilience, and redemption. The band’s performances are electrifying here, resulting in Jewell’s boldest album yet, a powerful work of artistic alchemy that transforms heartache into genuine creative rebirth.
Rose Esther - Safe To Run (Indie,Pink) (LP)€33,00
Excited to announce Esther Rose is joining the NWR family!
Safe to Run — her debut on New West Records — releases April 21. Watch the video for the first track, ”Chet Baker” below.

The 11-track set was produced by Ross Farbe in New Orleans, LA and Placitas, NM and is the follow up to 2021’s acclaimed How Many Times. Alongside longtime collaborators Farbe and Lyle Werner, Safe to Run also features the acclaimed New Orleans based band Silver Synthetic on many songs, Cameron Snyder of The Deslondes, as well as Alynda Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff on the title track, a gorgeous duet that directly merges the personal with the global, superimposing feelings of spiritual displacement onto the larger, looming dread of climate grief.
Fulks Robbie - Bluegrass Vacation (Ltd, Blue) (LP)€33,00
Robbie Fulks’s adventurous spirit has defined a critically acclaimed 30-year career that has included 15 solo albums and two GRAMMY® nominations. He came to national attention as a defining artist of the alt-country scene in the 1990s, with releases on the Chicago-based indie Bloodshot Records, North Carolina’s Yep Roc, and Los Angeles’s Geffen Records. Bluegrass music has always been a part of Fulks’s musical vision bit his new album, BLUEGRASS VACATION, is his first purely bluegrass endeavor. Paired with a cast that features some of the brightest stars of the genre including Sam Bush, Sierra Hull, Ronnie McCoury, Tim O’Brien, Alison Brown, and Jerry Douglas, the result is one of the most remarkable bluegrass albums of the century. In the end, Fulks plants his flag firmly in the bluegrass tradition, a genre that built the stepping stones Fulks walks on today. He muses: ”Electric guitars might give way to computers, as seems to be happening now, but the mountains will still be there.”
Crowell Rodney - The Chicago Sessions ( Limited Edition, Denim Blue) (LP)€37,50
2023 release. Says Rodney Crowell: ”It’s just me and the band in a room together, loose and live and having fun.” Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, The Chicago Sessions is indeed a throwback to Crowell’s early days of making records, but it’s no nostalgia trip. The songs here are vital and timely, touching on everything from love and mortality to race and religion, and the performances are nothing short of intoxicating, fueled by raw guitars, honky-tonk piano, and tight, punchy drums. Tweedy wields a light touch as a producer, his influence subtle yet unmistakable, and engineer Tom Schick’s mixes are dynamic and alive, alternately lush and spacious in all the right places with a spotlight fixed firmly on Crowell’s warm, weathered vocals throughout. Put it all together and you’ve got a masterful, cross-generational collaboration that manages to feel both fresh and familiar all at once, an incisive, engaging collection that balances careful craftsmanship with joyful liberation at every turn.”

Cactus Blossoms - If Not For You (Bob Dylan Songs Vol. 1) (RSD) (LP)€20,00
John Prine once said, “Bob Dylan opened the door when there was no door, and then left it open for others to come through.” When Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, aka The Cactus Blossoms, found that door, they walked right through it. ”Dylan’s music was a friend and guide to me in those early years and has continued to be an artistic home base for me and Page,” Torrey says. ”His songwriting on the Nashville Skyline and New Morning albums are such departure from his mid-‘60s rock’n’roll poetry, and they really comfortably fit into our wheelhouse without us having to imitate his unique style.”
On their EP If Not For You (Bob Dylan Songs Vol. 1) The Cactus Blossoms reimagine four songs from the Bob Dylan songbook. Vol. 1 draws from Dylan’s early catalog and filters his work through the lens of the brothers’ signature harmonies and lush arrangements, adding new layers to these familiar classics. Pressed for Record Store Day on blue vinyl.
Shootouts - Stampede (LP)€37,00
2023 release. The Shootouts didn’t expect to be back in the studio so soon after the release of their Top 10 Americana album ’Bullseye’. But when one of country music’s most legendary artists agrees to produce your next record, you don’t say no. That’s what happened when a mutual friend introduced the band to Ray Benson – longtime frontman and 10-time Grammy-winning founder of Asleep at the Wheel. Just months after the April 2021 release of Bullseye, the Shootouts found themselves hard at work with Benson and co-producer Sam Seifert on the album that would become ’Stampede’. The album continues to follow the Shootouts mission statement of embracing the various roots of country music while filtering it through the lense of a band from Northeast Ohio. It features special guests Asleep at the Wheel, Raul Malo, Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Miller, and Marty Stuart.
Lauderdale Jim - Game Changer (LP)€27,00
At any given time, you’re likely to find Jim Lauderdale making music, whether he’s laying down a new track in the studio or working through a spontaneous melody at his home in Nashville. And if he’s not actively crafting new music, he’s certainly thinking about it. ”It’s a constant challenge to try to keep making better and better records, write better and better songs. I still always feel like I’m a developing artist,” he says. This may be a surprising sentiment from a man who’s won two Grammys, released 34 full-length albums, and taken home the Americana Music Association’s coveted Wagonmaster Award. But forthcoming album Game Changer is convincing evidence that the North Carolina native is only continuing to hone his craft. Operating under his own label, Sky Crunch Records, for the first time since 2016, Lauderdale recorded Game Changer at the renowned Blackbird Studios in Nashville, co-producing the release with Jay Weaver and pulling from songs he’d written over the last several years. ”There’s a mixture on this record of uplifting songs and, at the same time, songs of heartbreak and despair-because that’s part of life as well,” he says. ”In the country song world especially, that’s always been part of it. That’s real life.”

King Elle - Come Get Your Wife (LP)€35,00
Elle King can do many things, ranging from exuberant alternative/punk to soul pop. She’s also been a compelling presence in country music; winning both Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Awards and breaking the 30 year old, glass-ceiling record for women on the radio charts with the lead single “Drunk (And I Don’t Want To Go Home).” She’s collaborated with Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and been on tour with Chris Stapleton for the better part of 2022; it’s been an unbridled love fest with Nashville’s music community.
Now she makes it country music official with Come Get Your Wife, a dozen glorious tracks that run a gauntlet of styles and attitudes leaving King’s roots showing. Set for release on Jan. 27, the quadruple Grammy nominee co-produced the album with award winning songwriter Ross Copperman and the result is a collection that moves through all the topics. From being a hot mess, a glorious excess and a woman coming into her own, King has created a very real, small-town frayed at the edges but solid at core missal.
Elle King, singular, swaggering, sardonic, is a musically and personally fearless woman. With Come Get Your Wife, she sharpens her gaze, digs into her roots, puts her banjo front and center and creates a record that’s as alive and electric as she is. Taking all the pieces – the rock, soul, (blue)grass and country that she loves – she’s made an album that demands your attention, then delivers on all cylinders.
“There’s something about how you put the pieces together,” King offers of her first true country project. “This whole album is a crazy quilt of all sorts of moments and things that might not seem to go together, but because they’re me, they do. It’s very Southern Ohio, very who we are – and very much a lot of people who are just like me, because I know they’re out there.”
Ernest - Flower Shops – The Album (Opaque Red) (LP)€27,00
Following his first project Locals Only, Ernest is back and blossoming with 11-track debut record FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM). Unveiling a new, more traditionally country chapter in his sound, FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM) tells a complete story with Ernest at the helm, irrefutably rooted in his Nashville heritage and dancing along the boundary where country, pop, r&b, and roots music collide. The one-of-a-kind creator peppers in tropical elements reminiscent of Locals Only with heavy steel instrumentation, traditional country themes, and the troubadour’s signature wordplay. Listeners are in for a treat as FLOWER SHOPS blooms.
Price Margo - Strays (LP)€35,00
In just three remarkable solo albums, Margo Price has cemented herself as a force in American music and a generational talent. On her fourth full-length Strays, recorded in Topanga Canyon and produced by Jonathan Wilson, the singer/songwriter presents a clear-eyed mission statement delivered in blistering rock n’ roll. Margo Price has something to say, and nothing to prove.
Hirttämättömät - Nyt Jotain Toimintaa (LP)€20,00
BIO: Hirttämättömät perustettiin Joensuussa alkuvuodesta 2018.
Bändin alkuperäinen tarkoitus oli soittaa autenttista countrya suomeksi.
Aika nopeasti tajuttiin että eihän me päästä ees omin avuin hevosen selkään, ja amerikkaakaakin ollaan nähty vain postikorteissa ja telkkarissa.
Ruettiin sit tekemään hommaa liikoja miettimättä..siellä on nyt kantrit, bluesit, punkit ja rockabillyt sekasin.
Niin syntyi bändin oma tyyli, mikä ollaan itse nimetty TörkyKantriBluesiksi!
Hirttämättömien ensimmäinen pitkäsoitto – Nyt jotain toimintaa –
sisältää viisi omaa, yhden koverin ja kolme käännös hittiä.
Levy on äänitetty ja mixattu bändin toimesta DIY hengessä alkuvuodesta 2022.
Alvin Dave - Eleven Eleven + 3 bonus (11th Anniversary Expanded Edition) (LP)€37,50
HIENO UUSINTAPAINOS BONUSBIISIEN KERA!
DAVE ALVIN / ELEVEN ELEVEN To celebrate the eleventh anniversary of Eleven Eleven, Dave Alvin has added three songs to the album, which were originally released as bonus tracks on the deluxe edition. This album includes songs, which are now standards in Dave Alvin’s live set, including ”Johnny Ace is Dead”, ”Harlan County Line” and ”What’s Up With Your Brother,” featuring Dave’s brother, Phil Alvin. The album received critical praise upon it’s release. MOJO said, ”A lot happens on Eleven Eleven – all of it good,” and The Independent (UK) claimed the, ”album may be his best yet!” ”Harlan County Line” was featured in the TV show, Justified, where Dave Alvin also guest starred. The show is coming back, which will hopefully bring new attention to this album. Since this album’s released, Dave Alvin has released to albums with his brother, Phil Alvin, an album collaborating with Jimmie Dale Gilmore, an album by his psych rock improve group The Third Mind, as well as a compilation of solo odds and ends. But Eleven Eleven stands as one of Dave’s greatest albums, among his many great albums. It is more than worthy of an anniversary reissue, and an Eleventh Anniversary released on November 11, as was the original album, is only appropriate.
Nenni Emily - On The Ranch (Indie Exclusive, Colored Vinyl, Autographed / Star Signed) (LP)€29,00
The sun sets over the ranch, a can of beer cracks, and an acoustic guitar wrangles the day’s thoughts and memories into a semblance of order. During moments like these, California-born and Nashville-based singer and songwriter Emily Nenni chronicles her life through delicate songcraft rife with honky-tonk spirit and spiked with just the right amount of soul. In possession of a deep understanding of music stoked by a lifelong passion and sharp chops shaped by endless sets in smoky bars and sizzling doublewides, she asserts herself as the consummate country storyteller on her full-length debut album, On The Ranch.
Dropkick Murphys - This Machine Still Kills Fascists ( Ltd, Crystal) (LP)€40,00
Dropkick Murphys history with Woody Guthrie dates back decades, from covering ”Gonna Be A Blackout Tonight” on their 2003 album Blackout, to using some of Guthrie’s writing about Boston in their immortal hit ”I’m Shipping Up To Boston”. But on their latest album, This Machine Still Kills Fascists, Dropkick Murphys have crafted an entire record around the seminal American folk icon, bringing Woody Guthrie’s perennial jabs at life-many of which are from the 1940s and ’50s-into the present, with the resulting music eerily relevant to today’s world. The idea for the collaboration had been percolating between Guthrie’s daughter Nora and the band for more than a decade, with Nora curating a collection of her father’s never before-published lyrics for the band over the years. The result is one of Dropkick Murphys most unique releases, and the culmination of two like-minded rebellious artists collaborating, albeit nearly a century apart.
