A few weeks back, we announced that The Dodos have officially joined the Polyvinyl family, and today, we're happy to share more details on the band's upcoming album, Carrier, which will be released 8/27 on CD, LP (180-gram blue vinyl), cassette, and digital formats! You can pre-order the album now by CLICKING HERE.
The first single, "Confidence," debuted on Pitchfork earlier today, which you can check out HERE, or stream above. In addition to this song appearing on Carrier, it will also be released as a digital single on 5/21.

It's been a long time since Saturday Looks Good to Me have released a proper full-length album, but the wait is almost over!

It's available on CD, LP (limited edition red vinyl), and cassette (red tape), and features some of Kinsella's best work to date. I wouldn't be lieing to you if I said that the album contains some dueling electric guitar lines that are the closest think Mike's ever done in tribute to his 80's hair metal obsession. Trust me...it's rad!
See for yourself with the first single "Bad Blood" below.
Also available on 7/2 is a repress of the Their / They're / There EP which was previously only available on Record Store Day. If you missed it then, you'll be able to pick up a copy on a different vinyl color (clear red), which will be unlimited. That's also available for pre-order now RIGHT HERE.

We're incredibly excited to announce that the new Sonny & The Sunsets album, Antenna to the Afterworld, will be released June 11th! Available on CD, LP (purple vinyl), and cassette, the album is a whole new sound for the Sunsets...and it's amazing. Pre-orders are up RIGHT HERE.
The opening track, "Dark Corners," made its debut on Pitchfork earlier today here. Take a listen below:
The murder of a close friend of the band led Sonny Smith to think a lot about death and life after death. Shortly after, a visit to a psychic/medium brought Smith into contact with another friend who had died. This encounter with the afterworld inspired many of the lyrics on Antenna to the Afterworld. And what a strangely entertaining odyssey it turned out to be.
"I come from the planet of dogs / ... / And I walk on your streets / ... / and I can't wait to find / My little place in your weird world," Smith sings on opening track "Dark Corners," as the song's use of synthesizers lends the perfect sonic counterpart to the science fiction narrative.

The album will be available on CD, LP (teal vinyl limited to 300), and cassette (white tape limited to 100).
If you're not falling over with excitement yet (like me), then check out the first single "Invisible Friend," which just debuted on PitchforkHERE.
One Kiss Ends It All is the first proper full-length album since 2007's Fill Up The Room, and Fred Thomas and co. are picking back up right where they left off. With more sophisticated arrangements and melodies more direct and engaging than anything the band has ever done, the album feels like re-telling the details of a dream minutes after waking. Something new colliding with something that shouldn't make sense in a beautifully strange collage. And always more details hidden in the corners.
