New Releases

North Mississippi AllstarsNorth Mississippi Allstars - World Boogie is Coming CD - The seventh studio album from the Americana music luminaries. They produced it themselves at their own Zebra Ranch Studios in Coldwater, MS, aside from a day in the studio with Robert Plant (and his harmonica) at Memphis' legendary Royal Studios. The Dickinson Brothers did it with the help of long-time friends, Lightnin' Malcolm, Duwayne and Garry Burnside, Kenny Brown, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Sharde Thomas, Chris Chew, Sid and Steve Selvidge, Plant and others. World Boogie Is Coming is the record that perfectly ties it all together, fusing the elements that have made the Allstars special while pushing the band's sound further into the future than ever before.

Coming Soon

Moon TaxiMoon Taxi - Mountains Beaches Cities CD- For their third album, indie rock quintet Moon Taxi explored new landscapes by amping up the speed and turning up the volume.

"One thing we didn't want to do was stray too far from what we did before," keyboardist Wes Bailey says in a press release. "We really knew that things for the band had shifted in a good direction and we were growing because of our last record (Cabaret). We wanted to continue the energy we created from that record."
