The Brew - Triptych 3 CD set - Last year The Brew took stock of what they had created since 2008’s Back To The Woods. The result is their most ambitious project to date; the release of a three-album set called Triptych. Each album reflects a facet of this multitalented, New England-based group: A Garden In The Snow, showcasing song-craft; Light From Below, bringing live-show energy into the studio; Hard Enough To Break, a romp of polish and power.
Triptych: The Brew’s triple tour-de-force, hailed by seminal rock writer Steve Morse as “…raising the bar for an eclectic sound that touches everything from classic rock to Appalachian root notes and Romantic classical music, topped with dashes of art rock, psychedelia and jazz funk. It is a combination that is theirs alone.”
The Radiators - The Last Watusi (3 CDs) - These 3 CDs represent the best of each of the final 3 shows at Tips. The first night was an all acoustic affair mixing Rads originals with covers by Bob Dylan and Jesse Winchester. The last two discs represent a band on a mission, to go out in style and leave nothing on the table. The songs cover the entire 33 year career of the band and include fan favorites and a couple of lesser known Rad's gems. Altogether the set includes over 3 ½ hours of gritty down home Nawlins' rock n' roll that shows just how versatile the band was. Enjoy!!!
The Disco Biscuits - Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens CD - This album originally released in 2011, has finally found its way to the shelves of HGMN! Praised by many as the first studio Bisco CD in ages that actually sounds like the band they love. Some fans say its the best studio CD of their career. We agree that its great and if you've yet to add it to your collection - we can now hook you up!

Special guests include: George Wein, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Ani DiFranco, Fleur De Tease, Allen Toussaint, Bonnie Raitt, Jim James, Steve Earle, Wendell Eugene, Lionel Ferbos and the Preservation Hall Jr. Jazz Band!
Blue James Band - Give Me the Love or Give Me the Fight CD - Blue James Band’s third album, Give Me the love or Give Me the Fight, is a testament to the band's passion for imaginative, fun-filled, soul-soothing songs. The album sees the band as vibrant as ever, with their sunny roots/rock n' roll/reggae style fused throughout the album's ten tracks. Inventive musicality and lyrical style underlie Give Me the love or Give Me the Fight, allowing each track to take listeners on their own journey, while providing singularity that impresses like a fingerprint. The album is transcendent, yet accessible. Highlights include the reggae-infused "Not Ready For You" and the worldly "They Come and They Go."
The Disco Biscuits - Bisco Inferno 09/10 DVD - Recorded live at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Morrison CO on May 30th, 2009 and May 29th, 2010.
The Avett Brothers - Carolina Jubilee CD - Reissue of the adored Folk/Roots band's 2003 album. A Carolina Jubilee has been extremely hard to find since the North Carolina trio's ascension to global success. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass.
Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit - Live from Alabama CD - In August of 2012, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit assembled in their home state of Alabama in front of a couple of sold-out concert halls to record their first live album, Live From Alabama. After years of hard touring, the critically-lauded band has gelled into a versatile rock and roll squad that is equally at ease performing Muscle Shoals soul to hardcore country to balls-out rock. Live From Alabama s tracklist mines some of Isbell s most popular songs and includes a pair of inspired covers in Neil Young s Like a Hurricane and Candi Staton s Heart on a String.
