Featured New Releases:
Lana Del Rey - Born to Die
Lana Del Rey has certainly made a splash before and after releasing the hit song "Video Games" in October. She has since intoxicated the music industry, which has watched her every move leading up to the release of Born to Die. A kick back to some of the bouncy story-telling of acts like Lily Allen, her sultry perception ping-pongs more between summer songs and haunting ballads. One thing is for sure - all eyes are on her for some time to come.

Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas
A seminal figure in rock music, Leonard Cohen's 12th studio album (the first since 2004) was completed in 2011 while he continued to tour around the world. His history is nothing short of prolific, dipping his toes into not just song-writing, but writing novels as well as poetry, one of which jumped from it's New York times publish to Old Ideas. An undisputed idol for many songwriters after him, he may title his ideas "old", but there is little doubt that they were his first.

The Jealous Sound - A Gentle Reminder
Amidst a history of uncertainty on the state of the band and new material, The Jealous Sound re-emerged in 2009 support of a tour with another start-and-stop band, Sunny Day Real Estate. While there is no formula to how much a band should tour or create new music, their long-awaited reunion follow-up, A Gentle Reminder, is proof to picking up where you left off. In this case, picking up even stronger, with bass work from Foo Fighter's Nate Mendel, and access to the Foo's private studio to record.
